Buying Hockey equipment?

Hi,

Please can people recommend somewhere to buy hockey equipment?

I live downtown and don't have a car so need to be able to get there on the bus or metro.

I need skates, shoulder pads, helmet etc. I have already looked in Sports Experts but it seems fairly limited.

Thanks for any tips.

You can go to google - maps, type in your address, then go to "search near by" and type in sporting equipment, might help

You can go to another Sport Expert that has the Hockey Expert section. They have much more hockey equipement than a standard Sport Expert. There's also Sport Rousseau that has pretty much all hockey equipment. Theres one on Papineau street, corner Rosemont and another one in Laval with a much much bigger inventory.

Heres their site:

I dont know if its possible because its on the service road of the 440.
It is however MUCH MUCH bigger and has much more selection.
I do all my hockey shopping there.

I actually have to go soon, need to buy some new skates, the ones I use now are old and I want an upgrade

The Sport Rousseau on the 440 is HUGE.

By the way, if you order from their site for over a 100$, shipping is free.

You might want to plan on two separate trips if you're going to have a 30-minute walk... if you really need all the equipment, that would be a lot of stuff to carry.

Rousseau Sports (Rosemont / Papineau) is the best store since you are downtown. I go there a lot because of the location and the service.

Maybe A. Roy Sports is better (let's say at par with Rousseau) but it is in P.A.T. in the far east... 12009, rue Notre-Dame Est.

Ici Sports (Lacordaire and Jean-Talon) is also pretty good, great service, they changed my blades on a Saturday afternoon even if they had no blades that were fitting! (they had to remove blades from a pair of skates on the showroom).

Of course Canadian Tire is great when they have sales, got my gloves there at the end of last season for around 30$...

You can get great deals on used gear @ Play it Again Sports.
Decarie just below Sherbrooke.
It's in NDG very close to Westmount.
Close to Vendome Metro, 24 bus on Sherbrooke.

All these rich Westmount people buy new gear, barely use it and then sell it to PLay it Again.

I always buy my skates there cause you can get a $500 pair for about $200 barely used.
And they will already be broken in !

yeah they look like a good skate.

i dont like the idea of having to change the blade every 10-15 sharpenings.

depending on how often you will play or want to pay. For a geaser like me who only plays for fun, Canadian tire had good prices for what I was looking for.
