Bernier´s Winter Classic mask pays tribute to pond hockey

Toronto Maple Leafs

Today we have the pleasure to present Toronto Maple Leafs keeper Jonathan Bernier´s custom made #NHL mask for the Winter Classic 2014 game.

The design is a tribute to the origin of true hockey, kids playing hockey on a pond. Golden memories from our childhood. When Jonathan told me his wishes for his design I immediately came up with a plan how to create it.

Kids are playing on the pond with their friends and in the goal is a parent, and lots and lots of details in the background creates a nice depth to the design.

It was so exciting to create this piece for you Jonathan! Love to be your personal artist. We have been working together for many years and I am looking forward to create many more masks with you :)

Just as usual the #DAVEART design is fully loaded with extreme detail work and stories to tell. Just as usual in a true #Bernier design it is a lion in the design, here it is holding the #WinterClassic shield.

The rest of the design is created in total sync with #Toronto #MapleLeafs awesome Winter Classic uniform.

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.
