FLYERS: Emery Reveals Helmet Design for ’09-’10

One of the great things about NHL goaltenders is their ability to produce eccentric and rather interesting designs on the protective masks they wear during games.

Today, the Philadelphia Flyers Official Twitter Page revealed pictures of goaltender Ray Emery’s new helmet, and I must say it is a beautiful piece of work.  The helmet has a predominately white background and features three famous boxers – presumably highlighting one of the great past times in Philadelphia history – on three separate areas of the mask.  On one side, former Heavyweight Champion of the World Joe Frazier is depicted, fists up, and ready to fight.  The other side features a Philadelphia hometown boy in Bernard Hopkins, giving his notorious death stare to onlookers.  Finally, on the back of the helmet, the Flyers goalie has decided to include a bit of Philadelphia lore, placing “The Italian Stallion” himself, Rocky Balboa, for all to see.  Of course, above the picture of Rocky infamously draped in the American flag, lies the name “RaZor,” a nickname given to the 26-year-old during his time thus far in the NHL.

To see the designs, click on the links below:

With Training Camp starting September 13, it’s only a matter of time before we see Razor in action with the new mask.  Here’s hoping for a successful year for #29 in Orange and Black.
