Brodeur Devils Mask 2011-2012

Artist Sylvie Poitras has been looking after Martin Brodeur’s artwork for years now from his standard Devils’ design to the retro look he brought out for a game last year and even his Olympic mask. It wasn’t long ago that Brodeur switched from the classic Devils’ logo on the forehead to his personal “MB30″ logo – as the latest in a line of star athletes trying to establish a personal brand.

This year fans of the old look will be happy to see the classic logo return in what from a distance will look like a return to his pre-2008 design but Poitras has taken it a bit further. As with other artists today – take Daveart’s striking Montreal mask for Alex Auld last season – a bold classic design seen easily from the stands can have additional layers of design that give those lucky enough to see the mask up close something to appreciate. The depth in this case is the MB30 logo which can be found in 30 (of course!) places on the mask.

  1. Mark says:

    It’s plain. But that is not a bad thing for Brodeur, who may be entering his last season.

  2. Julio says:

    I like the classic look. Ever since he went with the MB30 self promoting mask his game took a nosedive!

  3. geoff king says:

    hay if he ever gets tired of the mask he can send it to me ill give it a careing home in the scottish recreational conferance,

  4. The last of the truly classic goalie mask designs. More guys should be turning to something like this. It’s a shame with all these brutal masks being commissioned these days. A lot of them wouldn’t be respected if you wore them for a Bantam team.
