We got a sneak peak today at Ilya Bryzgalov's new mask, courtesy of the Flyers' Twitter feed. And it is out of this world.

No surprise that the man who fears space danger and spent part of his off-season studying up on how to be a cosmonaut went with a cosmic theme. But we weren't expecting him to prove he's down with the trilogy.

Outside of Yoda carrying a red light saber (even I know it's supposed to be green), this is a beauty. One of the top-five in the league? What do you say?
