It’s been two months since the start of the season, and San Jose Sharks prospect Georgi Romanov is still sporting a plain white mask.
A Sharks-themed mask is coming.
Romanov shared a peek at that mask recently, courtesy of the incomparable DaveArt:

Romanov says this mask, which he has in hand, isn’t a perfect fit though, so he’s awaiting a final version of the mask. He might use this one yet though.
Regardless, it’s a piece of art, a prehistoric take on Brian Hayward’s classic Sharks mask.
