Lehner Soul Hunter Senators Mask Invokes Nightmares
Ottawa Senators backup – and likely future NHL star – Robin Lehner is invoking nightmares.
No, it has nothing to do with the abysmal team defence that allowed the Anaheim Ducks to fire a franchise-record 56 shots at the Ottawa net on Sunday night, though that may cause his coach to lose sleep.
Lehner’s nightmares come from his new mask by fellow Swede David Gunnarsson of DaveArt.
“Lehner’s latest NHL mask is the next step in his own mask series, ‘SoulHunter,'” Gunnarsson explained on his Facebook page. “We wanted to create something totally unique, the nature of a nightmare. The design that we saw in front of us was a sinister and unpleasant feeling, all created in a very violent style with a matt rugged finish, a design that delivers in all angles … the feeling you have when wake up in the middle of a nightmare.”
As with a lot of Gunnarsson designs, while the important logos are easily recognized from a distance, more details emerge the closer you get. Or in this case, “the deeper you dig into the nightmare.”
