WWII Planes on New Hutchinson Jets Mask
After spending his first three professional seasons with the Boston Bruins, goalie Michael Hutchinson finally got a chance to try something different on his mask after signing with the Winnipeg Jets this summer.
The 23-year-old lefty from Ontario knew exactly what he wanted from Montreal artist David Leroux of Diel Airbrush.
“He really wanted something bold and easy to see from far away, but when you get closer to the mask you start seeing small details,” Leroux told InGoal. “And he wanted to have some vintage World War II planes flying around the mask.”
As you will see in the photos below, Hutchinson’s new Jets mask is both striking and easily identifiable from a distance, including a great use of the logo on the top of the mask. But get closer and you see the small planes woven into the design.
Enjoy the close ups below, including a backplate with a luck-catching horseshoe (hey, every goalie needs help from time to time), and to see more great work from artist David Leroux please visit his Diel Aribrush web site and his Facebook page:
