Jonathan Quick Went Retro in Kings’ Opener with Rogie Vachon Mask
After all the great college football ended on Saturday evening, I had a chance to watch some of the Kings’ opener against the Canucks. Hanging out with my cousin Corey for his birthday celebration, one thing stood out to all of us immediately — the Kings went retro with their jerseys. While I wasn’t wild about the Kings’ unis, goalie Jonathan Quick looked fantastic in his old-school retro pads and mask. The mask was incredible, just like Rogie Vachon back in the day, and it had ears and hair painted on. It looked awesome. Check out some of the pics courtesy of In Goal Magazine:
The Kings went back to their normal unis for Sunday’s game at Calgary and wound up losing 3-1. Jonathan Bernier was in goal for the game, stopping 29 of 31 shots. Quick stopped 23 of 24 shots the night before, so I’d say the Kings would be better served rolling with the throwbacks all the way around. If you have a superstition working, you can’t break it. And how awesome did those ears look painted onto the mask?
