Eric Semborski Gets Incredible Mask as Gift From Blackhawks

The Eric Semborski story will never get old.

In December, when the Blackhawks asked him to be their emergency backup goalie against the Flyers at the Wells Fargo Center, it was an unexpected dream come true for the local 23-year-old.

Afterward, the Blackhawks gave Semborski some pucks, a hat and they sent him a jersey. It got even better when Chicago flew him out for a home game about a week later and Semborski received a hero's welcome.

But the Blackhawks didn't stop there. They wanted to give him a special gift and asked David Gunnarsson, a professional artist for NHL goalies, to help.

And he certainly delivered, making Semborski this incredible mask.

Welcome Eric Semborski to the DaveArt Squad! 👊🏻 Eric is the young goalie who became a Blackhawks goalie for an evening😃. It was the 3rd of December last year when Blackhawks and Flyers met. Chicago Blackhawks wanted to give Eric a present and memory after the game and they asked me if I could create a real Blackhawks mask for Eric🥅. For sure, it would be an honor🙏🏻! Eric and I started to brainstorm and we came up with a design plan. It is a true Storyteller mask📕. On a distance it is a clean cut Blackhawks mask, and when you come closer you will discover a lot of sweet details🔍👀. Such as the date of the magic day, and also the skyline of both cities...🏙 On the top it is the logo of the Temple University. And for sure the design is loaded with all the DaveArt Trademark Super FX...✨ @nhlblackhawks @philadelphiaflyers #DaveArt #nhl #DaveArtTheCradleOfCreativity @NHL
