As a new fan of the Panthers and hockey in general I have begun to notice a trend from hockey trickle into my favorite sport of baseball, mask designs.
John Buck the catcher of the Florida Marlins began to have designs on his mask when he played for the Toronto Blue Jays, no doubt influenced by the Maple Leafs and hockey and it got me wondering what designs have been worn by the goaltenders that have passed through Miami and Sunrise. Luckily one website has actually archived this.
So let's start with Jacob Markstrom and work backwards to John Vanbiesbrouck.
Ed Belfour (this is the red away version, he wore a blue one at home)
Wade Flaherty (tough to see)
And finally the most iconic goalie mask in Panthers history...
So there you have it.
