This has been going on as long as I've been playing out(not goalie). I probably fall more than your average player. Likely a combination of playing hard at all times, physical, and perhaps not having the best balance despite being a decent skater. I don't notice it when it happens, but the next day I can barely walk. The hip bone is extremely sore for a couple weeks etc. This has happened with my old Tacklas(mid 90's), Lousville TPS, and now Bauer ONE80's. Does anyone else have this problem? I don't have the most cushion 6'2" ~175lbs. It's like the pant shifts upwards when I fall and there isn't any padding between my hip and the ice when I land. Suggestions? A bulkier pro level pant? I really dont want to add weight or bulk, but I also have to work the day after hockey. One thing I may try. I wear a Bauer jock made of compression material which obviously does not shift. I was thinking of sewing some foam padding over both hip bones. Might be my only solution.
