After that footage of Marty Biron being mercilessly heckled by Pittsburgh Penguins fans, the Philadelphia Flyers goalie might want to consider some extra muscle on the road next season.
If only he could call upon the protection of a burly French-Canadian lumberjack named The Great Gaston ... who also happens to be Biron's cartoon alter-ego, featured on his mask. Seriously:
Goalies. Are. Fracking. Strange.
My mask was kind of a funny idea. We had a few ideas thrown together with the artist. We talked about it. My one brother-in-law always made fun of my middle name, which is Gaston. It's my godfather's name, but he always made fun of it. So he said, we should come up with The Great Gaston.
We kind of talked about it with the artist and he came up a lumberjack that's totally the opposite me. He's a big bearded guy with the big muscles and looks terrifying, where I'm totally the opposite of that.
After watching him in the Stanley Cup playoffs, we refuse to believe Biron is the opposite of any of this.
