Vaughn Velocity VE8 Junior Catcher

Finding a goalie trapper that works is a struggle that almost every goalie has had to go through. With the release of the Velocity VE8 junior goalie trapper, Vaughn is trying to make the choice an easy one. Using the same shape and catching style as the VE8 Pro Carbon senior goalie trapper but shrinks it down to junior size for the growing goalies out there.

The VE8 junior goalie trapper features the new offset, split T that Vaughn designed for the VE8 line. This T allows for a deep, and even wider pocket presentation, which results in better puck retention. The T being offset also allows for a more reliable close as less material is in the way of the pocket closing flush against itself.

The VE8 junior also has many key components that help the glove stay on the goalies hand. By including a full grip interior palm surface, as well as a padded full pull wrist strap to ensure that no matter how much growing room there is, the glove can be fit to stay on the goalies hand.

By combining some new features with an already proven and well liked design, Vaughn is bound to get more goalies wearing their gloves with the Velocity VE8 junior goalie trapper.

Sizing Information

Goalie Catch Gloves Sizing

More times than not, trappers are often overlooked compared to other pieces of gear where fit is concerned. Perhaps this is a result of the limited sizes available compared to other pieces of equipment: youth, junior, intermediate and senior. The first step to finding the correct trapper is to approximate your size by following the estimated age range and “heel-of-palm-to-tip-of-middle-finger” measurement:

  • Youth (age 5 – 8): 4.5” – 5.75” / 119 – 143 mm
  • Junior (age 8 – 11): 6.35” – 5.75” / 144 – 160 mm
  • Intermediate (age 11 – 13): 6.35” – 7” / 161 – 178 mm
  • Senior (age 14 and up): 7” – 8.5”* / 179 – 216 mm
  • *8” – 8.5” would constitute an XL palm on a senior trapper

Once a size has been estimated it is important to ensure that the palm lines up properly within the catching glove so that it can be closed without excessive force. Obviously new gloves will be difficult to close initially, but through either using it repeatedly or baking it with our in-house convection skate ovens they will soften up and allow the goaltender to easily close. We do not recommend using any conventional in-home ovens, as the results have been very unpredictable in the past.


After you’ve checked the palm, the second thing to look for is that the wrist strap goes directly across your wrist bone and has little to no interference with the chest/arm. The catch glove should be able to twist and maneuver in a multitude of save selections in addition to being able to grip the stick when puck handling, all the while keeping the hand in the correct position within the trapper.


For growing goaltenders, it is still best to stick within these guidelines rather than moving up to the next size to accommodate growth. Large gloves are going to inhibit the goalie’s control and inhibit development. It should be noted that as a result of the limited size selection, goalies wouldn’t jump sizes as quickly as other pieces of gear.
