How to Buy Ice Hockey Protective Gloves

★ Montreal Canadiens Merchandise: jerseys, hats, rugs, mugs, souvenirs

Buying a protective glove for hockey has a lot to with the personal comfort of the player.
Some players will prefer a glove that fits small and loose, while others will choose a larger sized glove that gives the most protection.
No matter what the player's personal preference is, the main point to remember is the gloves should provide protection for the hands and forearms from pucks and sticks.
When choosing gloves, look for those that will provide the player with some protective lining, such as hard plastic or foam along the back side of the hand.
The correct sizing of a glove should depend on finger length.
A good gauge for glove size is this: if the fingers touch the end of the glove, it's too small.

Choose gloves that come into contact with the elbow pads. The gap between the top of the glove and the elbow pad should be as minimal as possible.
This will provide the most protection against injury. When sizing a glove for a child the main thing to remember is that you're looking for protection and a stable grip, while still maintaining good control of the hockey stick.
Some things to keep in mind when buying hockey gloves include :
a) the age of the player
b) the level of play they are participating in
c) the length of the player's fingers in relation to their age.

Following are some quick tips for buying gloves for inline and ice hockey:
* For a comfortable fit, gloves should fit snugly but not too tight.
* Throughout a player's entire range of mobility, gloves should always overlap the elbow pads.
* While the player is trying on a glove to check for fit and comfort, press on the backside of the glove; no pressure should be felt.
It's the padding of the glove that should absorb all of the shock from play.

Following are some general guidelines for sizing and fitting hockey gloves. Keep in mind that sizes will vary from one manufacturer to another, therefore always try on gloves before buying:
* Senior: 14" to 15"
* Intermediate: 13"
* Junior: 11" to 12"
* Youth: 8" to 10"

The gloves should be air dried after every practice and game.
Gloves should be checked after every game and practice - if any damage is noticed, the gloves should be immediately repaired or replaced.
Always make sure the palms of the glove are soft but that they don't tear or rip.

Most of the major hockey manufacturers all make gloves and a few companies such as Sande, Muskoka, Eagle and Tackla specialize in them.
