Chris Driedger might have to wear his new mask at all times.
The Florida Panthers goaltender provided an early glimpse of his new headgear Thursday night. It features both Baby Yoda and Din Djarin, the two primary protagonists from "The Mandalorian."
The critically acclaimed series debuted in November 2019 and is currently in its second season.
Driedger is about as inexperienced in the NHL as Baby Yoda is at life, though the 26-year-old netminder did spend parts of the last seven campaigns in the minors before excelling in limited action with the Panthers last season. He posted a .938 save percentage in 12 games for Florida in 2019-20.
Baby Yoda has become a viral star since the show first aired, and while Driedger might not match the beloved infant's mainstream appeal, this is the way to become a fan favorite.
