How to Buy Ice Hockey Equipment

If you're just starting out ice hockey, you're going to need equipement. Depending on your budget, there are a tonne of ways to buy equipment. You can find used stuff on Craigslist or Kijiji, but personally I don't want to use sweat-stained stuff from other people. It's gross, and can be filled with harmful bacteria.

Where did I buy my stuff? I went to Sport Chek, got an associate to help me, and he had a handy checklist for what I needed. I ended up buying:
  • hockey pants
  • shin guards
  • upper body armour
  • elbow pads
  • gloves
  • Bauer stick
  • hockey socks
  • neck guard
  • mouth guard
  • jock
  • hockey leggings
  • Under Armour top
  • two jerseys (one white, one black)
  • Bauer XV skates
  • helmet
Yes, it did all add up but investing in decent equipment that will last years will pay off. I got my hockey bag from Costco, and it was one of those new ones that can roll. Hey, there's no need to suffer by carrying heavy equipment!

Where did you buy your ice hockey gear?
