Michal Neuvirth 2012-13 Mask

Michal Neuvirth of the Washington Capitals (born March 23, 1988 in Usti Labem, Czech Republic.)

Artist: David Gunnarsson 
The left side of the mask is a tribute to his home country Czech Republic. He also wanted to pay tribute to famous goalies, so here you find the Czech goalie legend Holecek. And just as before the Strekov Castle from his hometown and the Hradcany Prague Castle and more.
The right side is a tribute to his new home country and in particular his new hometown Washington DC. The classic goalie he wanted to pay tribute to here is the Caps legend Kolzig, and of course you also find the old school Caps logo, and much more.
The red and white check pattern on the chin is also a tribute to the Czech flag.
