Posted in Jerseys with tags , , , , , on October 14, 2011 by prostocknation

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals honored the late members of the KHL’s Lokomotiv Yaroslavl team tonight.  The jerseys they wore featured the Lokomotiv logo on the right chest and a special patch on the inside hem.  These jerseys are currently being auctioned off and all proceeds will go towards the Lokomotiv player’s children and families.

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.
