Can anyone tell me what suspenders most of the nhl-players are using? The white ones. I've seen that the white suspenders are very common, and I see them very often when the jerseys go up, when fighting and tackling and so on.

Two links where you can see the white suspenders that I'm very keen on.

I dress in the exact same order. I know a few people that go skates first but I don't get it. Don't you cut your socks, jock, and pants up that way?

I'm pretty sure those are fight straps. The strap is sewn into the jersey itself, then hooks onto the pants. This prevents people from pulling your jersey over your head and getting a huge advantage during fight. Or, in Rob Ray's case, prevents you from taking off your jersey so your opponent has nothing to hold on to.

I always tape up two sticks at home and bring those.

When I get to the rink, I:
- put the cup in the jock
- put on shin pads
- put socks over the shin pads
- pull on breezers (pants) and tighten
- put on skates and tie them
- put on shoulder pads
- put on elbow pads
- put on jersey
- put mouthguard in
- put on helmet and snap it
- put on gloves
- grab my water bottle and sticks and go

Usually though I get there and stare at my equipment as if I've never worn it before. I just go completely blank like an idiot before games Guys are always wondering if I'm high or drunk or something (hell no).

You're right, those pics show the fight straps, not suspenders.

That can be tough, I'm from Sweden and I've never seen those straps here. I doubt someone in Sweden use them.

Do you have to sew the straps into the jersey or can you use them in any other way, anyone who knows?

And a other thing, the Warrior Hustler pant, or Warrior pants overall, how are the warrior pants considered in North America? Are they popular?
Thinking about buying a pair.(Hustler)

Ooouf, a few months ago, I broke my main in the warmups (it was cracked and going soon). No problemo, grab my back up. First shift of the game, snaps in half on a weird hit along the boards. No one had an extra. I had to take the stick of the people coming off.

It is REALLY difficult switching flexes, curves, and stick type from shift to shift!

Some do use them. Don't think there's a rule about it like in NA though. Heck, a fighting major is a Game Misconduct anyway.

Widing used it while playing for Brynäs for example



The fight straps are sewn into the jersey and then attached to your pants.

Is there some sort of secret to getting your jersey on? I always have trouble getting it on over my pads. It's certainly big enough once it's on, but my shoulder caps seem to hinder getting it on.

Is it a rule to use those straps in NA? That explains why i see "no-fighters" using them then.

Anyone who got some info about the Hustler pants? Or the Warrior-brand overall?
How is Warrior considered compared to brands like Bauer, Easton, CCM in NA?
