Who designed the 2008 hockey goalie mask?

Technically every NHL goalie designs his own to best fit his need for comfort, visibility, and style. That's why you see some goalies like Dominik Hasek who have very unique goalie masks. The outside design of the goalie mask is purely aesthetic and is often times picked specifically depending upon the match being played. Important dates in team history may effect the outside design of the mask/helmet but some goalies just like their helmet to be flashy and have an artistic design on the outside.

As this occured the blood pressure slowed down causing his heart to beat very fast in order to recover for the blood being lost.

When did goalies in hockey start to wear masks?

The first goalie mask worn full time was in 1959 by Jacque Plante in the NHL. It was a homemade fiberglass mask similar to the one worn by the character Jason Vorhees in the movie series Friday the 13th. Other masks had been used for a short time on and off before then but were usually masks from other sports, such as the fencing mask Elizabeth Graham used in 1927. In the 1970s the goalie mask changed into a cage/helmet combination which is still used by some lower level goalies (high school, college, recreational, etc) and has evolved into the fiberglass or Kevlar masks with a built in cage used by most goalies today in the NHL.
