The Color Scheme Isn’t Avalanche Related

There are really no colors on this mask that are representative of the Colorado Avalanche.

Sure, he has the yeti foot, and variations of red and blue, but none of those variations are burgundy, or the blue that has long been an Avs color.

For a view of the side — again symmetrical — there is this photo:

Those are basically gargoyle/dragon things if I’m not mistaken. And, they’re bright red.

I couldn’t find a description of the mask on the Internet, but “LX” has got to be roman numerals, right? That’s the number 60, and queue the questions why? Perhaps someone has an answer for me?

Anyway, The black and white mixed with bright red gargoyles just makes this mask unrelated to the Colorado Avalanche. The yeti foot is always welcome, but other than that the mask could certainly be done better.

Let’s move on to the next player on this list.

From here on out the masks get more intricate, goalies incorporate more masks throughout their careers with the Avalanche, and it gets harder to rank the goalies, so bare with me — soooo many images.
