Third Time’s The Charm Right?

Posted in Equipment Reviews, Pro Stock with tags , , , , , , , on November 16, 2010 by prostocknation

Customization plays a large part in professional equipment and under all the skates, gloves and sticks, jerseys usually get overlooked.  At first glance this looks like just your average size 58 Reebok Edge 2.0 (see our post comparing Edge 1.0 and 2.0 if you are unfamiliar with the two: https://prostocknation.wordpress.com/2010/07/30/pro-stock-jerseys-edge-vs-edge-2-0/).

One feature that all Authentic On-Ice jerseys have is the fight strap.  This is meant to tie the jersey down to the back of the pants in the event the jersey comes off during an altercation so the officials will have something to grab onto.

It’s not the first we’ve seen but some players who have been known to drop the gloves quite often have an additional fight strap on the front of the jersey to prevent it from being pulled over their head during a fight.

What’s really unique about this jersey is there are two fight straps on the back of the jersey, bringing the total to three on this jersey.  We really don’t know where the strap at shoulder height, right under the name bar, would attach to unless Hordichuk were to alter his shoulder pads as well.

ProStockNation.com Visits The Vancouver Canucks

Sorry for the quality of the pics, we didn’t have our DSLR with us this time.

Not much explaining needed.  I’m sure Canuck Fans have seen these doors plenty of times.

View from the Best Buy Club on the 500-Level at the Rogers Arena.  Not only did the ice get a new paint job but the floor in the bowl did as well; white with a blue and green scheme going on.

Back to the Canucks room.

Looks like Rypien’s skates are getting some attention.  We didn’t want to step foot in this room without the Equipment personnel present out of respect because we know how much pride goes into their work.

To clear up any rumors about the Sedins allegedly wearing an “11K” helmet, looks like they’re still using the 8K.  They’re  giving Bauer X:60 gloves a try and still skating in Supreme ONE95s after testing out Total ONEs at the end of last year.  We were surprised to see no Total ONEs in the room.

Sergei Shirokov is back in town and skating; we hope he earns a full time spot on the roster this year.  His gear remains pretty much unchanged since last season; Bauer 4500 Helmet, Bauer XXXX Pro Gloves, X:60 Skates.

Side note: On top of being a skilled player he is also willing to go out of his way for his fans.  He came out to find us after the Moose played the Heat in Abbotsford last year and signed my authentic Shirokov Moose Jersey.

 

Thanks again Sergei!
