Toronto, Ontario (May 6, 2022) — Canadawide Sports Inc. (“Canadawide Sports”) is pleased to announce the acquisition of the HockeyShot Inc. 
(“HockeyShot”) brand. HockeyShot is an ecommerce based sporting goods business best known for its innovative hockey training equipment, including synthetic ice and skills training tools for stickhandling, passing, and shooting. Canadawide will utilize its sales, warehouse, and fulfillment capabilities to drive distribution of HockeyShot’s products and will also leverage HockeyShot’s proven ecommerce and digital marketing knowhow to support its other brands.  

HockeyShot was founded in New Brunswick in 1995 by a father and son who were dedicated to developing training tools for hockey players to enhance their skills. Their focus on innovation led them to be the first-to-market with various training devices and saw HockeyShot become a leading contributor to the wave of creative skills seen in the game in recent years. HockeyShot was also an early adopter of ecommerce in conjunction with producing online and social media training content and personalities, which has resulted in a loyal following of fans and customers.
  
“With Canadawide Sports’ operational and financial support, HockeyShot is now capable of meeting the growing demand for its products and has the capacity to continue to invest in innovation. The HockeyShot brand will be able to leverage the infrastructure we have at Canadawide Sports for sales and distribution. Additionally, other brands we own will benefit from the e-commerce and marketing skills of the HockeyShot team. It is a very exciting time of growth for us here” said Shawn Fuller, the president of Canadawide Sports.
