Vaughn Velocity VE8 Pro Carbon Senior Catcher

The Vaughn VE8 Pro Carbon Sr glove is an evolution of the V7 XF, and provides a similar feel for goalies that were looking for that glove. The VE8 Pro Carbon features the familiar 2-piece cuff that the XF did that provides a more active flexible glove feel on the face.

The VE8 Pro Carbon features a new wide double "t" design that presents a bigger pocket square to the shooter. Vaughn has also offset the "t" so that it presents more towards the shooter, and increases the pocket depth as well. This new "t" along with the Pro-spec construction that reinforces the perimeter of the glove makes sure you are presenting the biggest possible area towards the shooter.

The VE8 Pro Carbon Sr, as it's name implies, also features carbon fiber throughout its construction. By featuring carbon in the front palm, as well as in the thumb piece on the back hand Vaughn has decreased the weight of the glove drastically compared to competitors, without sacrificing protection.

Finally, The VE8 features a dual pull wrist strap that allows the goalie to get the VE8 Pro Carbon Sr tighter than ever for increased control over the glove. This strap in tandem with the full interior grippy material, as well as an internal finger bar allows for better control than ever before.

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.
