Measure the playerís chest just below the arm pits by wrapping a tape
measure around the playerís chest. Refer to the image on the right for
help with this measurement. Use the chart below to match the playerís
measured size to the proper shoulder pad size.
When shopping for shoulder pads, look for shoulder pads that will provide
the most padding available for your needs. Forwards, should look for
lighter weight pads that allow more freedom of movement.
Defensemen need larger pads with the maximum protection against being hit
by the hockey pucks.
