Vancouver Island Locals Become New Western Canadian Distributors

September 13, 2012, Duncan, BC (ISN) – Duncan, BC local business owners, Roger Pettersson and Gord Piercey, of G&R Sport Services have become the new Western Canadian Distributors for Fischer Sports Composite Hockey Sticks, recently introduced to the North American market.

Pettersson and Piercey, will be providing the latest in composite hockey sticks which have been extensively used in the European Pro Leagues (including Finnish and Swedish Elite), and the KHL since 1988. Further details may be found on the Fischer Hockey page at G&R Sport Services’ website:

As one of the leading manufacturers of ski equipment and sporting goods, Fischer Hockey claims to have developed a composite hockey stick which is less likely to break, and that is 30% stronger than other brands due to what is referred to as their ‘Cap Technology’, in addition, being offered at a lower price point. They’ve also recently become one of the official suppliers for both the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHL), and the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL), which bodes well for the company as it begins to make its mark into the highly competitive market of composite hockey sticks, in North America.
