Alex Lyon is seeing dead people.
The 25-year-old goaltender made his NHL debut for the Flyers in 2017-18, appearing in 11 games and posting a .905 save percentage.
The young netminder has become known for spooking his opponents with horror movie-themed masks.
After honoring the movie “It” last season and “Saw” in 2016-17, Lyon’s new goalie mask for the upcoming NHL season will pay tribute to the M. Night Shyamalan horror film classic, “The Sixth Sense”.
The mask is designed and painted by popular goalie mask artist David Gunnarsson and features the saying, “I see dead people”.
I am very humbled and proud to be the mask artist for Alex Lyon🙏🏻. It is with a pleasure we unleash Alex Lyon’s latest Flyers mask for the coming season👊🏻. The mask is the third chapter in his series of tribute masks to classic horror movies😱…. This Philly based movie was an honor to paint on a mask… It is created in a non symmetical way so when the mask turns from side to side🔄 it gives an extra scary effect… Parts of the painting is created in an unpleasant and scary style with the running orange colors🎨… The paintings on the side are painted with 3 different paint techniques, I love the challenge to mix paint techniques and create it into one unique painting. One painting is created with freehand airbrush🔫, the next with freehand sketching✍🏻, and the next with freehand brush🖌… The DaveArt 4️⃣-D Experience is also added to enhance to the storytelling on the mask📕, and also all the DaveArt Trademark Super FX✨ is unleashed. Thank you Alex, it is awesome to be your painter🙏🏻😊. #alexlyon @philadelphiaflyers @lehighvalleyphantoms @daveart @nhl #DaveArtTheCradleOfCreativity @theahl #DaveArtTheStoryteller
