Hank's New Mask

Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers, 2013

Lundqvist salutes Swedish legends

We have the great pleasure to present the new mask artwork for Mr. Vezina himself, the New York Rangers keeper Henrik Lundqvist!

This new mask is something completely new… This mask is the start of a series of tributes to legends from his home country of Sweden.

Henrik and I talked a lot during the fall about ideas for his coming masks, and this mask series crystallized. I started to do sketches at once... :-)

Every mask will have a theme, starting with this first salute mask from Lundqvist; Legends from the Silverscreen.

On one side of the mask you find the Swedish movie legends Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman painted in a soft classic style, and on the other side you find the legendary Swedish director Ingmar Bergman in a movie poster inspired layout, inspired from his iconic movie The Seventh Seal.

Everything is mixed into a classic Lundqvist layout, and of course you will find all the other stuff from Henrik's mask series, such as the Statue of Liberty in bling bling, and a lot of 3-D effects and other cool Special FX. And of course the lightning all over the mask, just as on all his mask all the way from his Frölunda masks.

I am so proud to be your painter Henrik!

Thank you all for your interest in my art. :-)

From a mask perspective I think its awful.

But Hank can wear whatever he wants as long as he plays the way he does.

I agree, I am not really crazy about the concept...I would like it better if he paid homage to past NYR legends or kept it relevant to the Rangers in some way.

I am with y'all...blah. But at this point he could come out in JD's mask from '79-80 as long as he is still playing like last year.

I dunno, if you could paint a mask to look like a dancer sitting on my face, I would wear it when I was in net. Just slap a couple of NYR stickers in the "adult appropriate" areas and we are good to go.

I think putting Ranger legends on it would have made it cliche. This is unique.

Yup.

The mask should have had an eagle having a piece of the constitution in his claws, sitting on top of a pole which holds the american flag, while enjoying a bottle of Coca-Cola and staring in to the eyes of John Wayne who is sipping Jack Daniels and eating a cheeseburger on one side. And then on the other side it should've had all the past Rangers legends, their numbers and statistics.

Or then, you know, something that is really close to his heart, like, his own culture and things he loves and grew up with or something.

I like it. I've worked in film distribution for years, and being my year of '13 of course it all makes sense

I wish he would just go back to his 07'-08' mask... by far his best.

An Ingmar Bergman themed mask?

Its certainly unusual, I'll give him that. I guess its one way to reference him being a swede.

It's hard to upstage Richter's mask as a Ranger goalie. Having said that I loved Steve's Spiderman mask. Doesn't get more NY than that.

I think it's ****ing bad ass. I think the concept is really awesome and the mask itself isn't TOO out there.
