Montreal, May 29, 2009: Reebok Hockey is pleased to announce it is the title sponsor for the 2009 NHL Combine being held in Toronto from May 26 to 29. As a key event leading up to the NHL Draft, every year the Combine puts over 100 top prospects to the test. The young men vying to be the next generation of NHL stars will be put through a variety of rigorous off-ice assessments set out to measure their fitness levels.
As the exclusive equipment brand of the event, Reebok is outfitting each Combine invitee in Speedwick performance apparel which incorporates PlayDry technology and antimicrobial fibers to manage moisture and inhibit odor causing bacteria. Unlike traditional wicking apparel, the Speedwick Tee feels like cotton and has been designed to help maximize performance.
"We are excited to collaborate with the NHL on the 2009 NHL Combine,” said Chris Gallo, Director of Reebok Performance Apparel. “Because Speedwick is infused with technology and was created for top level athletes, the players participating in this year’s Combine can feel confident that their apparel will perform as well as they do.”
Reebok Hockey's strong presence at this event will further foster its leadership in hockey as the brand associated with the NHL.
