Maybe Alex Lyon is trying to scare his opponents?
Who knows, but he loves himself a terrifying goalie mask.
We've seen it before with his movie-themed masks: "The Sixth Sense," "It" and "Saw."
This time, he's going with Gritty.

The Flyers' mascot truly is a hit, especially with the goalies.
Lyon's mask is the fourth Gritty-centric helmet this season.
Anthony Stolarz, Mike McKenna and Calvin Pickard all got in on the fun.
Top shelf work on the new #LetsGoFlyers lid from @BishopDesigns and @warwickmask as always! Can't wait to open the box tomorrow. Hope @GrittyNHL approves of my own mascot wearing a Gritty mask! pic.twitter.com/XqP5kYloAC— Mike McKenna (@MikeMcKenna56) January 15, 2019
Not only will Lyon look scary in net, but he's also playing well.
In 26 games with the Phantoms, the 26-year-old has put up career bests in goals-against average (2.50) and save percentage (.921).
Lehigh Valley is fighting for an AHL playoff spot. Flyers fans will want to check out the prospects in Allentown … and to see that Gritty mask, of course.
