Gearing Up For Let’s Play Hockey Expo

Posted by Joe Blair on Wednesday, March 7th, 2012 | 1 Comment »

As we approach the Let’s Play Hockey Expo, we are filled with many mixed emotions…excitement, anticipation and enthusiasm are the easy ones to control but we are also nervous and scared. Why? Because this is the first time we will be at the Expo and the unknown is a little scary in certain ways.

We have participated in numerous events and shows over the years and these feelings seem to be the same leading up to new opportunity. You can say it’s sort of like the first day of school….you’re excited to see friends  but, you are also scared of a new teacher who you don’t know.

We were drawn to the Lets Play Hockey Expo due to its reputation in the hockey world. It takes place alongside the Minnesota State High School Hockey Championships and the expo sees over 40,000 people walk through its doors. Everyone from young players to college scouts to professional players seem to walk the halls to see what’s new and exciting.

Attendees to the 2012 Expo will not be disappointed as they roam the halls. They will have the opportunity to see hockey greats such as Claude Lemieux and Brett Hull, have the opportunity to win hundreds of door prizes and bid on a silent auction with proceeds benefiting the Herb Brooks Foundation.

Of course our great partners at BAUER will be on site showing all their latest and greatest gear including the new RE-AKT helmet which will be available in May.  It is the first hockey helmet designed specifically to manage rotational forces and provide protection against ALL hits in hockey.  The RE-AKT helmet features BAUER’s proprietary SUSPEND-TECH liner allowing the helmet to move independently from the head during angular impacts to help better manage all hockey hits.  Featuring PORON® XRD™ Technology, the BAUER RE-AKT leads the way in protection, comfort and innovation.

So as we pack our bags, it is hard to control the emotions but with all the great people and happenings taking place during the expo, we are sure to have a great show.

If you’re heading to the expo, make sure you stop by the PORON XRD Extreme Impact Protection booth to find out about the great prizes we’ll be giving away.
