What you wear on your feet when playing hockey is one of the most important decisions you’ll make. You need skates that fit extremely well, will hold up for a long time and are within your budget.

We take all of this into our consideration when evaluating skates. Anything you want to know about the best hockey skates, we’ve collected for you here.

A stick is your connection to the game. With so many brands and models out there, deciding can be difficult. We put together our list so you can find the exact stick you need for your style of play and within budget.

The less time you spend on the computer looking for your stick, the more time you have to become a better player!

Hockey is an extremely physical and dangerous sport and you need the right equipment to stay safe. We put together the best list of helmets, gloves, pants, shin guards, chest protectors and much more.

We have all these great articles on what the best gear is for you, but you need some way to get that gear to and from the rink! So we put together the best list of Hockey Bags.

We have bags dedicated to just carrying sticks or bigger duffel bags you can use to carry everything. Check out the list below to find your bag.

We don’t want to leave any rock unturned when it comes to reviewing gear for you. This means that the small things, like hockey skate laces, get reviews or the really big things, like at home hockey skate sharpeners.

The little things add up to big things. When we review tape and wax, we do so knowing that if you get the right one, then your stick is more likely to last longer, you’ll have better control over the puck, and overall you’ll be a better player. Make sure you take care of the small things.

Goalies have different gear than regular players, so we gave them their own section!

Get the best goalie gear to support you and your clean sheets! So much relies on goalies. You can’t be worried about your gear while trying to block shots flying at you. Make sure that you are strapped up and ready to protect the net!

Is the street more of the spot you like to dominate? Great! We’ve got reviews for inline and street hockey gear so we don’t leave you hanging.

I actually started playing hockey with street hockey. We had a neighborhood full of kids all within 4 years of each other, so we could always get games going in the local cul de sac.

Check out the list below to make sure you’re getting the best value inline and street hockey gear.
