Padded shirt principle applied to the jock

I need a new jock. I currently use a classic mesh short design with the fold down velcro tabs.

Works great for holding up the socks and the cup fully covers the family jewels.

But, I like to get in front of the net to block shots on D and deflect them on O.

I occasionally take one to the groin. Hockey pants have very little padding there. And the cup only covers the narrow area over my gun.

Are there any jocks out there with extra padding to cover this gap?

Not that I've seen but have been using these for years, and the UA uses quality materials, much better than the Bauer yellow ones I see all the time, and at $10 - 20% its a steal:

Thanks for the heads up. Just placed my order. 25% on top the already super low price thanks to the sale they've got going.

What about trying a goalie jock? It's more protective and since it covers a larger area, you'd have a bit less exposed.

Reebok 10k / CCM Pro jock features additional padding upwards/sidewards (think T shape).

Shock Doctor's nicer jocks all have padding. Been using one of theirs for years, I've been very happy with it.

That would be my suggestion as well. Shock Doctor seems to specialize in equipment with extra padding. There are other sports that sell padded shorts like baseball and football that you could possibly use playing ice hockey.
