Gear Spotting Episode 1

16/09/2019

A week of NHL training camps and the start of European Hockey saw some of the best players and goalies in the world turning it on with some lovely looking gear and pad combos.

We’ve had our eyes on the action, so it's a warm welcome to Puck Stop Gear Spotting Episode 1, our weekly feature showing off the best gear around. Don’t forget to keep your eyes peeled for major drops from Bauer, CCM, True, Warrior and many more at puckstop.com and on our social channels.

Auston Matthews

Do you notice anything different about these photos? No, not the moustache! After a summer trialling new equipment following the split from Bauer, Auston Matthews has been rocking CCM gear in the latest Maple Leafs media days images and at training camp. He is currently using the CCM Jetspeed FT2 Skates and Jetspeed FT2 Stick.

Evgeni Malkin

According to @Pensinsidescoop Penguins' Newcomer Alex Galchenyuk arrived in Pittsburgh with two sticks. Evgeni Malkin tried one. He liked it. Galchenyuk now has one stick. The stick in question, from recent training camp photos is the new Bauer Vapor Flylite Stick. We don't have any specs or curve photos at present, but we'll be keeping an eye on Geno, stay tuned...
