Curtis Joseph combined both Gratton and Belfour’s ideas, creating one of the most remembered masks of all time. Joseph had the open-mouthed creature during his entire career, save for periodic changes with different teams. CuJo also put his nick-name on his mask, a common move by today’s goalies. Joseph was also one of the only NHL goalies to sport the extended-chin design, even more canvas for his great design.
