Jiri Hudler is in the midst of a career year for the Calgary Flames. He cemented his spot as the leagues number one star for last week by picking up two points in each game he played. Hudler finished the week with 4 goals, 4 assists, and a total of 23 goals and 33 assists on the season. He helped the Flames earn seven out of eight possible points last week as well.

Up top, Hudler is using a CCM V08 helmet. He was wearing a lot more CCM gear, but seems to have recently transitioned to STX for his gloves and stick. Hudler’s stick is the new STX Surgeon RX stick we just posted about earlier today, while his gloves are the STX Surgeon 500 model. Hudler wears a CCM pro model of pants, and on his feet are the Bauer Supreme Total One MX3 skates. Hudler’s under protective gear includes Reebok 11k elbow pads, shoulder pads, and shin guards. He also uses an Oakley visor.

Talbot is primarily a Reebok guy when it comes to his pads. He uses the Reebok Premier XLT goal pads, as well as the Premier XLT catch glove and blocker. When it comes to his stick, however, Talbot prefers Bauer as he is currently using a Bauer Reactor goal stick.
