First Look At Henrik Lundqvist’s New Capitals Mask

Famed goalie mask artist David Gunnarsson provided a sneak peek of Henrik Lundqvist’s new Capitals goalie mask on Thursday. Gunnarsson has worked with Lundqvist for a number of years, as well as many of the past Capitals and Bears goaltenders.

Gunnarson released the preview on his Instagram page on Thursday. He wrote:

“It is with great joy I unleash the latest mask artwork for my friend Henrik Lundqvist🙏🏻⭐️. It was truly special to create and paint this Capitals piece for Henrik⭐️. We brainstormed together how to build the design, and pretty fast we came up with a plan👌🏻. Henrik wanted a completely new mask look✨, a totally new style for him💪🏻. For example Henrik always on all his masks for more than 20 years had small eletrical lightnings in the mask designs, not on this one. It is a design which live and breath the city of Washington🏙, it is a tribute to the fans of Capitals❤️. A crisp and clean design, but loaded with detail work and storytelling…👀📕 Henrik definitely wanted american bald eagles in the painting🦅. I made some test drawings how to build the story on the mask✍🏻, Henrik gave me green light🚦 and I picked up my airbrush guns and started to paint…🎨👨🏻‍🎨 We made two masks, same layout but different details and slightly more red on one of the masks. Thanks Henrik for the paint adventure🙏🏻🤓! @hlundqvist

The King himself also posted the video of his new design, stating “Final pieces. It’s all coming together. #ALLCAPS”
