Simon Edvinsson what's in the bag?
The 2021 first-round pick discusses finding the right skate for a larger human.
After a successful test run of this concept, the “What’s in the bag?” stories are going to become a fixture here at Shap Shots.
Thanks to Joe Veleno for being a willing test subject, and thanks to readers for letting me know they enjoyed the concept. If you missed Veleno discussing his stick choices and how he uses a curve inspired by Jamie Benn, you can do so here.
This week, I sat down with Detroit Red Wings rookie defenseman Simon Edvinsson who is in Detroit, sort of, for the remainder of the regular season. He’ll finish the season in Detroit, but the Red Wings are going to make sure he only plays nine games so his entry-level contract slides a year.
Players in general get more personal about two pieces of equipment, their stick and their skates, which is why stories within this realm are going to focus heavily on sticks and skates.
With help from Geargeek to fill in some gaps, Simon Edvinsson has the following in the bag:
Gloves: CCM Jetspeed FT1
Helmet: Bauer Re-Akt 150
Skates: Bauer Vapor 2X Pro
Stick: Bauer Nexus Sync
