Brian’s Pad of Week: Eddie Lack Adds Canucks Logo
Eddie Lack has never shied away from showing his personality, so it’s fitting that the sometimes silly (in a good way) Swedish stopper has long worn equipment from Brian’s Custom Sports.
Known as The Custom Goal Company, Brian’s is on the cutting edge of unique, one-off originals, producing everything from pads that look like real money, to one that looked so much like set of Heineken beer cans, it made you thirsty.
They’ve teamed up with Lack again to produce this new set of Canucks logo set of SubZero Pro2 pads for the rest of this season, a fitting look for Vancouver’s new No.1.
The set features matching Canucks logos and stylish green and blue striping on Lack’s G-NETik Pro blocker and glove.
It’s a good look, but it’s not the first time they’ve combined on a cool custom set.
Lack’s Vancouver Millionaire-themed maroon-and-beige set for the recent Heritage Classic were gorgeous, and Brian’s also built the big Swede a sick Chicago Wolves-logo set of gear when he was in the American Hockey League.
Lack’s latest may be right up there with Chris Mason’s Winnipeg Jet-themed pads from a couple years ago, but comes in just behind Mason’s incredible Nashville Predators set in our rankings. But that’s okay, we keep hearing there may be a Johnny Canuck themed look coming sometime in the near future.
