Hockey Shin Guards
Your shin guards, often known as shin pads, protect your knees and shins from contact with both puck and stick. Your knee should fit comfortably into the kneecap cup of the shin pad.
You should select a shin pad long enough to reach the top of your skate boot without interfering with the skate. If the shin pad is too short, your ankle could be exposed.
If it’s too long your skate could push the shin pad out of position causing your knee to be improperly positioned in the kneecap cup.
To select a size, bend your leg at a 90-degree angle and measure the length of your shin from the center of your kneecap to the top of your skate boot.
