Let's Play Hockey - Floorballplanet, this weekend

This weekend is when the large International Ice Hockey Exhibition - Let's Play Hockey takes place in Las Vegas, NV.

As before Floorballplanet from Texas will participate. And if you look at this map You see (enlarge the page) that this time they will be located close to Stiga, among others.
It is like things go in circles. We do know that as Mr. Andras Ciztrom, a former president of the IFF, arranged some early events for Floorball in Sweden - he involved Table Hockey from Stiga....
Now - just look at the space they use for this years Stiga Table Hockey Tournament? Wow, it is almost the size of Reebok/CCM's stand.
I also wonder what happened to that Floorball table game that was rumored to come too from Stiga a few years ago - maybe a dead project?

I fully suspect that Stiga will show their own Floorball sticks this year too at this event, since we know they have them on the market here in the US. At Floorballcentral we do not know very much more about these sticks from Stiga. Perhaps they look more like sticks for kids, but we will sure evaluate a stick the day we get hold of one.
So two booths related to Floorball at this expo is sure a good development for Floorball in the USA. It would not surprise me if we have even more booths next year...

I have confirmation that FloorballPlanet will show the much hyped Canada Hockey Salming Matrix (the stick we show on an ad up in the right corner on this website) this weekend in Las Vegas.
Cool, to say the least.
I am sure that the Canada Hockey licensed Floorball stick will twist the heads on many many Hockey folks at the Let's Play Hockey Expo in Las Vegas. Ha!

We will try to follow up afterwords with a report on what took place at this large Hockey event in Las Vegas.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
