Boston Bruins Newest Players – What They’re Wearing




The offseason for the Boston Bruins — and first for new general Manager Don Sweeney — has been quite the rollercoaster thus far. No NHL team has been more active in wheeling-and-dealing this past week than the B’s, and in Day 1 of free-agency yesterday they showed no signs of slowing down.

Having traded one of their marquee players in Milan Lucic, and an up-and-coming defenseman Dougie Hamilton, the shake-up of the B’s as we once knew it is well underway. President Cam Neely and GM Sweeney made a splash and acquired top free agent of 2015 Matt Beleskey from the Anaheim Ducks. They also lured Massachusetts native Jimmy Hayes from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Reilly Smith and Marc Savard. And just a few days prior they landed agitator extraordinaire Zac Rinaldo from the Philadelphia Flyers for a third-round draft pick in 2017.

Now that we know the deal(s), let’s get to the important stuff — what hockey gear are they wearing and using?

This Old Hockey Bag: Sherwood 5030 Feather-Lite

this-old-bagThink Old Faithful. Released over 60-years ago, the Sherwood 5030 Feather-Lite hockey stick is still going strong today. You most likely had one of these beauties and it would be a safe bet to say that almost every hockey player since 1965 has used this stick at one point or another. Personally, I used one as a Mite and Squirt, PP19. I loved it so much that in 2011, I bought one just to have in the arsenal.

Originally produced out of Sherwood-Drolet in Quebec, Canada, Sherwood moved its wooden hockey stick production overseas in 2007 to focus on Louisville TPS composite — now re-branded as Sherwood. They were one of the last standing wood hockey stick manufactures in Canada, so to say people were upset to see them leave would be an understatement.

Let’s take a look at just a handful of famous NHL players who have used one of these classics hockey sticks:
