Alex Lyon is at it again.
Lyon, who made his NHL debut in net for the Flyers last season and played in 11 games, has spooked his opponents for the past two seasons with horror movie-themed masks. He outdid himself with his new mask for the 2018-19 season.

I am very humbled and proud to be the mask artist for Alex Lyon🙏🏻. It is with a pleasure we unleash Alex Lyon’s latest Flyers mask for the coming season👊🏻. The mask is the third chapter in his series of tribute masks to classic horror movies😱.... This Philly based movie was an honor to paint on a mask... It is created in a non symmetical way so when the mask turns from side to side🔄 it gives an extra scary effect... Parts of the painting is created in an unpleasant and scary style with the running orange colors🎨... The paintings on the side are painted with 3 different paint techniques, I love the challenge to mix paint techniques and create it into one unique painting. One painting is created with freehand airbrush🔫, the next with freehand sketching✍🏻, and the next with freehand brush🖌... The DaveArt 4️⃣-D Experience is also added to enhance to the storytelling on the mask📕, and also all the DaveArt Trademark Super FX✨ is unleashed. Thank you Alex, it is awesome to be your painter🙏🏻😊. #alexlyon @philadelphiaflyers @lehighvalleyphantoms @daveart @nhl #DaveArtTheCradleOfCreativity @theahl #DaveArtTheStoryteller
Designed and painted by renowned goalie mask artist David Gunnarsson, Lyon's mask will pay tribute to the M. Night Shyamalan film "The Sixth Sense" this season after honoring the movie “It” last season and "Saw" two seasons ago.

With the departure of Petr Mrazek, the goaltending situation for the Flyers seems to be in another year of flux, so it remains to be seen where Lyon will spend the bulk of his time on the ice next year. At least he will be looking good doing it.
