Pure Hockey is the No. 1 hockey store online for the best hockey shoulder pads and protection. We carry a wide selection of sizes, colors and styles of shoulder pads. With top hockey brands like Bauer, CCM, Reebok and Warrior, you're sure to find the right shoulder pads for you and your game. When shopping for hockey shoulder pads, there are a few key takaways. First is the level of protection you need. Youth players like Mites and Squirts, beer leagues and no-contact adult hockey league senior players would require less shoulder and chest protection than a high school or college ice hockey player, engaging in more on-ice contact. Next is the overall fit, mobility and comfort. Making sure the shoulder pads don't ride up when moving your arms up-and-down, and side-to-side. You'll also need enough protection in your stomach between the bottom of the chest protector and top of the hockey pant, and from the elbow pads to the end of the shoulder pads itself.
