Some goalies attempt to feature the most intimidating and menacing artwork possible on their masks, but Drew MacIntyre of the Toronto Maple Leafs adopted a different approach to the lid he dons between the pipes. The Toronto netminder revealed a new mask during Monday’s preseason game against the Flyers, and he had a trio of fictional characters with him in the crease helping him stop some pucks. Cheer Bear from the Care Bears, Roo from Winnie the Pooh and a character from My Little Pony all joined forces to make it on the back of MacIntyre’s helmet. Check out a photo of the cheeriest mask in the NHL below.   Photo via Twitter/@SBNation Filed under: Anna Fogel, Headlines, NHL, Toronto Maple Leafs

Drew MacIntyre Of The Toronto Maple Leafs Has The Most Hilariously Non-Threatening Goalie Mask

Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Drew MacIntyre is my favorite hockey player. Why? Three reasons. 1. He shares a name with one of the members of 3MB, because one guy in WWE creative likes hockey and keeps giving wrestlers names like “Drew McIntyre” and “Bam Neely.” 2. I’m a Washington Capitals fan, which means liking anybody on my OWN team (i.e. Alex Ovechkin) is a bad idea...
