I have been meaning to update this when I first saw Pascal Leclaire in action this season for the Senators. His leg pads are pretty sweet. They are simple yet tie in very well with the teams colors and motif and a nod to the history of the Senator’s past. He also has a matching blocker. Now only if the pads made the keeper, Ottawa would be set in net and not have to platoon Leclaire with Brian Elliot, Mike Brodeur (no relation to Martin, but not according to Mike who claims they are cousins. Yea right dream on buddy) and Ray Emery…. Oh wait, never mind. Welcome to the Sweet Pads Hall of Fame Pascal.

This is old news to most people, and I would have mentioned it earlier, but it was hard to find pictures at first. But Trevor Leahy , a prep hockey player, has desinged some interesting pads. The pads are suppose to look like netting of an open goal, to atttempt to fool the shooter into shooting at them, thinking he is shooting at an empty net. There has been some debate about the ‘ethics’ of this move. Is it cheating? Frankly, I am not too interested in that. I am more interested in just seeing the pads as something different and creative. Trevor, welcome to the Sweet Pads Hall of Fame.
