A Belated Welcome Back, Peter Forsberg

Posted in Gear Sightings with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 13, 2011 by prostocknation

Foppa has made his return to the NHL and he is wearing a Vapor XXXX Skate on this right (troubled) foot and X:60 on the left.  Forsberg has consistently been a premier player in the NHL when healthy and hopefully he can be a difference maker in helping the Avs make the post-season.  It’s interesting to see the Nike in the Nike Bauer logo is still visible on his skates since it should’ve been blacked out by now.

He was also seen practicing in an Easton S19 helmet but has gone back to familiar Bauer territory (5100, not the 5000/5500 since those have been discontinued.)  Like Iginla, he is still loving the Z-Air style gloves and it doesn’t look like he is using a real EQ50 either since the focus weights are not visible.

Can we start calling the Easton P4 pattern Forsberg again?
