PICS: JF Berube’s new mask pays tribute to LA Kings legends

Last week we brought you exclusive photos of a new goalie mask being worked up for Kings’ prospect JF Berube.

If you thought it looked great then, check out the finished product below.

Kudos, as always, to artist Sylvie Marsolais for her amazing work.

She sent over a note saying they originally started with a sketch using some LA buildings on the sides, but eventually Berube opted to honor two fellow French-Canadians and Kings legends, Luc Robitaille and Rogie Vachon.

On the top of the mask she came up with a look that was similar to a banner, a loose play on the team’s recent Stanley Cup banner being raised.  Berube also wanted to keep some palm trees on the sides, an element she used on his current mask and something he thinks helps give it a Southern California vibe. As noted in our previous article, the birth-dates of a few family members are inside the stars – which are a take off on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

If everything goes according to plan, Berube expects to debut the mask in about two weeks.

    LOVE!

  3. Eva Marie Alonzo says:

    I maybe confused or wrong but the goalie on the mask has a #1, isn’t that Mario Lessard?

    • You’re right.

      • Yes you’re right, I don’t know why this picture appears to me when I ”google” for a Vachon picture. But Berube saw the mistake and we are now changing his number and brand name on his goalie stick to get a Vachon look. They look almost the same, that’s why I didn’t notice it.

        New picture will come tomorrow.
        Thanks for your comments about the work.
