Vancouver Canucks' Roberto Luongo to debut new goalie mask

<halloween h2o maskp>Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo is hoping the bring back some of that luck from the Cup Final run a couple of years with a new mask the is reminiscent of an old mask.

In a video released on the Canucks website, the team's number one goalie shows off the new lid, featuring the design from the Canucks shoulder patch.

"I prefer simpler masks," Luongo said. "I wanted to go back with the Johnny Canuck theme that I had from a few years ago and hopefully it carries over a bit of that luck that we went to the Cup Finals."

Luongo said a plainer mask is easier for all the fans to see what's going on, and that's what he was going for.

Canucks' fans will be hoping for an uncharacteristically strong start from the notoriously slow starter who regained his number one job when Vancouver dealt Cory Schneider to New Jersey for a first round draft pick this summer, ending the ugly goaltending controversy that had enveloped the team.

The Canucks start the season Thursday night in San Jose.
