Do players still rock yellow laces?

Recommended Posts

My sons, now U13, did the colored laces thing starting in daddy&me learn to skate classes.  As part of getting them excited for learning to skate we let them choose lace and helmet color...  It also allowed us to quickly figure out who was who out on the ice as they are twins.  LOL

Bright blue helmets and red, silver, yellow*, neon green, neon blue, etc. laces (not to mention fun stick tape colors) went by the wayside when they made the mite major travel team and only certain lace and tape colors were allowed, not to mention black helmets being required.  Three years later one has adopted black laces and the other white.

*We were in NoVA… tons of kids trying to mimic Ovi.  LOL

Imagine being the person who needs so much control and petty power in their life they are mandating what color of laces and helmets mite players must wear. 

It was like that across the two leagues they played in.  l never really thought much of it.  I've got no problem with the kids looking uniform, especially as they move up the ranks. 

The person you're referring to has been the director (and coach) of a pretty successful Tier 2 program, mite through midget major, for over twenty years at this point.  He must be doing something right.  I've never heard anyone complain about little Braden using a helmet that matches his jersey or not using neon green laces when the team colors are black and red.

If recent news has reminded us of anything, it is that successful coaches can also be dicks.

and GM's as well... I wouldn't be surprised if Lou Lamoriello had/has a ban on yellow laces, I heard he even told what players what kind of tape they could use on their socks.

As a person that has coached twins, it's not easy!  Especially when they switch numbers occasionally just to mess with you lol

Glad you can write off someone you've never met based upon a travel club requiring kids to look uniform.

Pretty cool.

I always used yellow laces until this current set, because everyone seems to be buying all the yellow laces.  

I think we all should rock yellow laces around @dkmiller3356

No more pics for you!  Or if/when I do make another Lightning game I'll photosh p yellow laces on you 😝

I still wear them, have worn them since the mid 90's.  I dabbled with black when that was all the rage but it just wasn't for me, and white is too boring, so yellow it is.  I do see a lot of other colors now a days though, pink, blue, green, orange, red, basically any color you can think of I've seen out there (both beer league and young kids).  So yea, people still wear yellow or any color they want so wear whatever you like.

I am waiting on the Photoshop version. Plus the yellow laces will tie in with the whole lightning color scheme….

It is mite hockey. If the choice is be a Hawk or be a Duck, I choose be a Duck. I'm guessing this coach chooses the other.

Nice job on the pics Jon.  We beat their asses 10-4~!

They do look good, I'm on my way to converting you 🤣  I won my game on the other rink 4-1 with a goal and an assist, must've been the yellow laces.  If you guys ever need a fill  in let me know, you'll get a ton of photos in return lol
