You may not be Sidney Crosby, but thanks to the folks at GearGeek Hockey at least you can suit up like him.
Hockey fans and amateur hockey players can’t help but be curious about what gear their favorite NHL players are using — and some of those folks aren’t just curious — they’re outright hockey gear fanatics!
Until now, it’s been difficult to find out what sticks, helmets, skates, gloves and pants active NHL players use. But with the launch of GearGeek.com, all that has changed.
GearGeek is the world’s first online database for NHL equipment. Researching more than 3,500 items used by all 700-plus active National Hockey League players, fans and fanatics can check out who is using what gear, sorted pretty much any way you can think of — by brands, teams, positions, stat leaders and salary cap leaders.
Bauer, CCM, Easton, Reebok and more — the site is updated daily, which is extremely important since players can switch gear with little or no advance notice. GearGeek is also free to use and requires no registration or login. Information loads lightning-fast, so you can find the data you’re looking for in a matter of seconds.
At 72.3%, Bauer is the most commonly found skate in the National Hockey League with the Vapor 1X the most popular. CCM is second at 18.7% boosted by its trademark Super Tacks line.
Conversely, CCM is the most commonly found stick among pro players in the league at 34.3%. Bauer is right on its heels, however, at 31.8%. Warrior rounds out the top three sticks used by the pros at 19.7%.
“GearGeek is also interesting as a place to see which brands of gear are most popular,” GearGeek Marketing Coordinator A.J. Lee said. “Search your favorite teams and players by position and other criteria. If you’re curious to know which brand of stick is the most popular in the NHL, GearGeek’s “NHL” sidebar link will tell you at the click of your mouse!”
