Canucks netminder Jacob Markstrom and Eddie Lack recently spruced up their look with some new goalie mask images and the results are impressive.

Markstrom's new mask – created by
Swedish custom mask artist David Gunnarsson – resembles a killer whale:

But you have to know exactly where to look for it:
