Henrik Karlsson’s 2010-2011 Calgary Flames Mask

Henrik Karlsson has come a long way in a short time. As he told inGoal Magazine recently, he only really learned how to play goal when he was 21. The 6’6″ Swede came to Calgary from San Jose for only a sixth round pick, and now finds himself Mikka Kiprusoff’s backup as the 2010-2011 season is about to get underway.

Karlsson turned to fellow Swede Dave Gunnarsson of to create his mask art again this year. He wanted Dave to create “something really violent, that would allude to flames, but also be something new.” Here you can see that Dave has achieved that, with allusions to Kipper’s flaming skulls, both Flames logos and some unique layering and depth in his design.

David is one of the founders of InGoal Magazine which he began in 2009.

Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them – though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it’ll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.

    Great, just what we need, people to think that goalies are violent metalheads.
