Shark Life: Going To Need A Bigger Mask

by Ann Frazier / sjsharks.com

The San Jose Sharks are not strangers to the 1975 Steven Spielberg blockbuster Jaws.

The infamous soundtrack is played ahead of every power play at home. Martin Jones featured the character Quint on his goalie mask during the 2017-18 season.

But Sharks prospect Antoine Bibeau just took the Jaws connection to the next level.

Recently revealed on Twitter by Air Brush Zap's Sylvie Poitras, Bibeau's new mask dedicates plenty of real estate to the classic movie.
