We always spread the news when artist Dave Gunnarson makes a beautiful new mask for a Caps goalie, but when Gunnarson revealed a new mask for Hurricanes goalie Eddie Lack today, we knew we had to make an exception.
Lack’s new mask features the Muppets’ Swedish Chef, who is ready to help Eddie cook up some saves. And tacos.
From Dave’s Facebook page, replete with emoji:
It is a Swedish buddy on Eddie Läck’s new mask… Eddie likes food, and especially tacos👊.. So the Swedish Chef has always showed up on the back of his masks🍴..
This time the Swedish Chef shows up on the mask itself! Ready to fix some tacos for Eddie😛!
And on the backplate of the mask another buddy of Eddie shows up 👍
I had a lot of fun when I created and painted this piece. And just as usual the design is loaded with all the DAVEART Trademark Super FX💎 and a treasure map of details all over the mask🔎.
I love to create and paint masks every day in totally new styles. Every mask is totally unique.
Thanks Eddie! I love to be your artist!😎 We have been working together for many years.👍
Thank you all❤.. And be ready folks, Eddie and I have already more tasty stuff in the pipeline🍗.

Lack with the new mask:
The back plate of the mask also gives nod to another buddy of his: Former Vancouver teammate Roberto Luongo.
Despite the fact that Lack plays for a rival team, you’ve gotta appreciate the design! Börk Börk Börk!
