MAPLE LEAFS, BAUER AND PADSKINZ SPECIAL EVENING!!!
On March 18 2017, the Toronto Maple Leafs played the Chicago Blackhawks at the Air Canada Centre. The game was a special St. Patrick’s Day game, where all the Leafs wore green instead of blue. The Leafs approached us about covering all the blue on Frederik Andersen’s gear to match the mask he had done for this special occasion. After working with the great folks at Bauer, we were able to fully print / reproduce the Bauer OD1N graphic for his gear in green on our PadSkinz material. After being professionally installed by our company president in the Leafs equipment room, there’s no way to see the difference. The Leafs and Bauer were extremely happy with the look and performance of our PadSkinz but this was a special occasion game / print so we are not able to offer this graphic to our great customers unfortunately. It was an honour to work with Bauer and the Leafs and we look forward to doing it all again!
Want to have a split pad logo on your pads? We offer custom printing right on our PadSkinz material. We can create split pad logos, team logos and anything else you can think of. All we require from you is a high res file of your image and the dimensions you want it to be. We’ll print it and send it to you so all you have to do is peel the backing off and stick it to your gear! For more details, please see our Custom PadSkinz page here:

This proud Canadian company started out at the beginning of 2011 with a goal in mind. To create a solution for goalies that needed a colour change to their goal pads and gloves. As most parents, kids and goalies know, it’s very expensive to change gear especially when it’s just for the sake of colours. As a goalie myself for the past 30+ years, I have lived this nightmare many times over.
There have been other solutions to this problem along the way like leather dyes and duct tape but none of them work for more than a few games. When we created PadSkinz, we knew we had a winner. We found the thinnest, lightest and most durable top material we could find with a wide range of colours. We tested many, many adhesives before we found the perfect one that would stay stuck in all situations. We included tracing paper for our customer’s convenience so they could create a template to cut out of the PadSkinz material. Since mid-2013, the word about PadSkinz has spread like wildfire, due to the great concept and the high quality of our product.
Fast forward to today, over 7 years later, and you’ll find our flagship product “PadSkinz” being used by 25 NHL teams, countless minor pro teams, in World Championships like the 2014 Sochi Olympics on Ryan Miller‘s pads, in European leagues with ads on the pads, in beer leagues, in kids leagues, in stores, and the list goes on….
While we’re on the topic of invention, in July / August 2014, we released our first new products since PadSkinz called “PalmSkinz“, “GripSkinz” and “PantSkinz“. PalmSkinz are sheets of the same Nash material used on most player and goalie palms but with an adhesive backing. GripSkinz are sheets of the same Sure-Grip digital material used on player and goalie palms to help get a better grip on your hockey stick, with an adhesive backing. This will save most hockey players from sending their gloves away to be re-palmed, which is time consuming and expensive. You can either repair, make the palm get a better grip on the stick or make your gloves last longer with our great product. Just cut, peel and stick! PantSkinz are sheets of very similar nylon material used on many hockey pants, gloves, pads, etc, with an adhesive backing. Now you can do repairs or change colours with this amazing Nylon product. We have the thinnest, lightest and easiest to apply adhesive nylon product on the market. Seem too good to be true? It’s not! As always, we have spent CLOSE TO ONE YEAR of R&D and testing on these products at pro hockey levels to ensure it meets our highest levels of quality. Just like PadSkinz, this stuff works! See more under the “PalmSkinz Info”, “GripSkinz Info” or “PantSkinz Info” tab.
If you want the best materials and the best adhesives for hockey equipment, stick with our products at Chameleon Sports. We created the product genre and know it better than anyone else. You can be sure that our future products will all have the same high quality that you have come to expect from us.
