    Default Goalie equipment

    Wonder whats the difference is between college and pros as to goalie equipment. Below is a blurb that was in the Minneapolis paper today.

    Goalie Mat Robson has been skating with the team since he left the Gophers and signed a two-year, entry-level contract March 18, but he isn’t expected to play before the season ends.

    “His equipment isn’t by league rules yet,” coach Bruce Boudreau said. “We’ve ordered him all new NHL equipment, but it hasn’t gotten here.”

    It is just a BS excuse so they don't have to protect him in the next expansion draft.

    I think the pads are smaller in the pros.

    On the radio the other day Russo said Robson has to get fitted for NHL regulation equipment. The specs are then sent off for manufacture. Then the equipment is sent to the NHL for examination and actual signatures before being forwarded to the player.
