BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — When the Buffalo Sabres unveiled their "going gold" jersey in August, it turned lots of heads; including that of Sabres starting goaltender Carter Hutton.
Following Thursday's media day , goalie mask designer Jesse's Custom Design unveiled the special design on twitter to match the team's uniform.
Both the Sabres and Hutton hope the new mask will contribute to a more successful second season in navy and gold.
The 33-year-old Thunder Bay, Ontario native had a record of 18-25-5 with a goals against average of 3.00 and a .908 save percentage.
Hutton signed a three-year deal with the Sabres last season with an average annual value of $2.75M per season.
The Sabres will wear their gold jersey 13 times this season, beginning with the home opener on October 5th, against the New Jersey Devils.
