Winter Classic 2011 CapsCzecher - Michal Neuvirth, Washington Capitals, NHL, 2010
David about the design:
It was very exciting to create Michal Neuvirth's Winter Classic 2011 mask. Michal and I discussed some different ideas, and out came a design that goes in the same spirit as his latest Caps mask. But here we have gone with a white base all over the mask resembling snow and ice, and on this base motifs appear in light blue snow tints. On the sides the ice is broken and the Winter Classic logo appears in a cool way behind the ice and snow.. A perfect theme for a Winter Classic mask.
The rest of the design is stylish with design elements from the Winter Classic game jersey. And just like on his previous mask we have made one American side, with the powerful American eagle and other details as the Capitol, and one Czech side with the castle from Michal's hometown in the Czech Republic and mountain motif.
