Petr Mrazek honors past Czech Maple Leafs players with second mask reveal

This is the second mask that the new Leafs net minder has revealed.


New Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Petr Mrazek has enjoyed a successful NHL career that's spanned nearly 300 games with three different franchises, and he's the newest figure in the crease in one of the NHL's most scrutinized and media-heavy markets. 

He resurrected his career as a member of the Carolina Hurricanes, helping them to their first playoff series win in a decade in 2019 and earning a position of a fan favorite. And now, he's ready for a new challenge as a member of the Leafs, having agreed to a three year contract in the offseason that will see him earn $11.4 million.

He's already released his first debut mask, courtesy of artist extraordinaire Dave Gunnarsson of DaveArt. He's since released a second mask, one that pays tribute to the late Miroslav Fryčer as well as goaltender Jiří Crha, both of whom hailed from Mrazek's homeland of the Czech Republic: 

Fryčer played seven season for the Maple Leafs in the 1980's, and also suited up for the Quebec Nordiques, Detroit Red Wings and Edmonton Oilers over the course of his career. He passed away this past April at the age of 61. 

Meanwhile, Crha played two season for Toronto from 1979 to 1981, while also representing his homeland in the 1976 Winter Olympics. 

Last year with Carolina, Mrazek posted a record of a 6-2-3 record with three shutouts, a 2.06 goals against average and a .911 save percentage. In 275 career regular season games with the Detroit Red Wings, Philadelphia Flyers and Hurricanes, Mrazek sports a 128-96-31 record with a 2.59 goals against average, a .911 save percentage and 24 shutouts.
