Red Wings goaltender Petr Mrazek breaks out festive holiday mask

Monday December 22nd, 2014

The holidays are often full of bad fashion statements. 

Tacky sweaters boasting a cat wearing a Santa hat with jingle bells have become more of an epidemic than bad gifts and long lines at Walmart. 

But one NHL goalie has been making a Christmas fashion statement that isn’t too bad, as the Red WingsPetr Mrazek is wearing a special mask in honor of the holiday season.

Featuring an evil snowman on the front and an angry Peter Griffin of Family Guy fame wearing a Santa suit on the back, the mask certainly catches the eye,

The words “Merry Christmas” in Czech are also written on the front, adding a nice touch.

Teammate and fellow goalie Jimmy Howard also has a holiday-themed mask, and according to Arthur Regner of FOX Sports, each player's mask will be auctioned off on Tuesday.
