So imagine you’re Henrik Sedin. You’re behind the net Thursday night against the Coyotes on goaltender Mike Smith. You want to make a play … but gaaaaaah. This is staring you in the face:

Yup, that’s Coyotes super fan Alice Cooper, who is part of Smith’s Coyotes retro night garb. The game will be played in Glendale, not Milwaukee (for those Wayne’s World fans).

That’s probably the best part of the mask, which is old school Phoenix Coyote to incredible detail. Here are some other photos that harken back to the Coyotes’ first several years in the desert. Here are some more photos:

Here is Smith talking about the mask. We can also see it in action during a practice:

It’s honestly a very cool looking mask, probably one of the best we’ve seen this year just from a creativity and detail perspective. Good job all around from Smith, and mask designer David Arrigo.
