I would guess a majority of the league wears Jofa shoulders. That's not an original thing. It's just branded differently at retail. The RBK 9k and 8k from last year's line (or their equivalents) are the two at retail you often see in the NHL, though they made changes to them for pretty much the first time this year, but good ones, those new ones by all reviews. That pad, the 10K, will probalby filter in, but most guys hang on to shoulders longer then any other piece of gear, so it may take a while.
RBK dominates in shins and elbows too.
