Badly Bruised Upper Knee - Do I Need New Shin Pads?

Somehow two nights ago I managed to fall and hit the upper portion of my knee on the ice. While it happened very quickly, and I don't know exactly what happened, apparently my shin guard did not protect my knee.

So I guess I'm trying to figure out if my shin pads fit properly. I'm short, so I use a small size (13" I think). I don't tape them, so they rest on my skates most of the time, especially since the elastic on the bands has worn out.

Is there a recommendation for shin pad size out there somewhere? I'm only 5'7.

I thought my pads fit fine until Saturday night...

Thanks in advance for the help.
