The original Marsh Pegs were 1 5/8 (41.3 mm), but many arenas did not have room between the cooling lines for the 2 (50.8 mm) inserts required.  Therefore, Fred designed stepped pegs to fit into smaller inserts in the ice.  The part that fits into the net for the 1 3/8 (34.9 mm) and 13/16  (20.6 mm) is 1 5/8 (41.3 mm).  These sizes can be used for midget level hockey and above.  (Marsh Pegs should not be used below midget level.)

At the end of the 2001- 2002 season, the National Hockey League requested a longer and thicker peg, so for the 2002-2003 season Fred supplied a new 1 7/8 (47.6 mm) peg.   That 1 7/8 NHL Marsh Peg is stronger than the other sizes and is used exclusively in the National Hockey League. 

Fred also developed another 1 7/8 stepped Marsh Peg that has the same flexibility as the 1 5/8 (41.3 mm)  peg but is two inches longer than the other pegs.  With this peg, 1 7/8 (47.6 mm) goes into the net and 1 5/8 (41.3 mm) into the 2 (50.8 mm) floor insert.   This Marsh Peg (1 7/8") may be used for adult professional hockey including junior leagues but not below that level.

Most arenas in Europe have less space between the cooling lines than North American arenas so they use the smallest 1" (25.4 mm) inserts and the most flexible 13/16" (20.6 mm) Marsh Pegs.

Marsh Pegs come in four sizes:

1 5/8 (41.3 mm),

1 3/8 (34.9 mm),

13/16 (20.6 mm),

plus the 1 7/8 (47.6 mm).
