Ice Hockey Equipment

While most sports only require a few pieces of equipment to participate in the game, hockey is different. In order to take part in playing hockey, a player must have personal protection gear to stay safe and be well protected on the rink at all times. Goalies wear specialized equipment with more padding to protect against any shots on goal. Hockey equipment includes the helmet, jersey, skates, sticks, gloves, pads, mouth guards, and jockstraps.
