Best Goalie Blocker

What makes the blockers on this list the best? Durability, feel, and control. These blockers are made to satisfy any style of play and give you the best deflection control available. They also have the best hand and finger protection, and will continue to last while other blockers simply fall apart over the course of a long season. These are the best on the market, and they won't let you down.

Bauer Reactor 6000 Goalie Blocker

Bauer Reactor 6000 Goalie Blocker

The reason this blocker is the best on the market is pretty simple. It protects better than all the rest, it lasts longer, and it feels great. It’s made to protect your entire hand and cushion any impacts from hard falls, even awkward ones. The finger protection is also extremely comfortable and fully protects you, which is a combination that most blockers just can’t seem to perfect. It also feels very similar to old-school blockers for a reason. Its design is very similar to the popular Reactor line of the 90’s, that were constructed tougher than all the rest as an answer to game becoming much more physical and fast.

Vaughn B 7800 Velocity 5 Goalie Blocker

Vaughn B 7800 Velocity 5 Goalie Blocker

Vaughn’s latest blocker feels different in a very good way. It’s designed to protect your fingers the entire way around, and also has cushioned padding for the back of the hand. The hand opening is also a little larger than before, so it’ll fit easily no matter the size of your hand and arm. The side of this blocker is made to be an extension of the traditional blocking area, which will really help to deflect pucks exactly where you want them to go, giving you full control.

Brians G-Netik Goalie Blocker

Brians G-Netik Goalie Blocker

The G-Netik blocker is made to last. The palm is designed not to slip around, which will keep the blocker exactly where it needs to be. It also features a removable forefinger pad, for players that feel that the newer finger protectors restrict their movement. The blocking board is what you would expect from a top-of-the line blocker as well. It’s very lightweight, but is made to be extremely durable if well taken care of. A great easy breathing finger gusset system to keep you cool help to round out this nearly perfect blocker.

Warrior Ritual Pro Custom Goalie Blocker

Warrior Ritual Pro Custom Goalie Blocker

Warrior’s Ritual Pro Custom blocker is used by many of the top goalies in the pros, so it is made to meet all of the pro-level sizing standards. While it meets all the standards, it’s blocking surface is larger than most, and gives that extra advantage for goaltenders that are looking for any edge over their opponent. The lower board position allows for better stick control and will keep the lumber for bouncing out of your hand. A collapsing palm is made to handle moisture better with time, so it will not need stitch repair as quickly as others.

Reebok Premier 4 Pro Goalie Blocker

It’s no surprise that Reebok’s Premier line is making an appearance on this list. The first thing to note is the large inside thumb and wrist surface, made to be tough, durable, and extremely comfortable. There’s also a 7-piece wrap around finger protection system that actually molds to the goalie stick. The stitching is top notch and will not need to be repaired when other blockers are falling apart. Add in the terrific pre-curved blocker shape to cut down on puck skip over, and you have a near perfect blocker that any goalie will love.

I'm a die hard hockey fan that also plays. I live in sunny Los Angeles, but I'm most comfortable on a hard sheet of ice with a puck in front of me.
