Flyers Prospect Stolarz: I Am Iron Man In New Mask

Anthony Stolarz Ironman mask rightPhiladelphia Flyers puck-stopping prospect Anthony Stolarz is transformed into Iron Man in his new mask.

Designed by Marcus Power and painted by Franny Drummond of PaintZoo Studios, the new mask combines an actual Ironman mask over his face with images of the Marvel comic superhero on the sides.

It’s a brilliant look and we can only imagine how intimidating it is going to appear in person.

There is a Philadelphia Flyers logo on the top right corner of the Iron Man mask, and a Lehigh Valley Phantoms logo for the Flyers’ American Hockey League affiliate atop the left side of the mask.

The words “War Machine” are scrolled below the Iron Man image on the right, and “Iron Man” is on the left. The chin features his nickname, “Stolie,” and the backplate combines the logo from the popular GGSU Facebook site with a personal expression from Stolarz: “Prove People Wrong.”

That’s fitting for a largely self-taught goalie tabbed as a “late bloomer” after turning a tryout into a gig on the Gulf of Mexico with the North American Hockey League’s Corpus Christi IceRays, and transforming that opportunity into being picked by the Flyers in the second round of the 2012 NHL Draft.

Stolarz new mask is equally inspiring.
