Another Killer Mask for Hiller

Ducks Off the Ice by Adam Brady
Another Killer Mask for Hiller
Jonas Hiller, who has sported an assortment of intriguing masks during his tenure with the Ducks, has struck again with a new one for this upcoming season. The PadsTracker website has revealed the new mask, designed again by the Switzerland-based company Airxess. Writes The Goalie Guild:

When it comes to the authentic artwork created by Switzerland’s Airxess for Anaheim goaltender Jonas Hiller, there’s no denying that their ideas, designs, and themes are as fresh as they come. Creating a new identity for one of the world’s finest puck-stoppers may seem like a tedious task, but when you pair him up with one of the most creative mask artists in the world, ideas flow continuously.

Since 2008, thanks to our great friendship with Airxess owner Alec Voggel, we’ve been so very fortunate to witness and promote this continuous flow of Hiller’s new ideas and identities. From the early days with his first Tornado masks, to last season’s ultra-popular “Murdered-Out” black matted and special “Movember” masks, Hiller and Airxess never fail to prove that they’re one step ahead of the goalie mask design curve.

(I don't recall the black matted one, which I happened to really like, referred to as "Murdered-Out," but we'll go with it.)

According to Voggel: “Hiller wanted to represent the Honda Center and the California surfer’s lifestyle, and on the back, his Poseidon has returned! It wasn’t on his last mask, but now it is coming out from his number-one on the backplate in a very detailed way,” Alec explained. “Of course, the black is flat for all of the fans who wanted to see Hiller wearing a flat black mask again!”

Hiller posted on his Facebook page: picked up my new Mask for 2012/13 season yesterday. Looks pretty siiiiiiiiiick!!!!!!

Here are a few looks at the new mask, and the rest can be found here.
