Former St. Louis Blues goalie recently debuted a mask covered in drawings made by his children, and the result is adorable and fantastic.
We’ve been known to feature a lot of impressive goalie mask designs in this space. They’re always top-of-the-line designs, usually by renowned mask painter David Gunnarsson, and are a window into the personality of NHL goalies.
Former NHLer Marek Schwarz took his mask design in a different direction.

Schwarz is playing in the Czech league for White Tigers Liberec, and wore the mask for Game 4 of the league finals. It was his first start in two months, but he led Liberec to a 4-1 win to even their series against Sparta Prague at 2-2.
Schwarz had a cup of tea with the Blues, appearing in six NHL games between 2006 and 2008. He won a bronze medal with the Czech Republic at the 2006 world juniors, and returned to his homeland in 2009 where he has been playing since.
