Shoulder pads protect hockey players from a wide variety of impacts during gameplay such as blocked shots, body checks, contact with the boards, and so on.
How do I choose hockey shoulder pads?
To choose the right size shoulder pads, start by standing and measuring around the circumference of the chest. This number will correspond with a size on the sizing charts, which can be found on all product pages. To ensure maximum flexibility and protection, shoulder pads should not be too tight, but snug enough to not move around too much. The bicep guards should also not interfere with the elbow pads.
What are the best shoulder pads?
The best shoulder pads all depend on personal preference, play style, and skill level. Some players may want a bulkier and more protective fit, while others prefer a slimmer and more mobile fit. The four major hockey brands (Bauer, CCM, True, and Warrior) feature two or three lines of shoulder pads that cater to different players based on their needs.
