Gretzky paves forward Floorball to hockey talent - trust us


Gretzky Hockey School now has Floorball+ and Xhockeyproducts as their Corporate partners.
This means a few things like:
- Top talent young Hockey players will have Floorball access at the worlds premier Hockey school next summer - here in America - in Idaho, same place as last summer, but also in LA and STL in USA - as well as in Edmonton (yup) and Toronto for 2015.



But we have more news for YA.
Xhockeyproducts also means Pavel Barber - and if you read this blog you know him already... But with Xhockeyproducts in - and as they will be selling Floorball equipment too sourced via Floorball+ - we for the first time see a current NHL player directly engaged in Floorball in America as Bryce Salvador - the current Captain in the NJ Devils also own Xhockeyproducts together with the former NHL player Peter Ing.

This is a bit remarkable since we thought some European NHL player, raised with Floorball should have seen this coming first? But, Oh baby well - this is probably even better.. Ok Ok, there is a European connection too,,, As Floorball+ will carry the Exel brand - and - if you read this blog you also should know that the former Colorado Avalance player Peter Forsberg owns a position in the Exel Floorball brand (or its sales channel) too.

Then we ask ourselves. What can the little local hockey club out on the empty Floorball frontier do now? They must see what Dallas Stars - but also NOW the Gretzky Hockey School and Xhockeyproducts have up their sleeves too... but to put the burden of innovative forces onto the little Club - might be a rough challenge - so our eyes yet again turn to USA Hockey... Interesting huh? Very interesting from our perspective.

What is next? We will try to look into the offer from both Xhockeyproducts and Floorball+ and hope to be back with deeper material upon - Xhockeyproducts, Floorball+, and Exel.
But Floorball grassrot development at the broader scale - ought to be developed too beyond the initiatives we now face - so let's see.

This story is not about a little funky development for hockey - this story is about a fun-damental change on how Americans will do sports
- trust us.

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!
