Thomas Greiss still has goal to start in goal full time

Even with a limited body of work for goalie Thomas Greiss this season, the Coyotes had enough confidence in him as a backup by the Olympic break that General Manager Don Maloney approached Greiss' agent during the league hiatus to discuss a contract extension. Obviously, a deal wasn't accomplished, and one of the sticking points in the negotiation was Greiss' disappointment...

Greiss leads Coyotes to shutout win over punchless Flames

Sluggish in the first period, Phoenix scored its first two goals on fortunate bounces in the second. Once the Coyotes got rolling, there was no stopping them, particularly the way Thomas Greiss was turning away shots. Greiss stopped 27 shots, Lauri Korpikoski had a goal and two assists, and the Coyotes rolled to a 6-0 victory over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night. ''...

Coyotes netminder Thomas Greiss’ mask requires an exorcism (photo)

Egad, usually around here we throw around the term “nightmare fuel” pretty loosely, but in this instance, after gazing upon the hellish imagery featured on Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Thomas Greiss’ mask and being chilled to the bone by by it, the nightmare fuel designation is the most fitting description for it.

Coyotes goalie Thomas Greiss has freaky demonic creature on mask

Phoenix Coyotes goalie Thomas Greiss has officially won the award for the creepiest goalie mask in the NHL.  I’m not sure the reasoning behind having this demonic creature on his mask, but if the purpose is to scare opponents, Greiss was successful. [Deadspin]

San Jose goalie's new mask is horrifying

This is the new headgear for Sharks goalie Thomas Greiss. I have no clue what in the world that demon creature is supposed to be. Is it a zombie? Is it a werewolf? Is it a zombie werewolf? Maybe Ryane Clowe having a bad day? All I do know is my pants are now a little more damp than they were. [photo via @kkurzcsn]
