The Pro V Elite Carbon 2 trapper, unlike the name suggests is quite different from the original Pro V Elite. The new glove is much more similar to the VE8 XP, and therefore 590 break gloves from all companies. The single T pocket differentiates it from the VE8 XP, while maintaining the same great “fingers up” glove feel.
The PVE2 trapper features classic synthetic leather on the outside of the glove for traditional durability and that classic made in Canada quality and a little callout for the Quickslide on the back of the T so that they can match your new pads.
The break angle of the Pro V Elite 2 is right around 60* and is very close to a 590 break from competitors. This break is more suitable for goalies that prefer the fingers up glove position, but is quite a versatile design, that can work for any goalie. The trapper also includes Shock Shield in the palm of the trapper to cut down on stingers and help with puck retention inside the pocket.
Unlike the VE8 XP that the PVE2 Carbon is based on, the catcher uses a deep single T pocket that presents a large amount of lace to slow the puck down. The single T also provides a very snappy closure on the trapper right out of the box.
The adjustable strapping on the Pro V Elite 2 Carbon lets you synch the glove down very tightly. With double backhand velcro, along with a traditional nylon wrist strap your hand will not be slipping out of the PVE2.
The single cuff design of the Pro V Elite 2 Carb provides a large surface area for when those pucks don’t want to go right in the pocket. The low amount of flex the single piece cuff provides will help with puck deflection away from the goalie as well as providing a clean unbroken graphic on the face.
Our in store stock will consist of White, Wh/Sv/Bl, Wh/Rd/Bk, and Wh/Rd/Bu. The PVE2 is fully customizable and will be offered in colours to match any team when ordered custom.

More times than not, the fit of your Goalie Catcher is often overlooked. This is likely the result of the limited size availability compared to other pieces of equipment, however a properly sized Catcher provides you the protection and stick control you trust.
Which Catcher Size is for you?
The first step to finding the correct Catcher size is to utilize the “heel-of-palm-to-tip-of-middle-finger” measurement. This measurement will generally send you to the appropriate size you need.
Analyzing the Catcher Fit
It is important to make sure the palm lines up properly within the catching glove, so that it can be closed without excessive force. New goalie gloves will be difficult to close initially, but through either a standard break-in process, or "baking" the catcher with our in-house convection skate ovens, they will soften over time.
*We do not recommend using any conventional in-home ovens, as the results have been very unpredictable in the past and could damage your Catcher.*
Next you want to ensure the adjustable wrist strap goes directly across the wrist bone, and has minimal to no interference with your chest protector. The goaltender should be able to swivel their wrist to accommodate a range of save selections without any restrictions from the chest protector.
Sizing for Growing Goaltenders
For growing goaltenders we recommend following the guidelines set above, rather than sizing up to accommodate growth. Oversized goalie gloves restrict control, especially for young developing goalies. As you climb the size ladder for Catchers, typically the glove requires more strength for pocket closure.
Which Hand Do I Need?
Figuring out which hand you need for your Catcher can be slightly confusing. Goalies generally refer to themselves as "REGULAR" or "FULL RIGHT". Below is the easiest way to simplify which hand you need.
