Henrik Lundqvist 2015-16 Mask

Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers (born March 2, 1982 in Are, Sweden.)

Artist: David Gunnarsson

Lundqvist went back to a chrome cage this season (I love chrome cages.)


David Gunnarsson also posted a mask he painted to be worn with the vintage jerseys, but I haven't seen photos of that so maybe he hasn't worn that one yet.

Jean-Francois Berube 2015-16 Mask

Jean-Francois Berube of the New York Islanders (born July 13, 1991 in Repentigny, QC.)

Thanks to the reader who let me know artist info.

Artist: Sylvie Marsolais of Sylabrush

He has only played one game (October 10, 2015) this season. He was sent to the AHL in November, and is now on injured reserve. (12/21/15) Below is his Los Angeles Kings gear. On the Sylabrush website there are photos of a new Islanders mask, but there are no photos of him wearing it.

Update: Berube is back and has played in a couple of games in February. He's now wearing all Islanders-themed gears.

I will add the PadsTracker graphic when available.

Thomas Greiss 2015-16 Mask

Thomas Greiss of the New York Islanders (born Jan. 29, 1986 in Fussen, Germany.)

Artist: Cross-eyed Air

He sticks with his "scary creature" theme on the right side...he's consistent. And I dig it.

Cory Schneider 2015-16 Mask

Cory Schneider of the New Jersey Devils (born March 18, 1986 in Marblehead, MA.)

Artist: David Gunnarsson

In December David Gunnarsson posted on his Facebook page that this was the winning entry from the fan-designed mask contest. I'm not sure if he will wear the mask.

Schneider wore the pads below at the All-Star game (it was held in Nashville, so he went with a "Music City" theme.)
