Rumors have been flying around for the pasts several months about Reebok’s passing of the torch to CCM, and even the possibility of leaving the hockey industry entirely. While these rumors still can’t exactly be confirmed, when we were told that this year’s Ribcor stick would be shedding its Reebok markings for a new CCM look, we weren’t exactly surprised.
The new CCM Ribcor 40K picks up right where its predecessor (the Reebok Ribcor) left off. The name of the game is still the same – to bring you a stick that’s easier to load and more efficient at generating power More >
After a decade without, CCM has brought the legendary Tacks skate line back! Personally, I haven’t skated in the old “Tackaberry” skates that everyone has come to know and love, but one thing that is for sure, CCM has made some huge improvements in its newest set of jets. So, what exactly do the Tacks skates have going for them? Skating in my very own pair of Tacks has given me insight on the technological advancements that CCM has implemented in its skate.

There are many perks to working in the hockey equipment industry. We often get to see unreleased product months before the public, we benefit from awesome discounts on gear, and we roll hard with dual monitors here in the office, but most of us are in the industry simply because we love the game.
Passing the awesomeness of hockey onto the next generation (and the feeling of doing one’s part to grow the greatest game in the world) has always been the most rewarding part of this industry. Outfitting a youngster that may go on to love the game for the More >

We’ve all tried the golf ball, the weighted ball, the puck with balls in it, the real puck on a shooting board and even shooting off that patch of ice in the driveway when it gets cold enough. The one thing I can honestly say about all of those attempts at recreating that on-ice feel, is that they all fell a bit short. At the end of the day, in my mind at least, your off-ice training puck has to look like a puck, and it sure as heck needs to feel like one too… Oh, and don’t forget, it More >
We use the term “big game” for a reason. Many might not understand the emotional investment we have after 82 games. The same way our club has made sacrifices, we’ve made sacrifices! With the playoffs in full swing, it only feels natural to touch on the topic of “How to watch the big game”. Keep the following factors in mind in order to maximize your viewing enjoyment this playoff season.
Whether it’s in the privacy of your own home, at your favorite sports bar, or live in person, where you choose to view your big game may have a drastic effect More >
I feel like a kid on Christmas when looking at this year’s first round matchups. You have your usual suspects, as well as some fresh new faces this postseason, both of which are sure to be a blast to watch. So, without further ado, I’m about to drop some bold predictions…
Boston Bruins vs. Detroit Red Wings Dougie Hamilton will have more points than Pavel Datsyuk…. Yeah, I said it. Boston simply seems to have it all at the moment. Detroit will be lucky if they don’t get swept. Bruins in five.
Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Montreal Canadiens Ryan Malone will be cleared of More >
