What is Waffle?

Another way to describe the goaltender's piece of equipment known as the blocker that covers the hand which holds the goalie stick. In the old days, the blocker resembled a waffle-looking piece of equipment at times.

Sporting Charts explains Waffle

Blockers, or waffles, in this case have transformed from the beginning days when they were heavy, hard-padded and leather-covered rectangular-shaped pieces of equipment to the current-day designs, which feature lightweight foam, curved padding and large cuffs for both protection and blocking ability. Waffle, however, is a somewhat rarely used term to describe the blocker.
