Hockey Shop - Shop, Purchase, Buy Online
Though we Canadians think of "hockey" as synonymous with "ice hockey" (self-styled as the "Coolest Game on Earth"), there are other popular variations of the game of hockey, too: field hockey, road hockey, and rink hockey, to name a few. Each variation has its own distinctive equipment and rules, though all work around the basic principle of pushing a ball or disc into a net with a stick. For example, Ice hockey players sport full equipment to protect them from collisions with the boards set up around the ice rink on which they play, with other players (it is a full contact sport), and to protect them from the puck itself. Field hockey equipment, on the other hand, consists only of a curved stick, shin guards, and sometimes a mouthguard. You can find all of these things at your local hockey shop.
A hockey shop is often specialized in one variant of hockey or another, providing all the equipment and clothing that would be necessary to play. Ice hockey shops offer extensive ranges of equipment, from skates through shin pads and shoulder pads to helmets, for both the players and for the goaltenders, while field hockey shops offer wide selections of sticks and shin guards, balls, and all the necessary clothing. Also, a hockey shop may sell professional hockey merchandise, including shirts and both replica and authentic jerseys.
