In hockey skates, Bauer led the way with a dominant 72.7% share, followed by Reebok at a distant 18.2% and CCM, worn by 9.1% of players.  Sticks are a lot closer but Bauer still takes the gold here at 36.4%. Easton is right there, though, at 31.8%, while Reebok and Warrior come in at 18.2% and 13.6% respectively.

Jumping to gloves, once again there is a more even spread, but Bauer leads again at 31.8%. There is, however, six brands of gloves represented here, the most of any category. In 2nd was Easton, followed by Reebok, Warrior and CCM in that order. Winnwell came in last, with one pair, the gloves Rick Nash will be wearing during the games. Finally in helmets, Bauer came in with 50% of the total, followed by CCM at 22.7%, Easton at 18.2% and Reebok at 9.1%.

Goal-line to Goal-line Gear

Looking to positional breakdowns, among forwards Bauer again takes the majority, garnering 53.5% of players. In second place came Reebok at 21.4% followed up by CCM 12.5%; Easton 8.9%; Warrior and Winnwell both tying with 1.8%.  On defense, the battle was a lot closer, but surprise – Bauer still won with 37.5%.

USA Olympic Hockey Team Gear Breakdown

USA Olympic gear infographic

So it’s almost Olympic hockey time and we are preparing to watch one of the best tournaments in the game of hockey.

We decided to take a look at the games the only way we know how – through the lens of gear. We researched all the big name Olympic hockey rosters, including the USA, Canada, Russia, Sweden, Finland, Czech Republic and Slovakia, breaking it down by what brand each player wears. We looked at the four main categories for players – skates, sticks, gloves and helmets.

USA, USA, USA

Our first installment focuses on the USA olympic hockey team. Bauer leads the way in all categories except for goalies, carrying 58% of the total gear worn.  This isn’t too surprising with the recent release of the APX2 skates and stick, with the Vapor line perennially being among the most popular around the sport.

In skates, Bauer is the choice for an impressive 80% of American Olympians, while four other competitors are tied for second with only 5% each.

In sticks, Bauer tied with Easton with 8 players out of a possible 22 using their products, each doubling Warrior, the next closest brand.

In gloves, Bauer again takes a hefty lead with 54% of players wearing their mitts. Between the new Nexus, the TotalOne NXG and the Vapor models – APX and some early APX2’s, Bauer gloves are hugely popular. Warrior and Easton put up respectable numbers in gloves with 22% and 14%, respectively.

Helmets are another area where Bauer has created a stronghold, with 59% of the Americans wearing their lids. Easton was second with 18% of players. We were a little surprised that CCM came in so low among the Americans.

Gear by Position

We also decided to split it up by position. For forwards, Bauer again led the charge with 47% of all forwards gear, followed by Easton and Warrior at 18% each. Reebok, CCM, Sher-Wood, Graf and VH Footwear all finished with fewer than 5%. Among defenseman however, it was much less spread out. Bauer will be equipping 75% of the USA backend, followed by Easton at 19%, while CCM and Warrior tied with 3%.

Between the pipes, its all about Vaughn, with all three of the US goalies wearing their pads and helping Vaughn with 53% of the total gear in net. Bauer and Warrior were up next tied with 13% while Reebok, CCM, and VH Footwear with 7% each.
