Hockey Buying Guide

Hockey  is a fast-paced and physical sport where the object of the game is to score more goals than the opposing team.  With fast movement on the rink, a stick in hand, and body checking allowed, it gets dangerous and rowdy out there!  Players  and fans  both thrive off of the hype of it all, but please, let's be logical and take the proper safety precautions first.  We don't want anyone losing more teeth than necessary.
