To help perform a Herculean task,he wears a helmet and protective mask.
Team owners provide substantial payfor him to stop pucks coming his way.
His reflexes must be strong and quick,as he guards his net with gloves and stick.
Just imagine how much skill it takesto do all this while wearing skates.
He learns early to live with pain,and to lose teeth now and again.
He hopes before his career is up,he may compete for the Stanley Cup.
