Richard Bachman has a great name, especially when the media covering you is comprised primarily of middle-aged Canadian men. Any opportunity to reference Bachman-Turner Overdrive is one most of these guys will take.

But Randy isn't the only Bachman the Dallas Stars' netminder brings to mind, especially among horror fiction fans: Richard Bachman was an early pen name for Stephen King.

Bachman's new mask, painted by artist David Gunnarsson, pays tribute to his pseudonymous namesake. It's covered in iconic scenes from my favourite movie ever, The Shining.
