About the Author

Jim Hynes is a writer and editor who has written about subjects ranging from the history of Montreal to the history of Canada’s oldest golf clubs. A lifelong hockey fan, he has played the game for more than thirty-five years—but not once in net. He lives in Ithaca, New York.

Gary Smith grew up playing hockey in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and made his first mask when he was 14 years old. Hockey eventually took him to the East Coast where he was recruited to play golf for St. Thomas University in Fredericton, New Brunswick. Gary lives in Grand Falls, New Brunswick, where he is a school vice principal and continues to make and collect goalie masks.
