New York Rangers and Team Sweden goalie Henrik Lundqvist just revealed his World Cup masks. Lundqvist decided to go not with one, but with two masks, very similar to one another, but with the second featuring less blue.
Lundqvist also announced that most likely one of the two masks will be auctioned after the tournament.
