Hockey helmets are arguably the most important piece of equipment on the list of required hockey gear. A helmet and face mask or shield will not only protect your face from sticks, pucks, and elbows, but it will also help prevent impacts to the head that can cause a concussion or worse injury. For parents, a quality helmet is the best insurance you can buy for your young hockey player. For advanced players, in checking leagues, or even inadvertent collisions in non-contact leagues, the hockey helmet gives you the confidence to play the sport with aggression. And a face shield or helmet cage allows players to hit the ice without worrying about a puck or an opponent who is careless with a stick.
Pure Hockey carries hockey helmets from Bauer, Easton, Warrior, Reebok, and CCM among others. You can buy a helmet, a cage or visor, or get both as part of a combo hockey helmet, which is a helmet with a cage attached to it.
