Hockey pants are designed to not have padding when the hip flexes (should be lower than your hip bone) for obvious reasons. There will always be that gap there.
Another thing you could try (assuming you like the fit) is a more form fitting pant such as in the Vapors to eliminate more negative space. You could even take a look at some high-level girdles such as the Projekt or Easton Motion Elite and grab some shells (EME comes with its own) to match.
But then again, perhaps Backstrom #19 is right and it isn't an equipment issue.
Thanks for the advice. I just dropped $$ on these one80's so another pant will have to wait. I may try sewing in some padding as a cheap fix.
