2012-14 Antti Niemi San Jose Sharks Bauer Game Worn Mask Photo Match Includes Carrying Case
Lot #633
This beautiful painted goalie mask by Bauer was worn by Antti Niemi while playing for the San Jose Sharks during the 2012-13 season and playoffs and into the 2013-14 season. This native of Vantaa, Finland played a handful of seasons in his home country before making his NHL debut in 2008-09 with the Chicago Blackhawks. The hockey world took notice during Niemi’s first full season in 2009-10 as Antti became the starting Goalie, playing in all 22 playoff games while leading Chicago to their first Stanley Cup Championship since 1961. During that memorable run, Niemi recorded two shutouts and won all 16 of the Hawks playoff games. During the off-season that followed the Cup win, Niemi and the Hawks were unable to come to terms and Chicago’s Stanley Cup hero became the new man between the pipes for the San Jose Sharks. Niemi spent a handful of years in the Shark Tank before going on to represent Dallas, Pittsburgh, Florida and Montreal. All told this Goalie spent 11 seasons between the pipes in the NHL.

This beautiful mask by Bauer was worn by Niemi durng the 2012-13 season and playoffs and into the 2013-14 season. The Sharks logo is painted on the chin. The mask shows solid game use with all interior padding intact. Shown above are a couple of beautiful photo matches of Niemi wearing this exact mask both during the 2012-13 and 2013-14 season. Also included will be the Bauer carrying case. A beautiful piece from this Stanley Cup champion.
