Yann Danis Philadelphia Flyers 2013-14 mask right sideYann Danis has a new team and another great tribute mask.

After tipping his mask to Edmonton Oilers legend Grant Fuhr last season, Danis signed with the Philadelphia Flyers in the offseason, giving personal painter  Stephane Bergeron of Griff Airbrush another chance to pay homage to a couple more goaltending greats – not to mention a city with a great history.

Bergeron chose Ron Hextall, who is back in Philadelphia as an assistant general manager, and Pelle Lindbergh for the right side of the new mask. On the left, he went away from hockey with a tribute to Rocky Balboa, including the Rocky Statue in front of the city skyline, while the chin was reserved for the Liberty Bell.

Add it all up and it’s a beautiful tribute to the city of Philadelphia and Flyers’ goaltending. For more of Bergeron’s work, be sure to visit his website and Facebook page, but first check out the close ups of the new mask for Danis:

    Lets hope he makes the club. With those great goalies on the mask he should make the club. We had him on the Island (New York Islander Country) he is one great back-up goalie. I hope he doesn’t get lost in the shuffle. No more minors its now time to stay in the majors. Good Luck Yann. Denis, Block that goal. Make that save. Maybe we will see your name on the CUP or Vesina Trophy or The Jennings Trophy.

    TOTALLY AWESOME PAINT WORK and I like who Yann Danis chose to pay tribute too.
    I find it really nice when people remember Pelle Lindbergh as he was taken from us at too early an age and I for one, used to love watching him play. Rocky is Rocky and he inspired so many people and Sylvester played the part so well. Fianlly there is Ron Hextall who was a great goalie but who used his goalie stick as a weapon far too many times. He was colorful to watch if you understand what I’m saying.
