The master of mask art, Dave Gunnarsson of Daveart.com, sent along photos of Pekka Rinne’s latest, and our opinion, greatest mask based on a design by graphic design student Liz Guilyard. The mask was part of a Preds contest where fans could submit a design to be painted for Rinne and used in a game vs. the Detroit Red Wings.
What’s more, Liz, who is featured in the video below the pictures, will then get to take her game-worn mask home.
Here’s hoping Gunnarsson made a second copy because we’d love to see Rinne in this one for the remainder of the season.
This design takes Rinne’s regular “Hardcorelicious” mask to a new extreme – let us know your thought below in the comments!
