The Vaughn VE8 XP intermediate goalie trapper is a new take on what most goalies think of as a Vaughn trapper. By building the Vaughn VE8 XP intermediate trapper from the ground up, Vaughn has created a trapper that works much better for goalies that are a fan of the "fingers up" catching position.

The VE8 XP intermediate trapper still includes one of the best features introduced to all of the VE8 trappers however. This is the offset and split T of course. This T does a couple of things for the VE8 XP intermediate trapper. For one, it widens the pocket and presents more of the twine to the shooter. This increased pocket size also helps with puck retention once the puck is in there. The offset portion of the T however, helps with the closure of the glove. By moving the attachment point off to one side, the trapper closes much more flush when compared to T that sits directly in the middle of the closure.

Another unique feature that the VE8 XP intermediate trapper offers is a single-peice cuff design. The single piece cuff allows for a more solid catching surface on the front of the trapper, which will kick pucks away further if the puck is going off the cuff rather than in the pocket.

Vaughn has also increased the protection on the palm of the VE8 XP intermediate catch glove by adding extra foam to the outside of the felt in the palm. Since the pocket is closer to the palm when compared to the standard VE8 intermediate trapper, it is important to make sure that the palm has that much more protection.

With these features and unique design, especially for a Vaughn glove goalies are sure to find a VE8 trapper that will work for their style of play.

Goalie Catcher Sizing

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.

    Goalie Catcher Hands Simplified
  • Regular - Catcher worn on your Left Hand
  • Full Right - Catcher worn on your Right Hand
