STARTED WITH AN IDEA
They say that necessity is the mother of invention. That is certainly true with the creation of the Paddle Wedge.
The idea for the Paddle Wedge came about after its inventor Patrick suffered a finger injury on his blocker hand during practice. The first priority was to ensure he didn’t have to miss any ice time, and the injury itself wasn’t prolonged from any further impacts during practices and games.
Initially extra padding was added to the inside of the blocker to try to improve impact absorption. It was quickly realised that this did not solve the issue. The modifications to the blocker didn’t offer the required protection and it proved cumbersome impacting the use and feel of the blocker.
The solution must be easy to apply and not hinder play between the pipes. The solution was to prevent the puck from ever reaching that spot. A goalie stick accessory was the way to go. The photo above shows the first prototype model of what is now the Paddle Wedge.
HOW IT WORKS
The ramp like shape of the Paddle Wedge makes the puck deflect up and over the blocker’s soft spot. Because of the hollow core, the wedge is super light and is unnoticeable during play. The Paddle Wedge 2.0 is more compact and feather light than the original. A must have item for ultimate goalie stick protection.
HOW TO INSTALL
Changing your stick on the fly? No problem. The Paddle Wedge slides off easy and pops right back on to the new stick in no time.
WHO USES THE PADDLE WEDGE?
The Paddle Wedge is made by pros, and is being used by Pros around the world, from the NHL to the Elite League.
