Shotblockers was started by ex-NHLer, Ken Belanger in 2010 with the intention of creating added skate protection for an injured Vancouver Canucks player. At the time, foot injuries in players were becoming more common as the game became quicker and composite stick technology improved (it was like Al McInnis was firing every shot from the point).
"This product is by far the best protection in the shot blocking protection market. I would recommend them to any D-man, penalty killer or player in general."
- Pat O'Neill - Equipment Manager, Vancouver Canucks
"Great product and wish more of our players would use them. Trainers and equipment managers need to know about this product."
