PHOTO: Thomas McCollum's Winter Festival mask features Chris Farley
Grand Rapids Griffins goalie Thomas McCollum will have a unique image on the back plate of his goalie mask: Chris Farley as Tommy Boy.
The build up to the Winter Classic this year will feature a massive Winter Festival taking place at Comerica Park with multiple outdoor games. That means even more specialty equipment for the event. We’ve already seen Grand Rapids Griffins goaltender Petr Mrazek’s snowman pads, now we have Thomas McCollum’s tribute to Chris Farley.
On the backplate of McCollum’s Grand Rapids mask, he prominently features the late actor as the title character from the 1990s comedy classic Tommy Boy. The rest is pretty standard specialty logos for the special occasion, with images commemorating Grand Rapids’ Calder Cup title from last season.
