Check Out Anton Khudobin’s New Ducks Mask
Anaheim’s Anton Khudobin has teamed up with Sylvie Marsolais of SylaBrush to produce a sleek new mask design.
“For this one, Dobby’s wanted something different,” Marsolais told InGoal “So we went with something with a meaner look, with more black.”
“We kept the kind of honeycomb and the Dobby on the chin from his last mask. We incorporated the the big ‘D’ logos outline on both side of the mask, inside of them you can see some palm trees, and another Ducks logo.”
The black background certainly help the extra details stand out on Khudobin’s new mask, with the backplate carrying the same Russian eagle/phoenix as the former Carolina and Boston goaltender’s previous masks, as well as the name of friend Igor Korolev, who died in the Lokomotiv Yaroslavl plane crash.
Khudobin, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer, was recently recalled after John Gibson picked up an injury. The 29-year old backed up Frederik Andersen during Gibsons’ absence but was reassigned to the Ducks AHL affiliate in San Diego last night.

The Kazakhstan native arrived in Anaheim after being acquired from Carolina during the summer. Khudobin made eight appearances during the organisation’s stuttering start to the season, going 3-3-0 with a .908 save percentage and 2.70 goals-against average. He has not played for the club since giving up two goals on five shots against Calgary on November 24th.
