San Jose Sharks (1991-93)

While Hayward was in net for the Sharks when they won their first ever NHL regular season game, he is far better known for his mask (another Armadilla design by Straus), looking as though he is peering out from the jaws of a great white. This mask began the trend of having a creature on the mask appearing to devour the person inside of it. To quote Robert Shaw from Jaws, "This shark, swallow you whole."
