The first ever New England Hockey Expo took place at Sullivan Arena on the campus of St. Anselm College in Manchester, New Hampshire on August 18 & 19, 2018. HockeyShot was happy to join as an official sponsor of the expo, and we saw over 1,000 attendees. The New England Hockey Expo is a consumer show for all things hockey. Featuring top hockey equipment manufacturers with products available to test and try, this expo is a great time for anyone interested in the sport of hockey.

If an expo is showcasing the best equipment in the business, you know HockeyShot will be there! When the New England Hockey Expo was hosted in 2017 at the Radisson Hotel Downtown Manchester, HockeyShot products were used in all three tents. With one tent dedicated to sporting our Skate-able Synthetic Ice – Revolution Tiles - demo area, and two skills tents tracking hardest shot measured by the HS Extreme Hockey Radar, and testing accuracy by using the HS Extreme Goal with Shooter Tutor, it was a day of challenges and fun for all.


During the New England Hockey Expo, NHL celebrities joined us to have an autograph session for attendees. These celebrities included Adam McQuaid (Boston Bruins), Zach Sanford (St. Louis Blues), and Tim Schaller (Boston Bruins), and the original ‘Goon’ Doug Smith. Follow the New England Hockey Expo on Facebook for more updates about NHL players attending the Expo in 2018!

In addition to testing out your skills on the ice, the region’s top clubs and organizations that provide hockey from youth level to junior level are there to interact with parents and players alike. HockeyShot always looks forward to being able to interact with hockey families in New England to bring them the best training equipment, all while giving away a few freebies of course to increase the brand exposure!

This event features clubs, organizations, tournament directors and skill development providers to connect with players and teams from all levels of play, and vice versa. There will also be a youth 3v3 street hockey tournament, hosted by Easter Seals. Established in 1936, the Easter Seals offer more than 90 programs including autism services, inclusive child care and early intervention, special education, medical rehabilitation, camping and recreation, and veteran services. The youth 3v3 street hockey tournament will be played outside and a chance for some to have some fun on a less competitive level, all for a great non-profit cause!

Once again, HockeyShot is very excited to be named the Official Prize Sponsor of 2nd Annual New England Hockey Expo. HockeyShot will have twice the size booth as 2017, with prizes on display and brand-new training aids to demo! Join us August 18th & 19th at the New England Hockey Expo as we help bring HockeyShot to new audiences and promote learning, competing and having fun at our favorite sport.
