I hear'd that Forwards use white tape and Defenseman use black tape?

Is that true or how does hcokey tape work?

Everyone uses whatever color tape they want. I guess most forwards would use black tape since it is harder for the goalie to keep track of a black puck against black tape (or at least, that's what they say), but it's really just preference. I can't think of anyone in the NHL that uses red or any of those other colors, but I am sure there are one or two that have.

I believe that the NHL rules require the tape on the blade to be black.

Nope.

You don't even have to use real tape in the NHL. There's something else, that I can't remember the name of, that Chris Mason on the Blues and one of the Canucks use that is just like one solid piece...I'll try to find it.


EDIT: Found the other thing. It's called "blade tape". http://www.bladetape.ca/. It's odd-looking, and I don't think I would use it, but whatever.

I was a forward and used black tape. I didn't have a particular reason why...maybe it was because my stick was black. idk...

thats what i've heard as well. supposedly white tape is used by defenders since its hard to see on the ice.

I used the bladetape. It was really good. (And you can get it in about 10 colours) The only reason I quit using it, is because the top and bottom of the blade isn't covered, so the blade took a beating. But as far as control, etc, I really liked it. I just need to make my sticks last as long as I can at $150.00 each. If I was in the NHL :shock1: , I'd use it for sure.

I mostly play ball hockey, thus I don't tape my blade..

By the way, with the white and black tape, is there any difference besides the colour? Does one generally have more or less grip than the other, or...?
