Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks wouldn’t typically be involved in any conversation concerning awesome goaltender masks. His style is a bit more laid back than some goalies around the league, both past and present. There’s nothing wrong with letting the playing do the talking, but Luongo had a pretty stellar idea in light of Movember.
That’s Luongo’s Johnny Canuck mask. Except now it features a giant blue mustache. Which suddenly makes the usually-bland helmet straight up awesome. Is it Trevor Kidd cool? Well…
Nothing is that cool. At least Luongo is in the Movember spirit though. He’ll be wearing the mask all month long, and then will auction it off with all the proceeds going to charity. Here’s the goalie talking about the mask and whether or not he’ll be growing a mustache behind the mustache.
Hot on the heels of the NHL’s outstanding involvement in breast cancer awareness month, it’s outstanding to see so many players getting in on Movember as well. Everyone from Alex Ovechkin to Luongo are doing their part to use their time in the spotlight to do good for others, and it’s fantastic to see.

It’ll be interesting to see what the mask goes for at the end of the month.
