Stars Enroth Joins Glow in Dark Mask Movement

Enroth Glow Mask right sideGetting traded to the Dallas Stars gave Swedish goaltender Jhonas Enroth a chance to work with long-time painter David Gunnarsson of DaveArt again.

It also gave Enroth a chance to join Tampa Bay Lightning goalie Ben Bishop as an NHL goaltender that glows in the dark.

Bishop was the first to use Gunnarsson’s new G.L.O.W Tech FX for a Tron-inspired glow-in-the dark mask, and Enroth has followed suit by having the word “STARS” on either side and the Stars “D” logo on the forehead painted in the same glow-in-the-dark fashion.

The rest of the design is inspired by former New York Rangers great Mike Richter.

“The new mask is a true time machine,” Gunnarsson wrote on his Facebook page. “We travel back in time and the design is created in an old school style, inspired by and also a tribute to one of Jhonas favorite goalies Mike Richter. The design is created in a very crisp and clean style, and it is a time traveller, this mask is old and heavily used … it looks like it has been laying in the attics for decades…. It has lots of old marks and stuff, and even rust around the screws.”
