#3: Gilles Gratton

Gratton’s unique mask, worn during his days with the New York Rangers.

Gilles Gratton was one of the first netminders to sport a face on his mask, and the tiger design proved to be one of the most intimidating of all-time. Gratton took advantage of the early design of masks, and his painting was a full face representation of the terrifying creature.  Gratton was considered the first to wear an animal on his face, a trademark copied by many of the league’s greatest.
