Teal Town USA called B.S. and San Jose Sharks president Jonathan Becher confirmed these purported “reverse retro” jerseys are fakes…too bad!

Another example of how tough the UFA market is right now — The Hockey Code projected Kulikov at $2,991,125 for one season. He was also a top-four defenseman for Winnipeg in 2019-20, albeit not a particularly good top-four defender.
