What the Puck?

With this weekend’s games Vs Hudson postponed we thought you might to want learn about the pucks we use during our hockey games. Our pucks are sponsored by Connexus Credit Union and kept frozen in our freezer in the coaches office (photo below). Our scorekeepers (Linda and Candy) keep our pucks in an ice bucket during games. Fun fact: When the puck leaves the ice and goes out of play and into the stand it can be kept as a souvenir and we also sell pucks at the merchandise stand. Fun fact 2: The Riverkings have made design changes to their game pucks every year expect the first two seasons. Fun fact 3: Bull’s Eye Credit Union and now Connexus Credit Union has been our puck sponsor since we start in 2014. Ice hockey requires a hard disk of vulcanized rubber. A standard ice hockey puck is black, 1 inch (25 mm) thick, 3 inches (76 mm) in diameter, and weighs between 5.5 and 6 ounces (156 and 170 g). Pucks are often marked with silkscreened team or league logos on one or both faces. Pucks are frozen before the game to reduce bouncing during play.
