Viktor Fasth as Mr. Bane Duck on New Anaheim Mask
Viktor Fasth has turned a lot of heads in Anaheim this season, winning his first eight NHL games as a 30-year-old rookie to earn a two-year, $5.4-million contract extension from the Ducks. His new mask is sure to turn a few more heads now.
Painted by popular Swedish artist David Gunnarsson of DaveArt, who created Fasth’s first mask back in the 1990s, the edgy new mask has added a Bane mask to the beak of the Duck on his last mask.
“With this Anaheim Ducks mask put on Viktor is transformed into a badass Duck, just as on his previous Ducks masks,” Gunnarsson wrote on his Facebook Page. “On those masks the duck used an old school mask … Now he have removed the old school mask, and put on the cruelest mask ever, the Bane mask! I wouldn’t dare to meet this scary dude a dark night, and the electrified lightnings in the background are colored in Ducks orange.”
Fasth, who won consecutive Swedish Elite League Goalie of the Year awards before coming over after and NHL bidding war last summer, has barely skipped a beat all season, pitching a shutout of Calgary Friday night to improve to 10-1-1 with a .929 save percentage this season.
