Hockey pants – shorts with extra protection
Do not underestimate the importance of protective equipment. Even though it might seem a bit much sometimes, especially for a practice session, there is no such thing as being overly dressed for a hockey training, let alone a serious game. All pieces of equipment matter and you don’t want to find out what kind of injuries you can get, if you choose not to wear a certain item. If you are a hockey player for at least a year, you probably already have a personal understanding of why protective equipment matters in such a game as ice hockey.
Hockey pants are an important piece of any hockey players position. It doesn’t matter whether you are a goalie or and offensive position player, you need to have adequate protection for all parts of you body. Hockey pants offer protection to the middle part of your body, starting from where your shoulder protection usually ends and ending where your knee pads would start. They are basically heavily equipped shorts, made both to provide protection and to allow comfort and movement at the same time.
