Goalie Mask - Gerry Cheevers - Boston Bruins - Stitches Mask
Hi Hockey Fans
Here is a beautiful reproduction Goalie Mask - Gerry Cheevers - Boston Bruins - Stitches Mask
Cheever's was the first goalie to add any kind of decoration to his mask. Cheevers' iconic stitch-pattern goaltender mask came after a puck hit him in the face during practice. Cheevers, never one to miss an opportunity to skip out of practice, went to the locker room. Bruins coach Harry Sinden followed him to the dressing room, where he found Cheevers enjoying a beer and smoking a cigarette. Sinden told Cheevers, who wasn't injured, to get back on the ice. In jest, John Forestall, the team trainer, drew a stitch mark on his mask. Ever after, any time he was similarly struck, he would have a new stitch-mark drawn on. The mask became one of the most recognized of the era
