Goaltender's Glove

The following is a brief summary on how to fit a goaltending glove.

In today's game many believe that bigger is always better when it comes to a goaltender's glove. This is not true. Having a glove that is too big will limit a goaltender's ability to catch and control the puck. Here are two tips to follow when fitting a glove.

Second, the heel of the goaltender's hand and the heel / cuff of the glove should line up.
