Check Out Robert Mayer’s Geneve-Servette Eagle Mask
Czech-born Swiss goalie Robert Mayer has partnered with Sylvie Marsolais of Sylabrush to create a gorgeous new mask that pays tribute to both the city of Geneva and the Geneve-Servette HC club.
It is a reinterpretation of a look he has used in the past, carrying some of the same themes and motifs updated for the new season. As Marsolais told InGoal:
Robert wanted something similar to the last paint job we did on Anton Khudobin’s Ducks mask. His ideas was to put ”Servette” on the chin and keep the eagles he had on his last mask but wanted them to be more aggressive. So we came up with this design and at first view of the sketch he said ”I absolutely love it!”. Our first part of the job was done, now it was time to paint it on his CCM mask!
The mask carries the team colors and each side also contains a depiction of an eagle in flight over a mountain hillside, tying the mask to Switzerland’s forest and mountain landscape.
On the backplate Marsolais has continued Mayer’s usual watch motif to play homage to the long tradition of watchmaking in Geneva. The watch is also a tribute to Mayer’s son Luca, indicating the date and time of his birth.
Mayer spent five seasons with the Hamilton Bulldogs of the AHL before joining Geneve-Servette in 2014, and he won a Spengler Cup with the club that year. He posted a .922 in 46 games with them last season.
