Philadelphia Flyers goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov is a man who loves space, in case you haven't gotten that message already. He thinks about the universe, he dressed up as a cosmonaut and he ponders meteors that come crashing down in his home country.
He loves space so much, in fact, that he got a new mask that features ... Star Wars.



Posted ImageIs Bryz going to the dark side? (@NHLFlyers)




HOW. AWESOME. IS. THAT!?
Star Wars geeks (and I say that fondly as I consider myself to be one, albeit mildly), if you don't have a new favorite player then I don't know what to tell you.
What about the other side? Maybe he has a Jedi-like Luke Skywalker to help balance out the good and dark side of the force. Just no Jar-Jar, for the love of George Lucas, please no Jar-Jar.
Nope, no Jar-Jar or Luke. Instead, it's Yoda and R2D2.


Posted ImageAlso the good side -- Yoda and R2D2 are on the mask as well. (@NHLFlyers)



That works out perfectly anyway since Bryzgalov sometimes talks like Yoda. And good choice to go with R2 over C3P0. He rocks.
Bryz, you're the best. Don't ever change.
With this in mind, what should be Bryzgalov's new theme song: The Imperial March or Cantina Band? The latter just sounds so much more Bryz.

haha love the star wars theme looks great :lol:

AWESOME. I think Bryz and Hartsy should have their own show about things relating to the universe and how to beak Phaneuf.

But I noticed that Yoda has a red light saber, only the Sith have ready light sabers.

Thanks man for making me laugh. Your statement is completely true, but I for one think red light sabers look way cooler then the green or blue. Its just hard to be intimidated by a giant glowing freezie.

He'll need the force to help him keep pucks out of the net.

Am I right, guys? High five, up high!

Yup, Star Wars fanboys are freaking out right now.

It's nice artwork and I like Star Wars, but nothing amazing.

Not even an Ewok.

I'm sure the lightsabre is only red so it goes with Flyers' colours. Anyway, I wonder if he had to pay any sort of fee to Lucasfilm or Disney *shudder* to be able to use those trademarked characters on his mask.

Yoda had just picked up the light sabre of a recently vanquished Sith Lord after having lost his in a previous battle.

That makes sense.  :)Having the wrong wrong colour doesn't upset me, I just thought it was funny.  Maybe Yoda turned to the dark side for a little while...maybe just to experiment...not that there's anything wrong with that....

I know he loves to give shooters lots of "space" to shoot the puck into the net.

The vastness of space is almost as big as his 5-hole.

I almost wish I was a goalie just so I could wear a badass mask.

Then I remember I have to use my body to stop high velocity frozen projectiles and the success of my entire team rests on my performance and I remember I'm too much of a wimp.
