Toronto Marlies goaltender Garret Sparks is paying tribute to a fellow goaltender — one lost far too soon.

Sparks’ newly-designed mask features artwork dedicated to Parker Tobin, one of 16 passengers killed in the devastating crash involving the Humboldt Broncos’ team bus last month.

The artist, Sylvie Marsolais, also posted a closeup of the design earlier this month:
