FOR THN’S 2017 GEAR GUIDE,

The Hockey News - - The First Word -

we spoke with in­dus­try in­sid­ers and re­tail ex­perts in or­der to rank equip­ment in 19 cat­e­gories from head (hel­met) to toe (skates) and ev­ery­thing in be­tween. And be­cause we know not ev­ery­one is will­ing to drop a mort­gage pay­ment on a pair of skates, we split our rank­ings by price point. But let’s dream a dream and check out our top picks in the gold or plat­inum di­vi­sions for the most pop­u­lar equip­ment. The full Gear Guide is avail­able for free via The Hockey News app on your tablet de­vice.
