Sergei Bobrovsky 2011-12 Mask

Sergei Bobrovsky of the Philadelphia Flyers (born Sept. 20, 1988 in Novokuznetsk, Russia.)

For Bobrovsky's Winter Classic Mask, click here.

Artist David Gunnarsson introduced a new mask for Bobrovsky right before the playoffs.

In Sergei´s hometown in Russia, Novokuznetsk, they built the classic Russian super Tank T-34. Sergei wanted to pay tribute to the fantastic machine, that played a big role for Russia in the WW2. Such a unique and great idea.

It is a mix of details, landscape designs with the tanks and you also find the Russian fighter planes Polikarpov I-16 in the sky, and when you come closer you will see how the chin of the mask transforms into a close up of a real Tank with the sheet metal.

Below is the first mask he wore this season.
Artist David Gunnarsson introduced Bobrovsky's new mask on 10/21/11: find a Russian and a US fighter jet. They are flying side by side and burst through the orange brickwall. And just as usual extreme detail work, in the background you see buildings from both Kreml and from Sergei's hometown.

 The photos below were before his new mask was complete.
