Cristobal Huet’s Vintage Mask Tribute to Esposito and Bannerman

UPDATE: There’s a great story about Stephane in the Montreal Gazette, worth checking out.

Artist Stephane Bergeron of LaGriffe Originale recently sent me an image of his latest mask for Cristobal Huet. It’s a vintage style design that pays tribute to two of the most famous Blackhawk masks of the past – Tony Esposito and Murray Bannerman.

This mask is slated to be worn for one game only and then auctioned off – we haven’t heard yet for what purpose – if you have please let us know in the comments below. Looks like this one is also an Eddy Mask which reader Jason Power heard from Cristobal himself is a return to the brand he used in Europe.

Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.

    This item now resides in my collection.
    It was worn for 2 games, March 2nd vs Islanders and in warm up March 13th 2010.
    A rare find for Blackhawks and Mask collectors.
