"A biopic tracing the brutal life and extraordinary career of goaltender Terry Sawchuk is hitting the big screen in March.

"Goalie" stars Mark O'Brien as the Winnipeg-born hockey great, whose run through the '50s and '60s established him as one of the winningest goaltenders in the National Hockey League's history." (CBC.ca)

“This face belongs to Terry Sawchuk, a 36-year-old goalie for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Re-created here, by a professional make-up artist and a doctor, are some of the more than 400 stitches he had earned during 16 years in the National Hockey League. Terry Sawchuk’s face was bashed over and over, but not all at one time. His wounds healed. The scars weren’t easily seen – except for a few of them. The re-creation of his injuries was done to help show the extent of his injuries over a span of years.”
