Flyers goalie prospect pays homage to 'It' with clown-themed mask

You want intimidation? I’ll show you intimidation.

Stealing a quote from "Little Giants," but that’s what Flyers prospect Alex Lyon is doing with his new mask for this season, which has to be the scariest in all of hockey.

Lyon, who played in 47 games last season for the Lehigh Valley Phantoms and is expected to start this season there, pays homage to the movie "It" with a clown-themed mask with orange balloons, instead of the red balloons used in the new movie.

This mask is frightening, and perhaps, it’ll give nightmares to opposing players.

Also hitting the Internet is the mask of goalie Brian Elliott. Elliott, signed by the Flyers in the offseason to a two-year, $5.5 million deal, has a mask similar to Ron Hextall when the current Flyers GM was their goalie.

If we’re talking about goalie masks, it must almost be hockey season. The puck drops on a new year on Oct. 4 in San Jose.
