How It's Made - Part Three

Continuing a series I had started in 2007, I thought it would be wise if I brought some more equipment info to the forefront. The amount of work that goes into creating hockey equipment is immense, and these articles were meant to bring highlight the science and work that goes into making equipment.

Part One shows how pucks, hockey gloves, and wooden sticks are made. Part Two shows how goalie pads and composite sticks are made, and how to relace a goalie glove. Check these out if you like.

Today, I present more hockey equipment being made in front of your eyes.

We may take some of this stuff for granted when we walk into an arena, but clearly there is a lot of work that goes into making this game so great. Hockey Blog In Canada salutes all those that work behind-the-scenes to make hockey such a great game! I plan on continuing more of these looks into the behind-the-scenes stuff, so watch for more of these.

Until then, keep your sticks on the ice!
