Mario Batali, Michael J. Fox, Tiësto , Jeff Gordon and John McEnroe will all join New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist during a five-episode season of the new MSG Network series “The Mask with Henrik Lundqvist.”
The half-hour episodes feature Lundqvist in one-on-one interviews with his celebrity friends as they design goalie masks that Lundqvist will wear in upcoming games this season. Each mask is representative of the guest and their favorite things.
Discussing everything from sports and pop culture to cooking and family, Lundqvist will go into the kitchen with Batali, get on the ice with Fox, step into the DJ booth with Tiësto, go car racing with Jeff Gordon, and challenge John McEnroe to a game of tennis. Each mask will be auctioned off for charity with all proceeds benefiting The Henrik Lundqvist Foundation and The Garden of Dreams Foundation.
“The Mask” is produced by Stick Figure Productions and will premiere on Monday, February 16 after the Rangers/Islanders game.
