This item comes directly from the personal collection of Hall of Fame Trainer, Ken “Doc” Fleger.
This beautiful goalie mask was created by Dom Malerba, the man behind The Pro’s Choice mask company. Felix The Cat recently finished up a 13-year NHL career that had begun with such high promise and fanfare. He was the face of the Toronto franchise throughout the decade of the 1990’s. In the 1993 playoffs, as a rookie, Potvin led the Leafs to game 7 on the semi-finals. He was a 2-time NHL All Star which followed an illustrious award winning junior career. Following 8 years with the Leafs, Potvin spent parts of 2 with the Islanders, parts of 2 with the Canucks, parts of 3 with the Kings and 1 more with the Bruins in Boston.
This beautiful hand painted creation by Dom Malerba is completely original in all respects. Dom’s trademark The Pro’s Choice stickers, his Made in America sticker and his dated signature from 1996 are inside just as they’re supposed to be. A touch of glue residue remains inside in the area of the forehead where Dom’s Velcro attachment used to lie. The backplate and the chin guard remain perfectly affixed by the original straps and snaps. As Potvin was a devoted Harrison disciple, it isn’t surprising that this mask shows no signs of use.
