  1. Thought I’d share a recently-completed project. My other recreational hobby is longboarding, and I’ve been thinking about doing some sort of skate-inspired mask art for a while. I had a somewhat large collection (although it turned out to be not quite large enough...) of skate stickers, so I decided to attempt a “stickerbomb” look. This is commonly seen on skate decks, helmets, etc. and I haven’t seen a goalie mask done this way before. After some Google searching, I did see at least one stickerbombed lacrosse helmet and liked how it looked enough to give it a shot. My original idea was t

  2. No Armadilla, No Hockey; so the stars aligned, 3 wise men pointed me to a manger and @Don Straus did his magic. Just want to get some pictures out there. This was a very special project and it was truly an honour to work with Don. Thanks to @TheGoalNet for putting us back together. Don made his first mask for me when I was 14; 25 years later, our paths have crossed once again.

  3. My adult men's team was up 2-0 with around 1:30 left in the third when they pulled the goalie. Soon after they dumped the puck in right at me, I stopped it at top of my crease and took a shot. Perfect shot. Could try 1000 times and it wouldn't be that perfect. Got it high and hard over the forwards heads to land around far blueline. Their D were far enough to the sides that they couldn't reach it. Puck went in dead centre. My first ever goal. And a shut out to boot! Stick used: Warrior CR1. Normal shooting grip, not the new Turco style all the kids use! Very cool to score. I c

  4. Right here! lol A topic that is long overdue for a solution. I really wish that the mask industry put as much thought and effort into updating their wares as the pad/body armor folks have. The mask hasn’t changed much at all in over 30 years. It wasn’t up to the task then, and still isn’t. It isn’t about adding a ‘pinch of this’ and a ‘splash of that’ to the shell. There is way more to it than that. It’s the entire concept of the mask that needs rethinking. Just not sure everyone will be willing to step away from what their childhood vision of a goalie should be. The ‘sensor i

  5. Very excited to show this off. Coveted mask painted by Erich - Resurection Custom Painting in Oshawa. I gave him a mock up of what I wanted and he ran with it and killed it. Can’t wait to get back on the ice one of these days. May have to wear old mask during warm ups though 😂

  8. Heres a project I recently completed. I put it on my Instagram but I might as well post it here too. I've been picking at it for the past few years. I love wearing old Jofas, but having a young family I worry about wearing 30 year old plastic on my 30+ year old head. Composite Jofa 282 replica (yep...a clone). Tried to stay as true to the original design as possible while removing anything I thought wasn't needed (logo, rivet holes, adjustment points) before creating the mold. Did the chin cup in black vinyl with a vertical stitch pattern. Cage is by OTNY I believ

  9. Hello - first post here. Kind of a gear collector but definitely use all of it too! Ventured into painting, sewing, heat pressing...all kinds of stuff to customize my stuff on my own! I also have a pretty decent collection of action shots because my uncle is a sideline photographer for the Eagles...and he comes to my games :) Anyway, enjoy!

  10. Arrived today — black/orange/silver colour scheme (just in time for Halloween). We got a decent deal: $0 for the custom options, and 15% off the whole set because we bought three pieces of gear.

  14. My son is the goalie for January for his Novice team, so we got the club's gear over the holidays. Rented some discount ice, and worked him out a bit. The grin on this kid's face after... just priceless! I love that he's having so much fun with this. (BTW - club uses LAK colours, so all his gear will match for the games )

  15. With the powers granted to me by the heritage of the GSBB in the prehistoric era of goaltending equipment admiration, here is the 2019-2020 NHL gear sitings thread we've all been waiting for! Can't wait to see what the industry will be coming out with this year! Here is a picture from B⭐️!! Nice graphic work as usual with the richness of sewn-on graphics! Lawa

  20. I don't have a lot of extra cash for new or custom gear but I had the opportunity to do a trade with a friend who does helmet air brushing. he refurbished a helmet and did a custom paint job for a hand made axe. the lid turned out amazing. he did a memorial plate on the back for a great friend that passed and i think about every time I strap on the skates or strap into my sledge.

  24. Yes- I signed in and answered about Factory Mad, so it is time to do an update. I kinda had a few mental health issues mainly from trying to figure out my place. I am not quite the grizzled veteran of playing goal or hockey, for that matter. Yes- I played hockey as a youth, advanced to Juniors, then got an injury and took 25 years off. I got my competitive rocks off from cycling and duathlon, was a recording musician for a spell, then returned to hockey 8 years ago. But I did what I wanted WHEN I wanted, which was threatened by Ulcerative Colitis. The past year and a half really tested t

  25. Mail day 😍😁😍 Pasquale pro return stick, matching pants are with Dennis at Factory Mad being repaired. Also, Michel is shipping my mask today and JF Aumais is wrapping it. Can't freakin' wait to hit the ice. I've never owned new matching equipment before, so this is pretty surreal.

  28. I frankensteined my chest protector a bit. Brian's subzero 2 chest, CCM Premier Pro arms and extra heart guard and there's part of a Simmons 996 beef up kit on the belly. So much cheaper than going out and buying a new one!

  29. *Disclaimer: I am not in any way, shape or form an equipment guru. I have, however, been repairing my equipment since I started playing in goal as a kid for reasons of curiosity and economy. I've taken apart and reconstructed more pads, blockers, gloves, C/As, etc. than I care to remember. As a result, I have made a handful of observations that I believe are pertinent to this discussion* Before I go on to why I believe this is happening, I also suggest putting a puck or a stick or something in the base of the palm and wrap tightly. Some gentle heat will move things along quicker, but you

  32. Long post November 2nd 2015 a day that is forever etched into my mind. It seemed like a normal day. Got up loaded up the car and went to a pickup game at one of the local rinks for a 12 to 2 session. I remember feeling extra tired during the skate. I remember thinking my skates must need to be sharpened logic being i was working extra hard moving around on the dull blades. I didn't take a shower at the rink that day just packed up and drove home. Once home i got into the shower and when i was getting out it hit me, it felt like weight sitting on my chest, i couldn't breath normally, pain

  37. I thought i would share a story about my experience with True. First of all, I had always wanted to try their skates. I just never got around to doing a scan, or a trace of my foot. I recently found a used pair online in Sideline Swap that were my size. When they arrived unfortunately the condition of the 1 piece carbon holder was not good on both skates which was not expected. I was disappointed, but that happens buying used gear online sometimes i guess. I contacted Kory at true, and he asked me to send pictures, and quoted me what i thought was a fair price to repair the skates. He sent me
