We have been getting a few questions concerning our logo. What does it all mean? Why is it like that? Well it's all simple really. We wanted to have a logo that would incorporate hockey with a shortened version of our name. This eventually led to an acronym with hockey sticks used to form the T, and a hockey helmet sitting on top of the R.
We originally though of THR (The Hockey Resource) but since this is an online website, we started calling the project The Hockey online Resource (THoR). This obviously brought up relations to Thor, the mythical norse god which in our opinion would make quite the power forward.
Due to this resemblance we decided to add wings to the hockey helmet (typical of modern Thor illustrations including the Marvel version of the character) and a hockey puck to represent the o. The puck can be seen as part of the acronym or not. Some interpret the logo as The Hockey Resource (THR) others as The Hockey online Resource (THoR), in the end, there is no right or wrong way!
For the record, it was all Stéphane's work so if you like it, give him a thumbs up!
Here are some different versions of the logo used throughout the internet.

The goaltender glove is the most versatile piece of equipment. Not only is it used to make amazing saves, it is also used to cover up loose pucks and handle the stick. Having a good glove is therefore extremely important to ensure good goaltending performance. This buyer's guide will help you assess which glove is best for you!
Happy 4th of July to our American neighbours! Hope you all have a splendid day and follow all the free agent signings today!

It is time for you to purchase a new set of goaltender leg pads. Perhaps this is even your first set! All the terminology, different sizes, manufacturers and price points available can be quite confusing. For this reason, we have compiled this buyer's guide to help clear things up.
We have just uploaded a new video - Measuring your Ankle to Knee (ATK) length.
This is a measurement used by goaltenders to ballpark the pad size they need to purchase. Although it is by no means the best way to measure for pads, sometimes it is the only method available.
