Jonas Gustavsson “Monster Rocker” Leafs Mask

Toronto Goaltender has refined his Monster Leaf design for 2011-2012

Toronto Maple Leaf Goalie Jonas Gustavsson, like so many NHL goalies, has found a look he like on his helmet and asked his artist Dave Gunarsson of Daveart.com to refine it for the new season.

Gaunnarson writes, on the refined design:

“…when Jonas moved to Toronto I came up with the idea how to mix a leaf with a monster cause of his nickname. Jonas liked my sketches and after that it has been many Monster leaf masks… I´m very proud to paint for Jonas and show it to the fantastic fans of the Maple Leafs.

This design idea I came up with last spring, with the monster leaf super big all over the mask, so Jonas becomes a monster leaf with this on his head…watch out! Jonas also wanted a tribute to the fantastic town of Toronto, so in the background I created the Toronto skyline with the CN Tower. I´ve been in the tower myself to do research… :)”

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.

    I wonder if Gustavsson’s monster and Rinne’s monster are related.

      They look so eerily similar. Guess Gunnarson has a specific look when it comes to monsters’ mouths!

    Not perfect, I mean, in my opinion, something is missing…
    Anywayz, it’s a pretty good mask with a Toronto theme!

    Gunarsson is a genius.
