Bruins Goaltender Jaroslav Halak Reveals New Mask
Boston Bruins backup Jaroslav Halak, who has rocked an all white mask throughout the preseason, has hit the bricks with his lid for the 2018-19 season, as revealed Tuesday.
The mask is not far off from the brick-inspired design Halak wore during his four-year as a New York Islander, and goes with a pad scheme that features bear scratch marks on all white pads.
The 33-year-old Halak has appeared in one game this preseason (he got the preseason opener in Shenzhen), and stopped 40 of his 43 shots thrown his way in a winning effort.
Entering the first year of a two-year deal worth $5.5 million ($2.75 million per year), Halak comes to Boston after posting 20 wins and a .908 save percentage in 52 decisions a season ago.
