Before yesterday's Winter Classic, goaltending mask artist extraordinaire David Gunnarsson, who creates designs for both Henrik Lundqvist and Cam Talbot, had a display setup in one of the hospitality tents outside the Big House and it looks like Henrik Lundqvist's Yankee Stadium mask was on full display (via Puck Daddy, H/T reader Adrian A.)...
...beyond the fact that it's pinstriped, says Stadium Series on it and includes such Yankee legends as Ruth, DiMaggio and Gehrig, it also has some Lundqvist trademarks including the crown design on the forehead as well as his Crown Collection logo on the chin. Man, I wish we could have gotten a glimpse of the other side.
...i guess this could be a promotional mask, but I think there's way too much Lundqvist theme for it to be anything but his mask.
...i also wonder if the pinstripes on the mask are a clue that he'll be wearing the pinstriped pads I posted in November...
It's cool I guess, but as a bigger hockey fan I'd rather see the Yankees adapt Ranger's colors and designs!
@TheNYRBlog Holy crap, that looks so awesome. I just got a little excited for the Stadium series games!
@TheNYRBlog great, of all the days to not bring a change of pants to the office!

@IcyCupSorry, nothing new. I know IT people looking into it. Damn Candy Crush.
@MissJtotheK Yeah, blog is having a brain fart right now.
@TheNYRBlog I opened it in Safari .... Thanks for the link! Sweet mask. I wonder if the other side is more blue.
