John Vanbiesbrouck Game Ready Mask - New York Islanders
Part of HockeyArt's Game Used Mask Collection
This John Vanbiesbrouck mask was created before the start of the 2000-01 Season by Don Straus. Straus had to create this mask in order to get approval from the team before making Vanbiesbrouck's glitter effect New York Islanders mask. The team wanted to see his idea before allowing the mask. While not worn by John, it features a great simple paint job and served as a back up mask during the season.
