Owner-operator, Traver McLeod, expanded his hockey shop from Missoula to the Seattle area and in doing so reached out to see how Hockeywolf-Lacrossewolf could give back to the community. Since then, Hockeywolf has become the official equipment supplier for SYHA, including assisting SYHA in outfitting one of our scholars in need of new equipment.
“Hockeywolf started as a one-man show in a little mall store in Missoula, Montana and has grown to be an international team sales dealer and 4-location retail business. Our growth continues to be based on two principles: service to our customers and love of hockey. Our employees are trained and motivated to assist every level of player and team.
We make shopping easy and enjoyable, whether you’re just looking for a perfect sharpening or a set of custom jerseys and gloves for your entire association. It’s our pleasure to see people feeling comfortable and looking good, playing the sport we all love.”
Based in Toronto, Canada, Bladetech Hockey provides high-tech hockey skate blades that are scientifically proven to provide a speed boost. Their patented Flex Force Advantage reduces impact pressure on joints, allowing players to play faster, longer.
The story begins in 2013…
Jeff Azzolin, a University of Waterloo Engineering student analyzed the hockey skate market over the past 2 decades and quickly realized the major developments in technology were only found in the skate boot itself. The blade holders and blades have stayed relatively the same, no matter if you were paying $100 or $1,000.
He was driven by the question: “How can we make the ENTIRE skate better?”. Jeff thought that he could create a better skate by looking at the relationship between the blade holder and the blade itself.
Taking inspiration from many sports technologies, especially speed skating’s CLAP SKATE, he created the first prototype: a spring-loaded blade holder. A few iterations later led to the creation of the Flex Force Advantage, the only flexible hockey skate blades scientifically proven to give skaters a speed boost.
The rest, as they say, is history…
