Best Answer

It depends on what kind of hockey. If you are playing Ice Hockey you should wear: Ice skates (for ice hockey, not figure skates)
shin pads & knee pads (most wear socks over shin and knee pads)
padded shorts
chest and shoulder pads (they look like the pads that foot ball players wear. Make sure to get hockey pads)
elbow pads
neck guard (optional, but if you want to stay safe and warm you should wear one).
helmet (you should wear a cage helmet)
Jersey (to complete the uniform)
