SherWood 9950 HOF NAT / BK Intermediate Goal Stick

The Sher-Wood Hall of Fame line up celebrates their company’s quality and timeless style. One of the three products they are celebrating is the Sher-Wood 9950 foam core goal stick. Made in Canada, the 9950 is one of the original foam core sticks and help set the path that brought goal sticks to where they are today. Mixing the traditional feel of a wooden shaft and the lightweight construction of a foam core paddle, the 9950 provided goalies with a stick they could feel comfortable using, game in and game out. Furthermore, carbon fiber strips are laid atop the paddle, for reinforcement, and then coated in a laminate to keep the paddle sealed together. For those who missed it and for those who never got to try it, the Sher-Wood 9950 is making a comeback!

SherWood is used as "standard" sizing, as they have standardized their paddle sizing year-to-year.


Goalie Stick Sizing

Unlike other pieces of gear, sticks are sized mostly to the goaltender’s preference and playing style rather than their height. The most important measurement, when purchasing a new goal stick, is the paddle height (the wide portion of the stick), which is usually taken from the heel of the stick to the shaft/paddle interface.


The reason for the paddle height’s significance is because it sets up the goaltender’s depth in the ready stance and (if properly sized) positions the blocker in an optimal position.


To start, put on at least your goal skates and if you’re looking to be more accurate strap on your pads and blocker as well. Once that is done get into your natural stance (the one you’d be in during a majority of gameplay) and look for the following:

  • 1) The entire blade of the stick is flush with the ground while being 1’ – 2’ in front of the goaltender’s feet.
  • 2) While satisfying the above, the inside edge of the blocker hand (while holding just above the paddle) sits on the outside edge of the goal pad. This ensures that there is no double coverage with the goal pad (stick is too small) and keeps the seven-hole sealed (stick is too large).

The reason stick sizing can be so subjective compared to other pieces of equipment is the ambiguity of “natural stance,” especially with young goaltenders. It is rather common for children to use taller sticks in comparison to their height, as their stance depth isn’t usually as aggressive as a seasoned goalie.


The shaft length, on the other hand, is usually best left at its stock length as it serves to counteract the weight of the blade and (ideally) place the center of gravity at the top of the paddle. The one exception to this rule is for advanced puck handlers—cutting the shaft will allow more power transfer when shooting as a result of being able to keep the blade flush to the ice while near the goaltender’s feet.


Note: Be careful with Bauer goal sticks: they measure about 2” shorter than all other brands due to a different paddle height measurement.
