While looking at the pictures for my WC Vintage post and I came across Robert Kristan, goaltender for the Slovenian National Team. Look at his pads, they are sweet. It seems that he is going for the throwback look to the leather pads back in the day (which was a Wednesday, don’tcha know). He has been wearing these pads all season, including in the Austrian domestic league where he plays for Acroni Jesenice (here is a close up of his blocker). But seriously, is there a reason why ads need to be not only on the sweaters, but on the pads and stick too?
