The Sharks predate me by one month and 10 days, which makes it easy to remember which anniversary we're coming up on so long as I can remember my birthday. Some days are better than others, but today Martin Jones (and the San Jose Sharks Instagram) has done me a solid by showing off the goalie's new mask.

Jones has had a great view of some of the not-so-terrific moments in Sharks history, but that's not stopping him from celebrating the team's 25th anniversary on his first Sharks goalie mask.

The good: It's not Sharknado themed. The bad: It's kind of boring. The ugly: The 25th anniversary logo is uninspiring. You can take the goalie out of the Kings but you can't take the soul-crushing-boring-aesthetic of the Kings out of the goalie.

What do you think of the new mask?
