On August 19th Tyler Bunz tweeted that his mask had disappeared while en route to Edmonton via Air Canada — “Helmet was stolen from my bag flying Air Canada from Kelowna to Edmonton, if anyone knows anything or sees it online please let me know.” Since he is still waiting for his new season’s mask, this presented a huge problem for the goaltender who was heading into training camp. However, yesterday Bunz tweeted that “Mask has turned up.. All good .”

At the beginning of last season I started a series on the OKC Barons goaltender masks while all the goaltenders were in OKC for training camp — Tyler Bunz, Olivier Roy, Yann Danis and Niko Hovinen. I photographed the goalies in their helmets, asked questions about their masks, and then photographed closeups of the mask designs. Here are the photographs and link to the article on Tyler Bunz’s Mask which has thankfully reappeared!
