Iron Maiden is one of the best heavy medal bands of all time. Hockey is one of the greatest sports of all time. So naturally, hockey Troopers will do what it takes to pay homage to their favorite band. This typically involves the goalie mask, since the goaltenders are free to be creative on their headgear.

The photos of Eddie in a Flyers jersey on a green goalie mask come from paintzoo. Check out more cool masks on here, including one with Yoda from Star Wars.

Former NHL goaltender Chris Mason had a couple of Iron Maiden masks, including this Aces High one from the 2011-12 season, when he played for the Winnipeg Jets.
