Eddie Lack Reveals New Swedish Chef Mask

Eddie Lack Reveals New Swedish Chef Mask

Lack with MaskEddie Lack’s new look is complete! After revealing a sleek set of Hurricanes themed pads in July, the 27-year old now has an awesome new mask to hit the ice with.

Working with David Gunnarsson of DaveArt, Lack’s new design features not only the Hurricanes’ logos, but the Swedish Chef from The Muppets!

“Eddie likes food, and especially tacos!” Gunnarsson wrote on his Facebook page. “So the Swedish Chef has always showed up on the back of his masks. This time the Swedish Chef shows up on the mask itself! Ready to fix some tacos for Eddie! … And on the backplate of the mask’ another buddy of Eddie’s shows up”

The backplate caricature of former Canucks team mate Roberto Luongo is unlikely to come as a surprise to fan, as the pair have maintained a close friendship since the Team Canada netminder was traded to Florida in 2014. It doesn’t show up in the photo below, but in this video forwarded to InGoal by Lack, you see his father is also on the backplate:

A fan favourite in Vancouver, Lack was traded to Carolina at the NHL Draft this summer after two seasons with the Canucks in which he went 34-30-9 with a .917 save percentage and 2.43 goals against average.

An unrestricted free agent at the end of this season, Lack is expected to compete with incumbent Cam Ward, also a pending UFA, for the starting role in Carolina as the club looks to recover from a disastrous season that saw the franchise sink to the bottom of the Metropolitan Division.

This simple yet brilliant new mask is sure to make him as popular with Hurricanes fans as he was in British Columbia.

You can find more of Gunnarsson’s great artwork on his website, Twitter feed, and Instagram account. Meanwhile, check out these awesome close ups of Lack’s brilliant new mask:

Lots of love for Jac



Lots of love for Jacob Markstrom’s beautiful new Bauer Vapor 1X custom graphics, but did you know he wasn’t really the first to wear it? When we talked to him around Christmas about the custom design we knew was coming, he said it was already on the pads worn by fellow Swede Filip Gustavsson at the World Junior Hockey championships. Look closely at the background graphic of Gustavsson’s pads (scroll through) and other than eliminating the solid block on the top corners, looks like he was right. Still gorgeous though. #InGoalisInTheRoom
