I know these type of pads are intended for roller hockey, but has anyone had any experience using them for ice? I play in a non-checking beer league, and would like to have more mobility as my shoulder pads now are very bulky and seem unecessary. The Mission one seems to have sufficent padding.
I play ice hockey in a non-checking league. Will these type of pads provide appropriate protection?
This protector is intended for inline use but may work for ice in a non-checking league. You'll probably feel more impact from pucks hitting you due to the weight of ice pucks compared to inline pucks. But bear in mind that "non checking" doesn't necessariy mean that you aren't going to have body contact and this item will not protect you against that.
