Hockey players will do almost anything to excel at their beloved game. Their effort is one that is well respected amongst the sporting world. That effort brings with it a dreaded smell. That smell isn’t to be taken lightly. Remember to take care of your gear, and as a result, take care of yourself.


Pro Stock Hockey created a stench guide for a hockey player at any level — with expertise from NHL trainers and staff — that will help put an end to the smells associated with your gear. Below is the proper way to defend against stench.
