James Reimer's face mask

Like many goalies James Reimer has some interesting features on his mask.

On one side you see children playing hockey on a pond, and in the background you see a house with light in the windows, mother and father are waiting for the children to come in from the cold. The other side is a tribute to Reimer's favorite TV show Hockey Night. It shows Cherry and MacLean in blue tints in a layout on the side with glistening stars around.

The right side of the maks's backplate is more spiritual. There is a bible passage referenced above the image of Jesus and Peter – “Matt 14:31″ – Matthew 14:31 reads: “Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”

The slogan on the left side of his mask’s backplate is: “Obstacles are things you see when you lose sight of the goal.” In addition the mask has a yellow heart with the words “Ramona’s courage” in honor of his cousin’s wife who died of cancer more than a year ago.
