The Winter Classic might be over but the plethora of outdoor NHL games in 2014 is just getting started and New York Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist kept the hype rolling on Thursday.

Lundqvist took to Twitter to unveil his custom Stadium Series mask for the Rangers’ pair of outdoor games at Yankee Stadium. Painted by David Gunnarsson, the mask pays tribute to the Yankees and features the team’s famous pinstripes as well as portraits of Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig and Joe DiMaggio.

The Rangers play two outdoor games in a row at the end of the month as part of the Stadium Series, taking on the New Jersey Devils on Jan. 26 and facing the New York Islanders three days later.
