We have recognized the challenge of protecting the athlete from foot and ankle injury in a time where pucks are being shot at rates never before seen by the average player since the introduction of the Synergy composite stick in late 1999. We recognize there are presently products in the space that also look to address this reality of the high-impact sport of hockey.
The Cost of Blocking Shots
Shots blocked in the NHL doubled since 1998. In 2014 the average NHL team lost 252 man-games, and more than $7 million in salary per season due to injuries.
