Optimus Reimer Transforms On New Sharks Mask

Reimer Sharks Mask right sideAfter spending his entire career with the Toronto Maple Leafs, James Reimer has already undergone a complete “transformation” since being traded to the San Jose Sharks on Feb. 27.

Reimer started by using PadSkinz, which are sheets of a thin leather-like material with a special adhesive backing, to immediately convert his Bauer pads and gloves from Maple Leafs blue to Sharks teal. Then on Saturday, Reimer debuted his new mask from Dave Gunnarsson of DaveArt, a Shark-themed take on the “Optimus Reim” Transformers theme that fans loved so much during his time in Toronto.

“Optimus Reim is transformed into… The Shark Shock!?” Gunnarsson wrote on his Facebook page. “James Reimer and I have been working together for many years and I have created all his NHL masks and also all his masks based on his nickname Optimus Reims. With this new San Jose Sharks mask on his head James Reimer, a.k.a The Optimus Reim, will be transformed into something else … The Shark Shock. Just as usual it is made of metal and pimped with huge exhaust pipes!”
