As was said above, a quality helmet for sure.
This one depends on your build, style of play, and how often/hard you hit the ice, but I would add pants to that list. I've worn mid level pants up until now(mid level Tackla, Lousville TPs, Bauer One80) and suffered numerous bone bruises to my hip bones and tailbone. I finally threw in the towel and ordered some top level Tackla 9000's.
Some guys never have issues low/mid level pants, but if you do a pro level pant can save you a lot of pain. At least I hope they can.
