Brand new for 2018, CCM has overhauled their flagship Premier line and brought out the CCM Premier II Pro Senior Goalie Blocker. Building off of the already successful Premier line, the Premier II has new specs and pieces of technology sure to turn heads.
Continuing on the success of all Premier style blockers, CCM did not sacrifice their style and protection yet added new specs which create a different function. The first noticeable change is within the backhand wrist opening, now called the One Piece Cuff. The One Piece Cuff spec is a larger piece of foam that wraps entirely around the wrist and fills any negative space between the wrist and back of the blocker board. Goalies will notice this extra piece against their wrist, but it will not hinder mobility.
Next, CCM has redesigned the index finger portion of the sidewall and connection point for the index finger protection which is called the Curved Finger Protection. This spec is similar to what was on older model Premier blockers; however the redesigned sidewall coupled with the Curved Finger pad gives goalies added protection and seal along the stick. Continuing on the success of the ExtremeFlex3, there is a full wrap of D3O Material entirely wrapping around the index finger to protect against any pucks that might roll up into the stick and try to jam the index finger.
Another change that most goalies might not notice is within the binding setup on the sidewall of the blocker. Now, CCM is offering a true Bindingless blocker not only on the face of the blocker but on the sidewall too. This provides the goalie with a very clean look, but it also improves the durability by removing the binding that used to stick out and get worn on the side of the stick. Building on the sidewall protection, the CCM Premier II had a new shape on the inside of the sidewall which yields a better gap when keeping the blocker tight to the body in the butterfly.
The board itself is a thick HD board with centered hand protection which gives the goalie a natural feel and balance on the wrist. This board is very thick and helps launch pucks into the corner when angled properly. Finishing off the blocker is CCM’s suregrip material which has a slight tack to it, ultimately helping the goalie with the best grip on their stick throughout a session.
If you are an elite-level butterfly goaltender who is looking for the a natural feeling blocker with a large HD blocking board ready to send pucks hard to the corner, look no further than the CCM Premier II Pro Senior Goalie Blocker.
