No Fashion Statement

from the Vancouver Sun,

The Detroit Red Wings, currently battling for a spot in the Stanley Cup finals, have some of the oldest players in the National Hockey League, including starting goaltender Dominik Hasek (aged 42), and ageless defenceman Chris Chelios (45).
Small wonder the team has ordered 75 pairs—including 20 pairs at the start of their series against the Anaheim Mighty Ducks—of Coreshorts, a product invented by an Abbotsford physiotherapist and one that has found its way into every NHL locker room, as well as those in other major sports leagues.
Compression shorts have been part of an athlete’s wardrobe for years, but Coreshorts takes the concept a step further. By angling elastic pieces within Lycra shorts in an X-pattern running diagonally from the hip to the opposite thigh, Coreshorts support the pelvis, lower back and groin. The more the athlete pushes in a direction, the more stability he or she gets.
