First Look at Braden Holtby’s New Mask (Photos)


Via the Washington Capitals Instagram, here’s Braden Holtby‘s new mask.

Designed by Swedish artist-to-the-stars, Dave Gunnarsson, Holtby’s mask features a sign on its side reading, “Please do not feed the animal.”

Not sure if that refers to the eagle with the crazy eyes or the actual guy wearing the mask.


2:05PM Update: The Caps (who are totally stepping on our beat) have posted more photos.

    Great work. Continuation of the “cage” onto the mask seems like an obvious design element, but it’s the first time I’ve seen it done. Very slick. The only detail I would change is to leave the lock hanging open, cause….you know.
