By Ralph Morse. Once upon a time, NHL goalies played without masks. In this face belonged to Terry Sawchuk, a goalie for the Toronto Maple Leafs. The scars, tho representative of real ones, were applied by a makeup artist.
He flew as a nose gunner on a bomber in the Air Force in Italy during WW II. He made 51 combat missions, crash landed twice and was credited with shooting down two fighters. Charlie survived the war without a scratch.
