SJHN Daily: Reimer Debuts Reverse Retro Mask



Credit: San Jose Sharks

James Reimer sported his California Golden Seals-inspired mask at practice on Monday for the first time.

On Oct. 20th, the NHL and the San Jose Sharks debuted their brand-new Reverse Retro jerseys, which paid homage to Seals of the 1960’s and ’70s, to the public. The team will sport these snazzy jerseys six times this season, with the first being this Friday at the SAP Center.

With that Nov. 25 contest rapidly approaching against the Los Angeles Kings, San Jose Sharks players have been testing out the teal and gold gloves at recent practices. Now, we’ve seen Reimer’s mask for the upcoming Reverse Retro nights.

The back of Reimer’s mask appears the same as his current home and away masks, which includes biblical verse Joshua 1:19, an inspirational quotation from businessman and entrepreneur E. Joseph Cossman, and two “Baby Sharks” to represent his two daughters.

We will be waiting for a close-up view of the front, but it clearly includes the Seals-inspired colors and font.

Like his regular home and away masks, you can see the subtle “Optimus Reim” Transformers in Reimer’s Retro mask.

Hopefully Reimer, who won’t make tomorrow’s trip to Seattle because of lower-body injury, will be able to sport his new look soon.
