Behind THE MASK
ANDERS NILSSON | VANCOUVER CANUCKS
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.
