The Caps take the ice in Vegas tonight with a chance to win it all but illustrator Dave Murray can already claim victory. Dave was able to fulfill a childhood dream; working for the NHL. As an avid hockey fan (himself a goalie) Dave has always illustrated the players he admires most. Sharing those illustrations on his Twitter feed got Dave noticed, and a call from the NHL led to one of his favorite assignments yet.
Tasked with showcasing the superstars of the sport, in a portrait and in action, Dave put his signature style to work. Playing with shape, color, texture and tone Dave perfectly captures the essence of these great players, including the greatest superstar of them all, the Stanley Cup.
Scrolling through the NHL's social media channels you'll see Dave's awesome work alongside all the memorable moments we all love to watch.
