Interested in what equipment your favorite NHL players are using?

This is the place to find out. We're creating a community to be the Internet's ultimate site for this information, with constantly updated information we aim to be an up-to-the-game resource to allow you to make informed purchases.

Already know what your favorite player is using? You'd make a great Equipment Manager! We're looking to fill the positions for each team's Equipment Manager. You'll be responsible to the initial entry of equipment for the players on your team and for on-going management of the team's list. Not sure you can handle it? We have some good strategies to help you get going. It really is quite a lot of fun.

Please contact us at EquipmentManagers@proplayergear.com to help out. We currently have roles open for most of the teams in the league, so act now!

Not an Equipment Manager, but notice an error or have an update? The forums are the place to discuss the changes and to share what you lug around in your bag.

Player of the Moment
Who is making news in the NHL?

Chris Osgood

Chris Osgood

Osgood is in his 16th NHL season between the pipes and barring a (very) unlikely return to the NHL by Dan Cloutier, will be the final goalie to wear a traditional helmet/mask combo. The Cooper SK2000 he continues to wear is something you might find in a bin at the local Goodwill. If you do, pick it up -- it's a piece of history in many ways.

Nothing regarding retirement is confirmed, but Osgood has played in only one game since the end of January and with the rise of Jimmy Howard for Detroit this season, you may have only one more chance to see the potential Hall-of-Famer in the net. My guess is he's with a different contender next year.

Osgood switched from Brian's leg pads to Bauer over the past season to fill out the Bauer wardrobe -- even the old Cooper SK2000 says "Bauer" on it.
