Henrik Lundqvist opts for chrome-based lid for Winter Classic design

Henrik Lundqvist is a creature of habit. His mask has carried a handful of similar themes and elements through the years, with a Statue of Liberty-inspired crown and a blue cage on the majority of his designs dating back over the last decade. For the Winter Classic, though, the King himself will debut a totally new concept – and it’s pretty excellent for a snowy, frozen mask debut: #Repost @hank30nyr ・・・ For a few years I've been going with the blue base and blue cage. @daveart told me about the new technology he uses for chrome, thats the new...

Ondrej Pavelec goes clean and classic for WC outdoor mask

This year’s Winter Classic promises to be cold and cloudy, with a forecast only projected to top out at 14 degrees F (-10 C). While Ondrej Pavelec isn’t expected to get much ice time, though – we likely won’t see his mask for anything but warm-ups – he’s bringing arguably one of the best lids we’ve seen this year with him to the outdoor game, where it will join him on the bench in case Henrik Lundqvist needs some help. Pavelec’s first mask with the Rangers was crisp, clean, and retro, with classic New York City street signs used...

Pickard given first official NHL start of 2017-18 season against old team

Calvin Pickard held one of the hardest jobs in the NHL last season. After two solid seasons of appearances at the NHL level for the Colorado Avalanche, he was promoted to backup in what was supposed to be an optimistic turn of events at the start of his 2016-17 campaign. Instead, he took over as full-time starter less than halfway through the season, shouldering a shockingly large percentage of the workload down the back stretch. He finished his first full season in the NHL with 50 games, most of which were played consecutively when the Avalanche shut down veteran...

Dallas Stars prospect Desrosiers gets new ‘invisible ink’ Batman mask

The technology available today to really add unique twists to mask artwork is absolutely incredible. No two ways around it – the magical paint effects that artists can use on mask designs is absolutely amazing to look at. We’ve seen neon masks and glow-in-the-dark masks, color-changing masks with temperature-sensitive paint and holographic images. Now, Swedish mask artist Dave Gunnarsson has introduced invisible ink. His latest mask reveal is for Dallas Stars prospect Philippe Desrosiers, who is currently thriving with the ECHL’s Idaho Steelheads. The mask is a black-and-white, sketch-inspired Batman design, gritty and raw and everything a comic lover...

Scary close call for



Scary close call for Winnipeg Jets Connor Hellebuyck as teammate’s stick blade got through his cage + cut him near eye; interestingly amid the debate about cat-eye cages, which are banned in Canada, the blade actually appears to go in under the lower bar of the cat-eye opening. Frankly it’s hard to see why that gap, which does nothing to help vision, needs to be big enough for a blade to get through, as unlikely as this incident might be.
