Summer Stickhandling Drills with Marsblade

May 11, 2016 Hockey Blogs No Comments

Two hockey skills that are easy to practice over the summer are stickhandling and shooting. All you need is a smooth surface and a net, and you’re good to go!

Beer Leaguers try Chara’s Stick

April 12, 2016 Hockey Blogs No Comments

A couple of months ago I was browsing Pro Stock Hockey and saw that they had a Zdeno Chara hockey stick up for grabs. At 69″ long (from butt end to heel) it’s the longest, and possibly most unique hockey stick out there. Standing up straight it measures 77″ and is a ridiculous 150 flex. […]
