    Hi everyone, I play a ton of hockey, but I never got into it until I was like 18. I play floor and roller hockey 3-4 times a week in Buffalo. I recently got invited to join The Buffalo Fusion, Buffalo's premiere floor and roller hockey travel team. I'm going to be on the floor C team.

    Anyways, Ive heard of floor hockey players using lacrosse gloves instead of hockey gloves because they are lighter and more flexible. Since I'm only using a ball, not a hard puck, and hitting is considerably toned down compared to ice hockey, would you say that lacrosse gloves offer enough protection? Has anyone ever heard of players doing this?

    I played Denny Schlegal once in floor hockey, and he used lacrosse gloves, and he is considered one of the best DekHockey players in the world. any information would be appreciated!

    Lacrosse gloves would be sufficient, just dunno if you should wear them when playing ice though, not enough cuff protection.
