HockeyStickMan Acquires Raven Hockey

July 20, 2023
HockeyStickMan is proud to announce the acquisition of Raven Hockey, a pioneering force in the youth hockey industry. Raven Hockey was founded by three passionate hockey dads who sought to revolutionize the game by crafting superior hockey sticks for their children. Today, their vision has not only transformed the world of youth hockey but also empowered players to reach their full potential on the ice.
Through this acquisition, Raven Hockey sticks will now be available as a direct-to-consumer product from a leading online hockey store, making them more affordable, accessible, and available than ever before.
"I've admired Raven for years. They were the catalyst for change in kids hockey sticks, and every other company has followed suit" said Joey Walsh, President of HockeyStickMan. "Under HSM, Raven will become a direct to consumer brand, where we will continue to offer pro quality sticks for kids at that unbeatable HSM price we strive for."

What sets Raven Hockey apart is its unwavering commitment to understanding the unique needs of young players from their perspective. While others focused on adult players and worked downward, Raven Hockey prioritized the experience of first-time players and built their innovative hockey sticks upwards from there. This shift in approach revolutionized the game and empowered players with the confidence to unleash their full range of skills.
Raven Hockey had a number of firsts that are commonplace in today's stick market; World's first 20 flex Junior stick, World's first Flex fitting system and the World's lightest Junior stick. 

Raven Hockey extends beyond simply creating a different stick. It is about equipping players with the perfect tools to thrive on the ice - ensuring the right weight, height, and flex for optimal performance. These key parameters didn't just result in superior hockey sticks; they foster moments of celebration on the ice and elated high-fives in the stands. Raven Hockey is a symbol of excellence and empowerment, both on and off the rink.

This exciting transition to new ownership opens up boundless opportunities to build upon the foundation laid by Raven Hockey and take youth hockey to even greater heights. The synergy between Raven Hockey's pioneering spirit and HockeyStickMan's expertise promises an exhilarating future for the brand.

"We are immensely proud of what we have accomplished with Raven Hockey," said Sean Reily, Co-Founder of Raven Hockey. "With HockeyStickMan at the helm, we are confident that the legacy of innovation and empowerment will continue to flourish. We eagerly anticipate the incredible journey that lies ahead. As we embark on this new era, the three hockey dads at Raven Hockey would like to thank the passionate hockey community, dedicated customers, and all stakeholders who have supported us throughout the years".
