Tim Thomas Giving Away Mask from Historic Movember

Tim Thomas didn’t lose a game in November, so it would be hard to blame the Boston goalie if he was a little superstitious about his routine during a near perfect month that saw him earn NHL First Star honours.

Bookmarked by lopsided wins over Toronto, Thomas was 9-0-0 in November with a 1.76 goals-against average and .941 save percentage, eclipsing the .938 he posted last season en route to the Vezina, Conn Smythe and Stanley Cup Trophy trifecta. So perhaps it is not surprising to hear his tell the Boston Globe the hair atop his lip might stick around even now that “Movember” is over:

“I haven’t decided what to do with the moustache yet,” he told the Globe heading into Saturday’s game against Toronto. “It’s been pretty good luck. It’s day-to-day, a game-time decision, I guess.”

The Moustache mask Thomas wore during a historic November, however, is gone – and now for just $10 you can win it, along with the chance to meet Thomas at a Bruins’ game, with all the money earned in the raffle going to charity.

“Last day for my mask. Can’t believe that it’s already end of November,” Thomas posted on Facebook of a lucky mask that started the month with a shutout of Toronto. “I hope that it is helping to raise awareness and needed funds. Only $10 to enter the raffle to win the mask, 4 tickets to a game and 4 VIP passes to meet me after the game.”

InGoal Magazine is proud to be behind the contest and the mask, which was built by his personal mask maker, Sportmask, and painted masterfully by his personal artist, EyeCandyAir.

Tim Thomas Beware of Stache MAsk

Opponents should have heeded this warning.


Now it is also easy for you to win!

Just check out the contest details by clicking on this link (and remember that even though the contest is structured to ensure tax requirements in the United States and Commonwealth of Massachusetts, anyone in the world can enter to win this historic, game-worn NHL mask).

It really is a chance to own a piece of Bruins’ history from one of the greatest goaltenders in it.

The nine straight victories established a career best for Thomas, the Bruins’ 12-0-1 record marked the first time since January 1969 the team had at least a point in every game for a month, and 25 points was the most they’ve posted since March, 1978.

Of course Thomas, 37, is one of the few Bruins alive long enough to remember the latter, and really appreciate both:

“It’s quite an accomplishment,” he told The Associated Press. “It might be one of those things that only happens … well, for a lot of guys it won’t even happen once in their career, right? For anybody who has played for the Bruins their whole career, obviously no one’s done that since 1969. Unfortunately, the way the world works and the way this league works, November’s gone. It’s behind us. This is December.”

It is, but that means there’s still time to win a historic piece of November. Anyone with a raffle ticket can win the mask that backstopped it – and a chance to meet the guy wearing it and have him sign it – while also helping a charity that is important to Thomas. And that will make Thomas’s November to Remember a pretty cool December for that lucky fan.

  2. TT`s #1 fan

    I agree, TT played there in college, I wonder if it was set up for an old college friend???

      Surely you’re kidding, right? Does this mean you want all people living in MA or VT disqualified? Wait he’s from MI too…so that’s problematic.
