One of the most fun parts of following goalies across the NHL is seeing what incredible artwork they don in the net. Before retiring, Corey Crawford caused a stir with his nightmare fuel mask. Now, Robin Lehner is buzzing for a slick pair of new pads.
The dual knights are a nice touch, as they look like a fearsome guard when the two pads are put together. The angular silver and gold accents add to the overall feeling of ferocity as well.
It’s also a nice play on the theme Lehner used last season with the Knights...
… and the angles are reminiscent of his pads with the Hawk too.
Although it will be tough to beat the all gold kit that Marc-Andre Fleury debuted earlier this year:
With a 2-0 record to go along with a 2.01 GAA and .926 SV%, Lehner has been one of the most fearsome goalies in the league to start the season. Now we’ll see if the fresh pads make him even more impenetrable in net.
