The San Jose Sharks celebrated Black History Month with some special jerseys during pregame warmups designed by a familiar face.
Mohamed Fofana, the Sharks employee who created special shirts for the team's Juneteenth celebration, rolled out another inspired design on Monday.
"First thing I knew before I even had colors or anything is that I wanted to pay homage to Terry Smith," Fofana said in an interview with NBC Sports California.
Smith was the designer of the original Sharks logo. Fofana put his spin on the logo with red, yellow and green lettering spelling out the team name.
Last names on the back were also done in multi-color lettering and each shoulder had the letters "BHM" in honor of Black History Month.
But Fofana also had one other source of inspiration: his little brother.
"I wanted something cool, something fun. My little brother was around so I was thinking, those people at 16, 15 (years old), what would be interesting to them? How can I get them engaged to be like 'Hey, I want to watch this. I want to be a part of this,'" he said. "I didn't grow up playing hockey. I picked it up late in life. But it's been important for me to introduce it to new people and I think it's important to introduce young people to it."
The jerseys are being auctuoned off for charity.
