Emery A Fighter

from the Ottawa Sun,
Senators rookie Ray Emery considers himself to be a fighter. He’s had to fight his way — at times literally — to an NHL job and, now in his first full season with the Senators, he’s had to fight to be taken seriously as the goaltender who can back Ottawa in its quest for a first Stanley Cup. It’s a good thing then that he likes a good fight so much that he has his mask decorated with the images of boxing legends.
continued from the CBC (Februay 2006),
Emery stirred up some bad press when he wore a Mike Tyson goalie mask in a 5-0 home loss to Boston on Monday night, so much so that he won't be wearing the protective artwork again. "We didn't ask him not to wear the mask," Senators general manager John Muckler said Tuesday. "We just had a discussion about what was right and what was wrong. He said he would take it off."
