Franny Drummond of Drummond Custom Airbrush, the paint shop that does most of the Flyers’ goalie masks, showed off his working design of Ilya Bryzgalov’s Winter Classic mask to PhiladelphiaFlyers.com.
Bryz told Drummond to feature “Eagles, Flyers, Sixers, Phillies,” and to “go with” whatever he came up with. Which was a spectacular design.
The mask features Mike Schmidt, Reggie White, Julius Erving, Veterans Stadium, an “HK” patch, the Phanatic (who needed to be explained to Bryz), and will soon be finished up with Bobby Clarke, Joe Frazier and Gene Hart’s “Good Night and Good Hockey” tagline.
Here’s another pic:
The video, courtesy of the Flyers, is after the jump. We’ll have some exclusive pictures of the finished product on Friday.
Drummond is also painting an old school mask for Bernie Parent, who will both a new version and his original at the Alumni Game. That video is after the jump, as well.
