The progression of hockey sticks

  1. 1. The Progression of Hockey Sticks By: Brian Brown
  2. 2. The Early Years in Hockey (1800’s) This picture shows what a hockey stick looks like in the 1800’s. When hockey first started there were only a few teams but in the early 1900’s more teams decided to join the league. (Tor., Mon., Bos., Chi., NY., Det.)
  3. 3. Hockey in the Early 1900’s This is a picture of what a hockey stick looks like in the early 1900’s. <ul><li>They were made out of wood </li></ul><ul><li>Not carefully constructed </li></ul>
  4. 4. Hockey Sticks in the 1930’s This picture shows what a hockey stick looks like in the 1930’s. <ul><li>Not much different from the stick in the 1900’s </li></ul><ul><li>More carefully designed </li></ul>
  5. 5. Hockey Sticks in the 1950’s * player stick* *Goalie Stick* <ul><li>Most, if not all, sticks were made the same way with almost the same measurements. </li></ul><ul><li>Between the 1930’s and 1950’s they changed the angle of the stick so it became easier to control the puck. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Hockey in the 1970’s Hockey sticks in the 1970’s <ul><li>By now the manufacturers have dialed in on the make of the stick and what wood to use. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Hockey Sticks in the 1990’s This is a picture of a sher-wood hockey stick. Became popular around this time. In the 90’s a new invention of a hockey stick, the composite stick. Not that common then became more popular in the 00’s.
  8. 8. Hockey Sticks Today This is a composite stick and today everyone in the National Hockey League (NHL). When this type of stick was invented I posed more opportunity for scoring goals and was more accurate when shooting.
  9. 9. Future hockey stick In the future I think that they will come out with a stick that has holes in it so the player has a lighter stick and they can shoot faster.
  10. 10. Conclusion <ul><li>In conclusion, I believe that the progression of hockey sticks has helped out the game and it made it more enjoyable and more fun. </li></ul>
