Hi I am Reyno Benjamin. I am doing this for
expertvillage.com. We are going to talk about ice hockey, floor hockey, deck hockey, and
roller hockey. I have been playing for about 25 years, so we are going to go over some
hockey equipment first. Your ice hockey skates, which are very important… it’s one size
smaller than your shoes. You got elbow pads in case you fall back, no injury. This is
your shoulder pads. It protects your chest area, your shoulder area. You just basically
strap it around, and it protects you from any injury… you strap both sides… and
solid. Alright, gloves… it can either be leather or nylon. I prefer the leather ones.
All different brands. You got to have your helmet. This is a CCM helmet. This is a half
cage with a shield. I don’t like the guards in between, you can’t have peripheral vision
for your handling of the puck. These are the pants. They go on; it has protection in the
back, down at the thigh area. These are your shin guards. The go right here, on your shins
obviously. They protect you from any injury. This you got to use, this is the cup to protect
your private parts. This is a sock that goes over your shin pads. It is a strap; it’s
like a girdle. What you do is, you have your shin pads on, pull up the socks, and on each
end you just flip it in. This is basically going to hold your socks. There it is. Pull
that way, then you put your pants on, and you’re good to go… so in case, it doesn’t
fall off. This is hockey stick. Mine is an Easton; it’s an easier medium aluminum flex.
Meaning when I snap it, it has a little bend to it. It gives you a little whiplash, kinda
like a sling shot. And that is your hockey equipment.
