Goalie mask designer Dave Gunnarsson has done it again. The man behind the Capitals goalie masks , including Braden Holtby and Philipp Grubauer, also creates beautiful art for Capitals goaltenders who have yet to be between the pipes on the big club in DC. Gunnarsson recently released his design for Hershey Bears goaltender Vitek Vanecek. 

This latest mask is in “Eclipse” style with a blue face, stars and stripes at the top and the face of the Capitals’ weagle on the sides. The full weagle is on the chin area. Below is a full detail of what the mask looks like.

Vanecek started the season with an injury and is still on a quest for his first win of the season. He’s only appeared in one game for the chocolate and white so far this season. The Bears are back in action on Saturday night in Hartford against the Wolfpack. Puck drop is at 7 p.m.
