No. 19: Tampa Bay Lightning’s Andrei Vasilevskiy

The design on this mask is really cool, but at the same time I find it weird to see palm trees on a hockey mask or anywhere near anything hockey related. It just doesn’t fit. I also don’t like the two-tone blue feel, like the mask would be better suited with one shade of blue. But regardless of my prejudice against palm trees in hockey, it’s a cool design that is relevant to the surrounding area.
