Sabres’ Lehner pays tribute to Hasek with Winter Classic mask

Dec 21, 2017

Buffalo Sabres goaltender Robin Lehner is paying tribute to an all-time great with the new mask he’ll be wearing during the upcoming Winter Classic.

The new mask features Dominik Hasek’s No. 39 and a photo of him making one of his signature flop saves.

Hasek tended the net for the Sabres for nine seasons, winning six Vezina and two Hart Trophies, while leading Buffalo to its only appearance in the Stanley Cup Final.

The mask is much more modern than the one Lehner was skating around with before practice on Thursday.

The first one looks a little bit safer.

The latest edition of the Winter Classic takes place Jan. 1 at Citi Field in New York featuring the Sabres and Rangers.
