Henrik Lundqvist showed off his new Capitals pads last week and now we have a first look at his new goalie mask.
“Final pieces, it’s all coming together. #ALLCAPS,” Lundqvist wrote on social media.

Hank’s red, white, and blue bucket features the Capitol building and two eagles, one of which is screaming (hm 🤔). Three stars on each side lead to Lundqvist’s new number, 35, on the chin. There is a Weagle texture that you can see when you catch the mask just at the right light. The mask is painted by David Gunnarsson.
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🙏🏻🤓
This bucket is especially going to look so nice in these pads.
Can’t wait to see it all together on the ice, Hank!
