When it comes to good-looking goalie gear, Linus Ullmark always delivers. On his Instagram page this morning, the Buffalo Sabres netminder shared photos of his new pads for the 2020-21 season. The color scheme, of course, reflects the team's much-anticipated return to royal blue.

"One reason I love playing goalie is all the gear," Ullmark said in a 2019 episode of Beyond Blue and Gold.

Ullmark has always been eager to share his new equipment with fans on Instagram and we can't wait to see what he has planned for his new mask.

The Sabres have not used royal blue as their primary uniform color since the 1995-96 season. Since then, the team has sported jerseys in red and black as well as navy blue with third jerseys occassionally featuring the original royal.

Stay tuned to and the team's official social media channels throughout the summer for team news and more on the new uniforms.
