Fasth pays tribute to the first Mighty Ducks goalie with his time traveler mask

Anaheim Ducks

Today we have the pleasure to present the Retro Ducks mask for Viktor #Fasth. This year Anaheim #Ducks celebrates 20 years in the #NHL, and will do that in a game with the first uniform, and for sure also a custom made mask look for Viktor Fasth :)

Viktor and me always talks a lot for every design we create together, and Viktor had such an awesome idea for this mask. He wanted to pay tribute the very first #MightyDucks goalie, Guy Hebert. It was such an awesome idea of Viktor, and we setup a plan how it could be created.

The tribute design is created as a homage to the very first Mighty Ducks mask of Guy Hebert, designed by the legendary Dennis Simone and make maker Ed Cubberly. Same layout and colors, but created with the latest effects. On a distance it is a classic old school design, and when you come closer you will discover all the details and the mask enters a new dimension with all the #DAVEART trademarks effects. Among the details you will find the Duck years, Hebert´s player number and much more.

And not only that, the mask is a time traveler. Is is created just as if it´s 20 years old, with scratches and marks and stuff all over the mask, it´s even rust coming from the screws… It´s like Viktor found this 20 years old mask in the attic and just dusted it a bit and started to play :-)

Thanks Viktor, it was such an honor for me to create this piece for you. We are already working on more masks together :-)

You are welcome to check out the mask in the mask gallery or on our Facebook page. You´ll also find a lot of behind the scene photos on our Instagram, and you´re welcome to follow us also on Twitter.

Thank you all for your interest.
