Dobby has Dobby on his mask.

Dallas Stars goalie Anton Khudobin has a new bucket and, while he has always has his nickname "Dobby" written on it, he now also has Dobby, the Harry Potter character involved.

The mask, done up by artist is Sylvie Marsolais of Sylabrush, is quite a unique one.

On the helmet's right side, a large portrait of Dobby, a house elf with "bat-like ears" from the "Harry Potter" series, is depicted making a glove save. His Stars glove catching a Stars puck to match his Stars-green colored eyes.

Khudobin's mask has "Dobby" across the chin but the "D" is the Stars logo and the left side has the Stars logo inside the state of Texas. The top is adorned with stars.

One notable difference. While Khudobin's wears his glove on his left hand, Dobby the elf is depicted wearing the glove on his right.

But, in fairness, the veteran player and Harry Potter elf do have very different goalie styles.
