Hockey helmets are one of the most important pieces of protective hockey equipment you’ll buy and wear. So it's vital to find a helmet that fits properly and has the best protective features. Hockey helmets come in sizes for every age and level of skill – from a youth hockey helmet for beginners, to an ice hockey helmet for adults who’ve been playing for years.
There are a few features to consider when shopping for a new helmet. An adult hockey helmet can be purchased without the added cage or visor, but youth leagues require face protection. So if you’re looking for a junior hockey helmet, you want to look for one that includes the added cage.
While most helmets can be tailored to fit your head snugly, starting with the closest fitting size will give you the best protection. A men's hockey helmet is available in small through large sizes, while jr. hockey helmets are tailored to fit smaller heads with tool-free options for easy adjustment and a perfect fit.
Helmets are available from CCM, Bauer, Warrior and Mission and come in a variety of colors. Most of the kids hockey helmets and larger sizes out there are CSA, HECC and CE certified for use in youth and adult hockey leagues.

What helmets provide the best concussion protection?
The two most protective helmets against concussions are the True Dynamic 9 Pro helmet and the CCM Super Tacks X helmet. Both of these helmets feature pro-level protection thanks to their one-piece shells and interior liners. These technologies work hand in hand to drive the force of hockey impacts away from the head.
