Below are photos of the new Reebok (not Rbk, the name is going away) Premier III pads that will start being worn by NHL goalies this coming fall. These will be available to all other goalies sometime in the calander year 2009.
From what I can tell, the pads are very similiar to Premier II (which were similiar to Premier I) but I think the graphics look much better.
The catch glove features a one-piece cuff that seems a bit goofy looking. I assume it looks better in person. It really looks like the cuff and graphics are the only changes.
Blocker – a blocker is a blocker…. the better graphics for sure.
Below is a pic of Loungo (in background) on the ice recently with the new pads… and they are white….
