We are a small town family who grew up on a farm with a hockey rink in the front yard. To say that we love hockey would be an understatement. Peter is a former trainer, coach, and minor hockey president, Joey is a former rep/junior level player with a Sport Management Degree and has worked for Hockey Canada, Vancouver Canucks and the Vancouver Olympic Committee. Ashley is a former player, Nick played all the way up through NCAA and Pro. Dustin played all the way up through NCAA, was drafted by the Montreal Canadians, and now works in the NHL.
We are fortunate to be able to say that the game has given us a lot back. But growing up hockey was expensive, if it wasn't for an old man who worked all the time and a mother who spent her life in the rinks we wouldn't be able to do it, what's worse is that if it were today we wouldn't have been able to afford competitive hockey!

So in Dec 2010 we started Walshy Stick Repair as a way to give people lower priced options on good quality sticks. We would utilize the many connections we had built throughout the game to source top end sticks, repair them using a proven method, and make them available to amateur and recreational level players in our community.
Since then we have built HockeyStickMan Inc. into one of the largest online hockey stores in North America, and continue to grow simply based on word of mouth! We now offer the following:
How we keep prices low?
We continue to operate with the same principals in mind that made us successful from day 1........Keep all operating costs to a minimum, we do not have fancy storefronts and our website is in house designed and managed. We do not do any paid marketing, promotions, or advertising. We simply put our products out there at our best possible price and rely on word of mouth, which in the hockey world, is everything!
Our Mission.....To provide amateur and recreational level players with top end sticks at unbeatable prices. Mission Accomplished.
The Pro Blackout series has evolved to include gloves, skates, and goalie sticks! These high-quality items are manufactured without the branding, giving you access to the best quality gear, while not having to pay top-dollar for the name on them.
