While most are awaiting the return of the legendary CCM Tacks name that will be reincarnated in the form of new skate and stick lines, the CCM Resistance Helmet will be there sharing the spotlight. During these 2014 NHL Playoffs, many of the top players have been rocking the new bucket; LA King’s captain Dustin Brown, Philly’s Vinny Lecavalier and Chicago’s Marian Hossa are just a few of the many.
The CCM Resistance has done quite well being adopted and accepted by NHL’ers, especially since the previous Vector shell was the most popular shell in the whole league. The shell shape is an evolution of the previous Vector but it has a clean, updated and aggressive look. The ventilation has been significantly increased with the use of more ventilation ports with strategic placement. The vents on the top of the helmet show off the protective Impact Pods in the liner, giving it a distinct look that really stands out on TV after you’ve see it once.
