Check Out Mike Condon’s Team USA Mask
Team USA goaltender Mike Condon has teamed up with Dave Gunnarsson of DaveArt to produce a new mask design for the upcoming IIHF World Championships in Russia.
“He (Condon) wanted it to be a tribute to the legendary Minutemen of Lexington,” Gunnarsson said “I loved his ideas and I started to sketch and do research how to create it”
Condon was born in Holliston, Massachusetts, a short drive from Lexington, who played a pivotal role in the American Revolutionary War.
“One side with the fighting minutemen and the other side with the legendary USS Constitution which is still in harbor in Boston,” Gunnarsson added “On the side of the ship I also created constructions drawings of the ship and cannons.”
Condon went 21-25-6 for the Montreal Canadiens this season, posting a 2.71 goals-against average and .903 save percentage.
The 26-year-old started brightly but struggled under the weight of the workload thrust upon him with franchise’s number one goaltender sidelined for much of the year.
Condon was selected along side New Jersey Devils’ goaltender Keith Kinkaid and Vancouver Canucks’ top prospect Thatcher Demko to represent the national side at the upcoming World Championships.
Team USA get their campaign underway on Friday, when they take on Team Canada at the Yubileyny Sports Palace in St. Petersburg. The tournament runs until May 22nd.
