Hockey glove sizes are broken down into measurements such as 13, 14 and 15. Older hockey gloves the overall length would equal the size of the glove. However, modern hockey gloves have been using shorter cuffs that offer improved mobility. To determine your approximate size you can measure your palm and multiply it by two and that number will roughly be the size glove you should use.

Size & Fit Guide
  • Gloves should fit like loose winter gloves over the fingers. The top of the glove needs to extend up to the forearm and to the bottom of the elbow pads (except short cuff fit).
  • The glove should offer freedom of movement in all positions without chaffing or restricting movement. Measure the distance between the fingertips and the elbow pad to determine glove size.
