Hockey Stick Exchanges on NHL Benches

Its at the point of the hockey game where every inch matters, time on the clock is counting down, you have your top players on the ice, and.......a stick breaks! On one side of the ice Panic sets in, on the other opportunity knocks.  The dart to the bench to replace the stick is undoubtedly a phenomenon in sports, and one of the many reasons why an equipment manager should be one of the more carefully selected members of the staff.

I can tell you it happens a lot during the game, but this Sports Illustrated issue dives right in, with interviews from some of the best players/and equipment managers in the game!

I have worked with Hockey Canada, the Vancouver 2010 Olympics, Hamilton Tiger-Cats, and Brock University. But now I'm all about hockey sticks. A passion and love for sticks as a child has blossomed into a full on obsession as an adult (if you can call me that).
