When the New York Rangers face the Islanders and Devils, Henrik Lundqvist will wear a mask with the images of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio on it. As designer Dave Gunnarsson points out:
“Henrik wanted to pay tribute to the fantastic Yankees of New York and have a clear baseball connection on the mask with portraits of legendary Yankees players. I loved the idea!
Henrik and me started to brainstorm and setup a plan how to create it.
The creation is a mix of Henrik’s crisp designs, and a NewYork Rangers theme mixed with the passion of Yankees.”
Maybe some of that Bronx magic will help the Blue Shirts move up the Eastern Conference ladder.
