Clear Your Head
The X-Ray Helmet Series ($99.99), from CCM, is the dernier cri in hockey headgear: It's see-through! The X-Ray comes in translucent red, blue, electric green and black and is as safe as other CCM helmets. This season it will be the official helmet of the East Coast Hockey League. CCM, 800-524-4226; ccmsports.com.
Light up your lane with Ebonite's Quasar ball ($129.95), which just for the fun of it contains red and white lights that begin flashing upon contact with the floorboards. The Quasar blinks for several seconds before shutting off automatically. According to Ebonite, the replaceable lights will last for more than 40,000 games. Ebonite, 800-626-8350; ebonite.com.
