Price Goes Old School

from Dave Stubbs at the Financial Post,

Montreal Canadiens goalie Carey Price shoved his hand into the 50-year-old stick-hand blocker, a glove more than twice his age, and wore the look of a man who’d just pushed his palm into a bowl of liver.

He was similarly impressed with the flimsy catching mitt. And the 1970s-vintage chest protector, which was barely more than a thick undershirt.

“This isn’t protection,” Price said incredulously.

“It’s suicide. Can you imagine me going out there like this? For even one practice? No chance.”

continued with picture of Price in the gear.
