Play It Again Sports – Winnipeg

Posted in Equipment Sales, Pro Returns with tags , , , , , , , on October 31, 2011 by prostocknation

We get lots of emails from readers each day wanting to know where they can acquire pro stock hockey equipment.

In the previous post I showed off my latest pick ups of a Manitoba Moose pro bag ($99), socks ($15) and gloves ($99.)  With the Atlanta Thrashers relocating to Winnipeg and the Manitoba Moose leaving for St. John’s, the remaining equipment was sold by True North and made available to the public.

On top of selling brand new and used retail sporting goods; Play It Again Sports in Winnipeg also carries a range of pro grade equipment.  You’ll find pro stock equipment from the Atlanta Thrashers, Manitoba Moose, the Canadian World Junior Program and other clubs as well as closeouts from your favorite manufacturers.  They will also be carrying new and used Winnipeg Jets gear once the season is finished.


As with any shop that carries pro gear, the inventory changes often so contact them directly to see what they have in stock for you.

You can find them at:

730 St. Anne’s Road, Unit U
Winnipeg, MB R2N 0A2

October Pick Ups – Manitoba Moose Pro Gear

Posted in Pro Returns, Pro Stock with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 28, 2011 by prostocknation

These are my latest Manitoba Moose purchases:

  • Pro Bag
  • 2 Pairs Reebok Edge Socks (XL)
  • 14′ Reebok (CCM 852 Style) Gloves

What do you all think?  Most of the pro bags I’ve seen are made of vinyl and they rip easily.  This Moose bag has one of the highest quality nylon I’ve ever seen.

Looking for Manitoba Moose gear as well?  We’ll tell you where this weekend!

Posted in Jerseys with tags , , , , , on October 14, 2011 by prostocknation

The Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals honored the late members of the KHL’s Lokomotiv Yaroslavl team tonight.  The jerseys they wore featured the Lokomotiv logo on the right chest and a special patch on the inside hem.  These jerseys are currently being auctioned off and all proceeds will go towards the Lokomotiv player’s children and families.

Jersey Numbers To Be Added To Front Of Helmets

Posted in Gear Sightings with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 10, 2011 by prostocknation

Tony Da Costa, Head Equipment Manager of the Minnesota Wild posted these pictures on his Twitter account (@styleswild) yesterday.

Starting the first game of the regular season, all players (excluding goaltenders) will be required to display numbers on the front of their helmets.  This was confirmed by Schuyler Baehman, the NHL’s Senior Manager of Communications, on Twitter in which he stated:

Player numbers will be added to the front forehead (centered) location of all player helmets at the start of this season.

Front numbers are not required to be placed on goaltenders headgear.

Numbers on the front and back of helmets will measure no less than 1.25” and no more than 2” in height

The new number placement is designed to aid on-ice officials, broadcasters, et al. by providing an additional point of player identification

Also note, this year Easton is another brand that is changing from their familiar “E” logo in favor of the word mark on their helmets.  While many people don’t seem to like the changes at first, Bauer has done this for years.  They stopped using the “Flying B” and few people put up a fight about “BAUER” being written across the front of the helmet.

Are you in favor of these new changes?  Can you name another sport which requires both front and back numbers on helmets?
