Be­hind THE MASK

ANDERS NILSSON | VAN­COU­VER CANUCKS

The Hockey News - - BUZZ - – MATT LARKIN

IT’S EASY TO FIND one of Nilsson’s sons on his new­est mask de­sign from Dave Gun­nars­son: that’s smil­ing two-year-old Mio, de­picted in the top cor­ner on one side. But what about Nilsson’s other son, Loui? Well, he wasn’t quite born yet when the mask was painted, so Nilsson opted for a sil­hou­ette of his then-preg­nant wife Emelie. The pro­gres­sive Nilsson also sports a Pride flag on the back to sup­port his gay friends.
