JOFA Helmets | Halos of Hockey

Gretzky, Lemieux, Jagr, Selanne, Savard, Sundin, Forsberg, Fleury, Kurri, Housley, Palffy, Salming and Stastny are some of the NHL greats who have worn the JOFA emblem proudly upon their foreheads during some of the highest scoring and most important seasons and careers in NHL history. This blog discusses the JOFA helmet, the different models, who men who wore them, their significance, where to buy and sell them, how to fix and modify them, and why they are icons of hockey excellence.

The JOFA Helmet

After searching all over the internet, I found that there is not a single website or blog dedicated to discussing JOFA helmets. So I decided to create one. There must be a resource that explains these iconic pieces of hockey equipment. Many of the most beloved and greatest hockey players of all time have worn these helmets, these Halos of Hockey, distinguishing them clearly from the rest of the players on the ice. 

Aside from ModSquadHockey and Wikipedia, their is little information to be found regarding JOFA helmets. I do not speak Swedish or Finnish (or any other language other than English for that matter), so maybe there are some resources that have slipped through my fingers, but how would I know anyway?

Love them or hate them, JOFA helmets have saved the skulls of the greatest players to ever play the game. I hope this blog will help inform hockey aficionados out there and provide a resource that readers can share knowledge and memories of these hockey relics. Enjoy!
