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.

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.
