Helmet cam footage.

This is some highlights from my C league game last night I took with my helmet cam. The team we played was garbage and we won 15-1. The helmet cam is a ContourHD and was mounted to the top of my helmet.

I kinda feel bad for them. Especially the defenseman @ 1:45.

Yeah.... many of those players can't skate very well. Especially that guy who can't skate backwards around 1:45.

I know I'm probably sounding overly critical, however seeing replays of goals and dekes of players who can barely move seems kinda pointless to me.

Also how did you mount it on your helmet?

I've been thinking of doing something of the sort for practice but as a goalie, i know it will be irresistible of shooters to try and hit that thing on top of my head lol

Are you guys way stronger than your division in general, or is the other team just awful and at the bottom of the division? Because they were really, really bad.

That team usually isn't that bad but their stronger players were either suspended for fighting the previous week or didn't show because it was a late game. You may or may not be able to tell but their goalie is a small woman with not a lot of experience and was also a fill in for a player that didn't show. The defense didn't give her much help though. Finally this area isn't exactly Hockeytown, I was surprised when I moved here that they even had rinks.

They won't let us wear helmet cams in our league. One of our guys tried it and the refs got pissed.

That looks like a beginner/novice level division and the losing team was absolute beginners. Doesn't take much for a game to get out of hand under those circumstances.

The ref told me not to where it again. It's more of a mixed league, like I said their better players weren't there and I left out footage with our weaker players because I made this as a little highlight reel for my teammates to share on Facebook. Also after I scored off the face-off the other team kind of quit.

Here's how I mounted the camera. I used the goggle mount with some zip ties. There is also and adhesive mount but I didn't trust it.

That's pretty cool. One of my teammates (we're also the Ice Holes, as it happens...haha) has a Go Pro camera that he mounts on the glass once in a while. It figures that most the cool stuff happens at the wrong end of the rink, though. Cool to see some helmet cam stuff even if you were obliterating the poor guys .

Trust me I wish I had better footage too. I'll wear it again at a pickup and maybe get some better clips. Does anyone know of a specific USA Hockey rule regarding wearing a camera on the ice?

There's nothing specific that I can find, however helmet mounted cams do violate the rules about "altering equipment."

Nice, buddy on my team did the same thing a little over a year ago.



On a related note, that's me scoring.

I saw that rule too but it only applies to non-adult leagues where a certified helmet is required (i.e. you can't remove your chin guard or any padding from your helmet) as it compromises the requirements to be considered certified. I think I'm going to ask the owner of the rink if it's OK and go from there but there is nothing stopping me from wearing it to a pickup game.

I like the the attachments you can use for the GoPro better than the camera I got because you can see more stick movement the lower it's mounted but mine was a lot cheaper. I like his captions, I thought of doing that too but look how much heat I'm taking for the team I played against, if I also verbally taunted them in captions it would be worse.

Haha, I spent that whole video *****ing at how bad the goalie was. At lot of these goals could have been stopped.

I figured the goalie was probably a fill in.

Our leagues require certified helmets/visors/cages for everything; games, pickup and skate and shoots. I think it's part of the USAH insurance requirements.

That was depressing to watch. I like how the footage was all dark and kind of had the fisheye effect, since that kind of made it look like a nightmare sequence. Seems appropriate. 2:34 really sums up this whole video.

Here's some helmet cam footage from an English U18 goalie during practice.
