Goalie Mask, Pat Tillman
Tillman tribute part of LaBarbera's new mask - NHL.com - NHL Insider
"I wanted to make sure that all troops knew how much we respect and appreciate their sacrifices to protect our way of life," LaBarbera said. "Pat's story is well-known around the country and the world, but it's so important here in Arizona were the people see him as their own. He is a part of Arizona sports history and our nation's history and I wanted to show that.
"You walk by the Arizona Cardinals stadium (just across the street from Jobing.com Arena, home of the Coyotes) and you see the statue and it really impacts you what Pat Tillman did and the decision he made. Here's a guy who gave up a very lucrative profession, something he loved and did all his life, to do what he thought was right. Not a lot of people can say that."
