Henrik got some new Bauer pads and took part in a promo photoshoot with some other players: Kane, Stamkos, Johnson, Kesler, Eric Staal, Kessel, Seguin, Lundqvist, Schenn, Dubnyk, and Carter.
Henrik gets new pads every year and works with Bauer on getting them exactly right. I like the look them. They look artistic. I'm sure no one really cares what they look like as long as they work.
I wonder if there is some psychology on how the pads look. Do mainly white pads make it hard for forwards to see where the pads end and the ice begins? Can they put skulls and flames on the pads if they want, or do they need to stick to the teams color scheme?
Look at how tan he is!
