The Canadian Hockey Expo celebrated its 2nd annual event September 23-24, 2017 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. A consumer show for all things hockey, this expo caters to everyone involved in the hockey community in Manitoba. Inspired by the Let’s Play Hockey Expo, taking place in Minnesota every year, the Canadian Hockey Expo has added a Canadian spin to another one of HockeyShot’s event partners. Players, parents, coaches and enthusiasts alike all came out to celebrate the great Canadian sport and try out HockeyShot’s Revolution Tiles, among many other popular products.

We are so proud to be an official sponsor of this event, which helps bring even more awareness and accessibility to hockey in Winnipeg. This year HockeyShot had a whopping 405 square feet of space at the event, and everyone brought their skates to test out the artificial skating surface! It was a fun filled weekend for everyone in attendance, while gaining some new skills and product knowledge.

The Canadian Hockey Expo caters to players looking to improve their game for the upcoming season, up & comers looking for a competitive edge, or those looking to learn from the best professional hockey stars and professional trainers. By working to bring together everyone in the community through a shared love of hockey, hockey families in Winnipeg continue to grow and to gain more recognition.

The Canadian Hockey Expo is supported by Hockey Manitoba. Hockey Manitoba was established in 1914, the same year as the foundation of Hockey Canada. Hockey Manitoba sponsors events such as the Scotiabank Girls Hockeyfest, the WHL Poe Skills Combine and the 2018 Manitoba Games. These events bring newsworthy hockey competitions all around Manitoba and help both boy and girl hockey players to achieve their hockey dreams.

Not only did HockeyShot provide a massive indoor skating rink for anyone to try at the Canadian Hockey Expo, we also gave away tons of free hockey stuff. These included our Puck Stopper Edges, Extreme Dryland Pucks, and Sauce Catchers. Attendees of the Canadian Hockey Expo also received a HockeyShot unique promo code which gave them 20% OFF all HockeyShot Products. We think that’s a pretty sweet deal for an expo that is free for kids under 18!

The Canadian Hockey Expo was able to use our donated products off the ice as well. The East Side Hockey Academy, located in Selkirk Manitoba, partnered with Hockey Manitoba to bring some HockeyShot training aids to their hockey school practice drills and hockey training obstacle course. Feedback was very positive as they enjoyed using the Attack Triangle Pro, 37” Passer Pro and HS Extreme Danglers. The HS Extreme Danglers are also a favorite of David Desharnais of the Montreal Canadians, good choice Lord Selkirk Fishermen ;)

During the Breast Cancer Golf Tournament in Selkirk, Manitoba, Hockey Shot’s products also took on another life. During the tournament the Hockey Shot Extreme Hockey Goal, All Star Dryland Flooring Tiles and Extreme Shooting Tarp were used on the 15th hole, we hope they got a clean sweep!

HockeyShot can’t wait to continue our partnership with the Canadian Hockey Expo in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and look forward to bringing our new products to all the hockey players of Manitoba, Canada and the world.
