"Hockey accessories" is a wide-reaching term that might include a number of different products. This term might refer to anything from protective gear that might be sold separately from the main hockey uniform to training equipment to skate care. Many of the following products listed here can be found at places such as Dick's Sporting Goods, Pure Hockey, and Hockey Monkey.
These products are mainly replacements, such as the laces and runners, while others offer improved comfort, as is the case with the insoles. Soakers, help to maintain and protect the skate's blade while sharpeners sharpen the blade. Chamois can be used to dry the skate blade in order to keep it from rusting.
Stick accessories are usually used for a couple of things. Tape can be used on the blade or handle of the stick, both of which help with control. Wax can be used on the tape of the blade to add to that level of control and to protect the tape job. Butt-ends are often used to give the handle of the stick a better grip.
Aside from regulation pucks, specific practice pucks are also made, including weighted pucks that are more difficult to handle and smaller pucks for younger players. Puck pails are simply used to carry pucks.
Visors provide protection for the face during games while defoggers keep visors clear. Stickers and decals are just used to decorate the helmet while temple pads provide protection. Multi-tool screwdrivers have phillips head, flat head, and allen wrench attachments for tightening and fixing while skull caps help to keep the hair out of players' eyes. Replacement parts are simply used in case something is damaged or lost.
Gear meant to protect specific regions of the body during physical play.
Deodorizers get rid of odor, oftentimes through the use of a spray. Drying racks helps to do the same by giving equipment a place to air out.
The various sleeves listed here provide support or compression for the afflicted area of the body. The ankle sleeve provides support and pain relief for the ankle, for instance. Ice recovery wraps help to heal muscles after games or practice through the use of ice. Gel pads can be used to protect tender areas, such as the achilles. Athletic tape is used to wrap certain body parts and tape remover spray makes it easier to take that tape off. Lubricating ointment keeps friction from equipment to a minimum. Protein powders help to build muscle and blender bottles are used to blend drinks together, such as protein shakes.
Referee uniforms, including jerseys, pants, and armbands, all used to make sure the referee is clearly identifiable can be purchased. Hockey whistles have specific characteristics that make them ideal for using on the ice, such as being designed to wear over a hockey glove. Hand warmers can be used for those who need to stay a bit warmer while in the rink and coaching clipboards display a picture of the ice.
Hockey socks are generally made to keep feet dry during games or practice while hats are usually used to keep warm off the ice. Additionally, a number of products exist to help players train, whether that be for passing, shooting, stickhandling, or some other aspect of their game.
