PICS: JF Berube’s new mask, another beauty

Over the past few years we’ve shared numerous pics of the various masks worn by Kings prospect J.F. Berube. He’s had some truly stunning designs applied by Sylvie Marsolais – including his beautiful Kings tribute mask, featuring Luc Robitaille and Marcel Dionne (pics here).

Now, he’s set to debut his latest mask when the Manchester Monarchs travel to Norfolk for Game 3 of their opening round playoff series this Wednesday. Below are some pics of the new lid taken at the Pro’s Choice shop in Middleton, Mass., where Dom Malerba – who does work for Martin Jones, Tuukka Rask and many other NHL goalies – out together this latest version for Berube.

For his design, Berube wanted to keep many of the elements from his current design, including the palm trees on the sides, the stars (with the birthdates of his father, mother, and brother inside of them) and the banner down the center of the mask. Marsolais was able to add some 3D effects to these areas this time around though.

On the left side, Berube asked for a lion and a crown similar to the old Kings logo. Marsolais created a lion made of stone and used more 3D elements to give some depth to the design. There are also some stars in the background, but they are only visible when the light hits the mask.

On the right side, Berube wanted a ‘City of Angels’ theme.

For the back plate Berube went with something similar to his current mask, depecting the buildings of downtown Los Angeles. However, he added a new element, using the bear from the California flag. The symbol near the top left corner translates to perseverance.
