Co-Founder Nate DiCasmirro started his playing career in the USHL earring a hockey scholarship to St. Cloud State University. Nate plated 4 seasons for the Huskies earring all WCHA 2nd team and sits in the top10 of all time points in SCSU history. After college Nate signed with the Edmonton Oilers and play the next 6 + yeas in the AHL before moving to Europe and playing another 10+ years in Sweden, Italy, Austria, England and Slovenia. Nate was also fortunate to represent Team Italy for 5 years and playing in the IIHF A Pool World Championships and on 2 Olympic Qualifying Teams.
In all Nate played over 1,000 pro games played over 17 years of pro hockey.
Co – founder Conor Sutton grew up playing hockey in Minnesota and went on the play college hockey at Augsburg University. Conor has been coaching youth players for the past 10 years and is a USA Hockey Level 5 certified coach.
Over the years of evolution of hockey and hockey stick technology, many things changed from the old days of woods sticks – one in particular, the feel of the puck. Nate never forgot that feel of the puck with wood sticks which is why he set out to find a solution. Tired of that hard feel and the puck bouncing over the blade because of the stiffness of the new stick blades.
With Conor working a day job in Los Angels and Nate playing professional hockey all over the world, they managed to find time to work and develop the softest tape in hockey. While Nate was playing pro hockey, in his spare time he would work with tape manufactures all over the world to meet PuckStyle’s strict standards of feel, quality and durability. PuckStyle Hockey tape was tested by Pro European players, NHL players, youth players in Minnesota and by Nate himself.
Just like his playing days, Nate’s attention to detail has now produced the worlds softest hockey tape, something we at PuckStyle are proud to out our logo on.
PuckStyle can truly say our products are for hockey players designed by hockey players.
To All Your Success On The Ice.
