The Vancouver Canucks will be taking on the Detroit Red Wings on March 16 dressed in the old Vancouver Millionaires uniforms, and here is Cory Schneider’s Millionaires mask. We’re guessing he’ll be starting that night.
The new mask has the same colors as the jersey including the big V logo on the top of the mask.
Artist Dave Gunnarsson had this to say about his latest mask:
On a distance it’s an old school classic styled design with the stripes in focus with the beautiful logo on the top, all created in maroon and cream colors.
Then the closer you come the more details you will discover, and the design transforms in front of your eyes to a tribute to the fantastic Millionaires team. On the left side is a tribute to the legendary Millionaire goalie Hughie Lehman, and on the other side is the whole team in old school vintage style.
And not only that, the mask is also a tribute to the fantastic native art of Canada. I just love that art style. Just as on Cory’s previous Canucks mask I incorporated orcas in Canadian native art style, and they continue on this mask.
