Which Neck Guard Does Price and Andersen Use?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what Neck Guard brand Carey Price and Fredrik Andersen wear? Really want a neck guard like theirs without a giant logo on it. But I have a feeling NHL league rules don't allow logos on goalie neck guards.

Sorry - couldn't find a good picture of Andersen.

Looks like a Vaughn to me... and likely has branding but is color matched to the neck guard. I could be wrong on both accounts, but typically when a guy has a contract with a manufacturer if they do wear something outside of the brand the logo has to be "ghosted."

Price is 100% in Vaughn. I posted about this on IG last spring. I don't know if it has no clear logos because of a CCM endorsement or NHL licensing. 

I don't know for Anderson 

If you want a unit with no logo, @Beccaraptor or Factory Mad both make nice units. I am sure Brian's or Passau would also make you a custom order with no logo. I wear a PAW and it has no logo per my request.

Betcha it's this. I don't think the licensing fees for a logo on a neckguard or two is worth it. Pads/Gloves/Sticks and to an extent helmets are better candidates as they're bigger, more noticeable pieces of equipment. 

I feel like neck guard licensing fees are in the same ball park as jocks.

I have posted Flower's Itech neck guard many times on IG. You can see that someone tried to sharpie over it. I assumed that was because Itech is defunct, but maybe everyone bailed on neck guard licensing and it's been like that since Itech existed.

I really doubt it's because of licensing fees.

Tuuka's wearing a Vaughn neckguard and the branding is there.

Factory will not have a logo by default. I own two- a black, no graphic and a royal blue with Union Jacks and “Demonic Rabbit” embroidered; but getting an embroidered graphic cost more (and was worth every penny). The Factory has removable bits to make whatever contacts you washable.  

Some brands will charge you for no logo, FYI.

Hey, I have 2 of these neck guards. They are Vaughn VPC 8000, the non-certified pro version.  Vaughn never sold the non logo version, only pros have access to those. The VPC line is discontinued but you can buy the updated version of the non-certified neck guard here http://goal.thehockeyshop.com/vaughn-velocity-v7-pro-xf-senior-goalie-neck-guard.html

Guys like Price, Neuvirth and Anderson still use the VPC model.

Andersen's looks super similar to the PAW version.  Notice that all the Vaughn/Bauer neck guards strap to the right side of the neck, but Andersen's straps on the left side (maybe both) and uses Jenpro tabs.  I'm sure he could easily have had Vaughn make a custom one that has the removable elastic (velcro on both ends), but if you're looking to get one for yourself it looks like PAW would be the easiest approximation.

I'm considering this, haven't used a neck guard since I was about 18 (dangler only) mainly because they all seem to press against the sides of my neck and give me a light headed sensation.  So a loose one with a longer elastic seems like the perfect style.

      Hey I was wondering if anybody had any recommendations on how to replace the Velcro on a Maltese neck guard? I’ve used it for two years and it’s still in great shape and really don’t want to buy a new one. I wouldn’t mind taking it somewhere to fix but I need to do something about it.

      I've had one skate in this so far, so here are some early impressions. 
      I haven't worn a neck guard in 13 years, so the initial feeling was a concern. My neck measures 16 inches and I got the size medium, which puts me at the top end of the size range, but I can wear it either fully snug or looser with the amount of Velcro to play with. 
      I switched out my padded Bauer base layer shirt for one without any padding (but bonus grippy elbows) because of how it fit stacked up inside my c/a. It felt surprisingly comfortable given my 2S c/a is only 2 skates old so I'm still breaking it in and everything is still settling. I was definitely aware of it though. 
      The entire thing is vented with holes for anyone worried about it being hot. I sweat like crazy anyway, so I can't really tell when something is actually hot while I play, everything is drenched in sweat by the end anyway. It did dry out nicely by the next day, so I don't think there are any moisture retention concerns. And the holes don't seem to affect the overall stability, it doesn't feel flimsy by any means. 
      Overall, any initial discomfort I am currently chalking up to 13 years without anything around my neck and the brand new c/a. We won the game and I didn't notice it at all during play. It was also my first game ever without a dangler which felt preeeeeeeettty sweeeeeet.

      For those of you who are like me...
      Wear a short chin mask Hate wearing a dangler Tired of getting a bruised clavicle Read on...
      In a nutshell, in spite of wearing a neck guard, I've taken some good shots to the neck and clavicle over the years. This past year in particular I had two redirections that caught me by surprise (mind you I stopped them) and left some nice welts. After looking in the mirror at what kind of looked like the state of New Jersey near my throat I realized 2 things:
      My Premier Pro C/A was ill fitting, not as mobile as I'd like, and needed to be replaced. Time to invest in a neck guard.
      I reached out to @Chenner29 letting him know I was interested in demoing a unit. He sent it out and I wore it a handful of times in some year end tournaments. It felt and performed great, so I ordered one. The results is this...

      Should help me stay classy with the new C/A unit as well... also with Maltese...
