Hockey Parents Save Money This Season by Shopping for Used Hockey Equipment on

Despite the NHL lockout this season, hockey rinks across Canada will be busy this winter with many parents looking for ways to save on expensive equipment for their children. and its network of local Canadian sites is helping Canadian parents through their online classified sites that can lead to big potential savings.

Hockey continues to be the most expensive sport to play and can be very hard on parents. With kids continuing to outgrow their equipment the cost of new hockey gear ranges from $300 to $1,000 each hockey season while new hockey skates for competitive players can cost upwards of $700. New gloves cost more than $100 and single composite hockey sticks range from $60 to over $200.

“It’s getting more expensive to play hockey and even harder on parents to put their kids through each season,” said Erin Richards, Marketing Coordinator at UsedEverywhere. “We’re hoping to help assist with some of those costs and that parents will both buy and sell their used hockey equipment.”
