Sports Experts – Centre Commercial Rockland, Mont Royal, Quebec

Posted in Equipment Sales, Pro Returns with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 12, 2012 by prostocknation

Sports Experts is the largest sporting goods retailer in Quebec.  They are known as a big box store that carries closeout merchandise.  With Sports Experts being grouped under the FGL Sports Ltd. umbrella (Sportchek, Sport Mart, etc.), Pro Stock hockey gloves were one of the last things I expected to find at their Centre Commercial Rockland location in Mont Royal, Quebec.

Hamrlik Habs 10K, Kubina Thrashers Leather 4-Rolls, Antropov All Star Game 10K:

SE1
Reebok 9000 Pros in various colors:

SE2
Chris Campoli Ottawa Senators Reebok 9000 Pros

SE3

Colton Orr Toronto Maple Leafs Reebok 9000 Pros (note the digital overlay!)

SE4

Sports Experts also had some Retail Edge 1.0 Habs jerseys in both colorways going for half price (around $150 or so.)

SE5

Sports Experts was a nice surprise.  They weren’t on my list of places to visit while I was in Quebec but the next time I am back east I will definitely drop by a few more of their stores to see what unique gear is available.

Maple Leafs & Purolator Jersey Sponsorship Deal

According to an article in the Toronto Star, starting today the Toronto Maple Leafs will be sporting a Purolator patch on their practice jerseys.  It’s not the first time this has happened in the NHL but this sponsorship deal will bring in a new revenue stream for the club and we expect more teams to follow suit in the future.

————————————————————————————————————————————-

How would you react if the NHL permitted corporate sponsors to place advertisements on game jerseys as well?  While it doesn’t sound like a very North American thing to do, AHL teams have had sponsor patches located on the right chest for years.

Toronto Maple Leafs Semi-Annual Equipment Sale

Posted in Equipment Sales with tags , , , , on May 14, 2011 by prostocknation

As tweeted by RealSports today:

Save the Date! Maple #Leafs Semi-Annual Equipment Sale ~ Saturday June 4th – 10am-4pm New & used equipment + dressing room access!! #NHL

Prices are generally a bit higher than most teams but with a fan base like Toronto’s, people are willing to pay the premium.  Even if you don’t intend on buying anything it’s still quite the experience to visit a pro dressing room.
