Carey Price finally put a name to the face of his new line of goaltending equipment when he unveiled a photo of his CCM-branded pads and gloves for the upcoming season on Twitter.
“New gear for this season!,” was all Price wrote on his @CP0031 account, but the exclamation mark said a lot.
Price was first spotted wearing all-white, unbranded pads at skates in Kelowna earlier this summer, with the lone identifying mark on the side: a “Made in Canada by Lefevre” badge typically found only on Reebok products.
That led to no shortage of speculation about the pads, which featured knee rolls, and Price finally ended a lot of it Monday with photos of both the leg pads and gloves, which included a binding-less blocker and a new-look trapper some are already calling the 600 series.
In addition to CCM, which is owned by Reebok, Price’s new gear was branded with “EXtreme Flex Pro,” another indication the new line of equipment will be targeted towards goaltenders wanting a softer, more flexible pad.
Just as we did with the first in-depth reviews of last year’s P4 line, including some one-on-one insights from Price himself, InGoal is meeting with Price and Reebok in the near future for a special sneak peak at the new CCM line, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, enjoy Price’s pictures:
