Bauer To Offer Up ‘Star Wars’ Goalie Masks (Sorry, No Anakins Available)

Star Wars Masks

Because goalies apparently don’t have a hard enough time being taken seriously, hockey equipment maker Bauer has unveiled a line of Star Wars themed goalie helmets. If you’re having a hard time making out exactly what is going on in these helmets, you are not alone.

Fortunately, we’ve got some incite courtesy of a press release. And according to said press release, there’s Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Yoda (Martin Brodeur?), Boba Fett, and Shock Troopers.

Yes. SHOCK Troopers. Because who wants a black-and-white Storm Trooper helmet when you can have one that references overlooked soldiers from the crappy prequels?

While it’s a step in the right direction, this does nothing to bring me a step closer to owning  a Lando Calrissian helmet. I guess I’m going to need to spend that money on airbrushing school after all. Until then, I’ll just glue this golden retriever fur to my current helmet and say it’s the Chewbacca model.
