LINCOLN MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENT DESIGNS GOALIE MASK

By: Nate Haeni
Rockford, Ill. – When Rockford IceHogs goaltender Alexander Salak returns to the ice after recovering from an injury, he will be sporting a new goalie mask thanks to Gregory Roskowic.

The IceHogs held a contest for the art classes at Lincoln Middle School to design a mask for Salak to wear for the remainder of the 2011-12 season. The teachers and staff at Lincoln narrowed all the submissions down to 10 finalists. After reviewing the finalists, Salak selected Roskowic’s design as the winner. With the winning design, Roskowic’s name is featured on the back of the helmet. 

Salak visited with the students at Lincoln in November to go over some items of interest that they could include on the mask, but left the overall design in the hands of the students and their creativity.

Beginning in February, the IceHogs will sell raffle tickets for the mask at every IceHogs home game. The tickets are $5 each or five for $20. A portion of the proceeds from the raffle will benefit the Sydney Ives Foundation.

Sydney Ives was made an honorary IceHogs team member on May 20, 2009. Ives was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor the year prior. She passed away on Nov. 7, 2009 and the foundation is in her memory. For more information about the Sydney Ives Foundation or to donate, visit sydneyives.com

Next Home Game: Saturday, Jan. 28 vs. Milwaukee Admirals: The puck drops at 7:05 p.m. Rockford and Milwaukee meet up once again at the BMO Harris Bank Center for the IceHogs Annual Pink in the Rink Night. The ice will be pink and the IceHogs will be wearing special pink jerseys that will be auctioned off to benefit breast cancer research and awareness.
