Hockey elbow pads should protect the player’s elbow and fill the gap in protection from the glove to the bicep guard on a player’s shoulder pads. One way to determine the appropriate size elbow pads to get is measure from your mid forearm to mid bicep. An elbow pad that is too small will leave significant gaps in protection in the wrist area and bicep. An elbow pad that is too large will not stay in place and interfere with a player’s mobility.
