NHL goalies are a great canvas for that art, what with their multitude of multicolored duds. Three years ago, Rick DiPietro of the New York Islanders rocked pink pads for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Goalie Jimmy Howard used today’s practice to debut the helmet he will wear, which will be auctioned off later to benefit local cancer organizations. Howard's helmet is highlight by a giant pink ribbon, symbol of breast cancer awareness. Howard also will wear a pink glove and blocker, but isn't sure whether he'll have time to break in pads.
Here’s a shot of more pink gear from Howard:
