Update: This mask was broken in practice during the playoffs – Schneider has a sharp new retro look – and we have lots of photos plus a video here. Have you seen InGoal – the online Magazine? [wpfblike] It’s too bad Cory Schneider seems destined to sit on the bench behind Roberto Luongo most of the season, because the Vancouver Canucks’ highly touted young backup is sporting a new mask that deserves a much bigger spotlight. With his first full NHL season a certainty after signing a one-way contract this summer following three years in the American Hockey League,...

Thrashers Pavelec out of hospital after collapsing on ice

Atlanta goaltender Ondrej Pavelec was released from hospital after two days of testing followed his scary on-ice collapse just 2:25 into the Thrashers’ season-opening game against the Washington Capitals on Friday night. “I want to thank all the doctors, trainers and emergency personnel who took such good care of me,” Pavelec said in a release from the team. “I would also like to thank my teammates, all the fans and everyone in the hockey community who have reached out to me and offered their support and well-wishes over the last few days.” According to the release preliminary tests of his heart and brain show Pavelec, who was rushed to hospital after failing to regain consciousness even as he was being taken off the ice on a stretcher, had a neurocardiogenic syncope episode. In layman’s terms, he had a fainting spell, though after watching him crumple to the ice and learning he was out between 11 to 13 minutes, most observers feared much worse for the 23-year-old. Pavelec did suffer a concussion when he hit his head on the ice as he fell backwards to the ice, and will undergo further testing to his heart, blood and genetics before being cleared to play. “I hope to be back in action as soon as possible,” Pavelec said. Free agent addition Chris Mason, who took over after Pavelec went down and made...

Kings Bernier Joins Quick in Going Retro for Canucks Season Opener

Mask and Reebok pads sport kings original purple and gold colours Jonathan Bernier didn’t go quite as far as partner Jonathan Quick’s vintage brown pads and retro tribute mask, but the new Los Angeles backup went out of his way to make sure he matched the King’s colourful throwback jerseys. Bernier added a gold and purple twist to his customized Reebok Revokes to mirror the vintage sweaters the Kings will wear four times this season, starting with the season opener in Vancouver on Saturday night. And even though Bernier and the Kings won’t be wearing the old-school jerseys when...

Quick’s Retro Mask and Gear for Canucks 40th Anniversary Home Opener

[wpfblike] Jonathan Quick may mimic his last name on the ice, but the Los Angeles No.1 was a lot slower to take credit for the sharp retro look he will debut in the Kings’ season opener as the Canucks celebrate their 40th anniversary in Vancouver on Saturday night. Quick passed the credit along to equipment manager Darren Granger for coming up with the idea of wearing throwback brown Vaughn pads and a Rogie Vachon-inspired helmet for the four games the Kings will sport the yellow-and-purple retro look this season. “It was all Darren’s idea because we’re wearing the jerseys...

Leighton back surgery keeps Bobrovsky with Flyers

The annual soap opera that is goaltending in Philadelphia took another surprise turn on Friday with news that incumbent No.1 Michael Leighton needs surgery for a bulging disk in his back and will be out for the next six to eight weeks. The announcement comes a day after Flyers head coach Peter Laviolette shocked many, including expected starter Brian Boucher, by starting impressive Russian rookie Sergei Bobrovsky in their season-opening game in Pittsburgh. The 22-year-old, signed in April as an undrafted free agent out of Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League, responded by keeping Philadelphia in the game by stopping all 15 shots in the first period and 29 overall en route to a 3-2 victory over the Penguins. Bobrovsky was already gaining a cult-like following in Philadelphia, and news he will be around even longer, combined with another strong showing in an expected start in St. Louis on Saturday, will only grow the legend of “Bob” among a Flyers fan base starved for its first homegrown goaltending star since Ron Hextall. It also gives InGoal Magazine another chance to link to our feature on the incredibly fast rise of Bobrovsky from Russian standout to potential NHL...
