Sher-Wood Hockey Inc. Returns As A Partner Of The CHL

May 20, 2010 - Central Hockey League (CHL) News Release

The Central Hockey League (CHL), in conjunction with Sher-Wood Hockey Inc., announced today that the two companies will extend their partnership for a sixth consecutive season keeping the Sherbrooke, Quebec based company as a part of the exclusive program to supply the CHL's teams and players with sticks, pants and gloves. The two companies originally partnered in the spring of 2004.

Sher-Wood Hockey Inc. specializes in the design and manufacturing of ice hockey sticks and protective equipment.
