Henrik Lundqvist’s Winter Classic Mask

Henrik Lundqvist’s Winter Classic Mask

[wpfblike]
Dave Gunnarsson has long been Henrik Lundqvist’s personal artist, creating some of the most impressive masks in the NHL for the Rangers’ star. Gunnarsson has created a new Winter Classic themed helmet for Lundqvist to wear on January 2 vs. the Philadelphia Flyers. As always, the design  more strongly reflects the team, than their star goaltender, something that is old-school itself, although it includes the 30 inside a crown logo Gunnarsson uses on all his masks for Lundqvist, this time on the chin. The design is thoroughly modern but done in a way to appear like it is an old helmet. If you look closely you’ll even see he has painted on rust around the screws holding the cage on, and there are puck marks and scrapes on the design – all signs of aging, sealed inside a clear coat to protect them.

About The Author

David is one of the Managing Partners for inGoal Magazine. 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 it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu.

  1. I like the idea and detail of the rust spots and scratches, not something you see too often if ever. Great overall look for sure

  6. Its a beautifully painted mask for sure- but I would like to have seen the artist break the mold a little and do something as a bit of a departure from his normal style. I’m a big admirer of the art of mask painters and Daveart have taken it to another level with their masks- but for me- to create a mask for the Winter Classic is so rare it would have been the opportunity to really break away from his normal style- just my humble opinion.

  10. I think that it’s a design that seems simple, but it does have lots of detail hidden in it which I love so overall an awesome mask.

  11. Rather boring and Plain Looking. For a team and city that is rich with history. What can I say “Then it fits him.”
