OT: Lundqvist's gloves

Hey guys,

I've noticed watching Lundqvist in the play-offs that he wears these white gloves underneath his glove and blocker. Anyone know what kind of gloves they are?

Thanks!

It's a European thing and they are gloves. Someone asked this a few months ago, don't know if there were any serious answers though.. Search

I believe Beezer used track and field gloves under his gloves.

A couple of guess's maybe it helps with the sweat or with old gloves, shots used to sting your bare hand, the batting glove may help. The other option is it makes the glove more snug.

I am not a goalie, in my experience 99% of them are batshiat crazy ......so who knows, maybe it helps his eyesight (joke).

The reason I ask is because I thought it was a good idea. My sweaty hands always make the glove slippery near the end of the game. Not to mention drying them out is a pain especially when you want to do hand-eye drills with them at home.

They almost look to me like gloves limousine drivers wear.

I remember when I was a kid playing active hockey three players on my team woar these cotton gloves underneath their gear. Actually both goalies and a forward... I know at least two of them used it against sweat/ rash and the last one I think just wanted to look cool.... But I do believe Hank's gloves are the same plain cotton ones... not batting gloves.

They are Cotton gloves that he throws away after he uses them. They have them at my job because I wear rubber gloves for an extended amount of time. Kind of like socks for your hands.

It's 100% because he wants to keep sweat out of the blocker and catching glove.

Your own guess was correct.

yes, they absorb most of the sweat. My hand would stink for a day even after a shower before I started using them. Also over the time of the game the glove doesn't get as heavy since hes changing them after every period.

Totally European thing, I still wear them after 13 years. I think the similar term in english is "waiter gloves". Google will help you to find those. Very thin cotton gloves.

I use them because I like to keep my glove and blocker a little moist when in net to give them a little more "flexibility", helps to give a little more grip and friction inside the glove.

Hank wears plain white cotton gloves under his goalie gloves - they absorb a bit of moisture and help keep his hands comfortable throughout the game. A bit of moisture or slipping can be a distraction, and the gloves keep the feel more consistent throughout the game.

I use them but cut off the fingertips. I'm weird, I need to feel it with my hand without covering besides the actual catching glove.
