LOOK: Detroit Red Wings reveal military-inspired goalie masks for tonight’s game


Today is Veterans Day and as we fans honor those who served in the United States Armed Forces, may teams and players in the world of sports will be doing the same.

On Saturday, the Detroit Red Wings tweeted out photos of the military-inspired masks that goalies Jimmy Howard and Petr Mrazek will be wearing tonight at the LCA against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Wings also tweeted out a photo of the special Veterans Day nameplates which are on the player’s lockers.

The Detroit Red Wings have a long lineage of tough men, men who you wouldn’t want to meet in a dark alley, men who shave with a rusty knife, you know the type. From Darren McCarty to Bob Probert, all the way back to Ted Lindsay and Gordie Howe. Well with it being the 2nd of November, we’ll take a trip down memory lane to November 2nd, 1985, featuring maybe the best puncher ever to don the winged wheel, Joey Kocur.

Forty-two minutes?! Over two-thirds of the game spent in the box! I hope they got him his own couch for that game. In case you’re of the younger Red Wing fan base and don’t know much about Joey Kocur, he started and finished his career in Detroit, with a few years in New York in between, and a pit stop in Vancouver. Speaking of Vancouver, Kocur was a busy man against the Canucks just nine days after that record for PIM.
