The experts in our goalie department are goalies too, so they stay up to date on all of the latest gear and know how to help you find the right pad setup, stick, or goalie skates to help you become the other team’s worst nightmare.
Skates make all the difference in between the pipes. Our skate-fitting experts will ask the necessary questions to make sure you’re being matched with the right custom-fitted skates. You’ll notice a difference not only in confidence, comfort, and balance, but in speed and maneuverability as well. Available in-store only, we follow Glen Sakeriska’s blade contouring technique, coupled with precision blade re-alignment, to produce a set of skates that we guarantee will transform the way you play the game.

Properly fitted goalie equipment is critical to playing your best on the ice. Ill-fitted equipment can make movement difficult and fail to provide adequate protection, which is why our goalie experts will carefully ensure you only walk out of the store with the gear that’s going to help you play your best.
But that’s not all, we also know how important personal style is to a goalie. That’s why we’ll also help you customize your equipment so that you have a unique look on the ice.
