ice hockey

We are visiting Toronto in August with 2 teenage lads who play junior ice and roller hockey here in UK. Anyone know good outlets selling the equipment in either Toronto, Ottowa or Montreal? Any ice rinks open during the summer? Any suggestions of activities to keep them (and parents) happy would be much appreciated - they are 16 and 17 years old.

Also where's the best place for a trip white water rafting for 2 oldies and 2 teens?

Hey, there is a great sports store called Sportchek you will find this store in Toronto and Ottawa but not in Montreal, they sell everything from skates to helmets, my kids also play hockey so this is where I buy my equipment.

Hello. I can't help you with outlets for buying hockey equipment, however your sons may get a kick out of visiting The Hockey Hall of Fame. It is located at 30 Yonge Street in Toronto. Their Phone number is: (416) 360-7765

Here is a link to their website and there seems to be a fair bit of information on this site


Also, another idea would bring the boys to Wayne Gretzky's Restaurant. Here is a link to the website http://www.gretzkys.com/setwindow.html

It has quite a bit of hockey memorabilia plus I believe there is a store to purchase hockey shirts and such. The website could give you more details.

Good Luck!

You can also try "Play it again Sports" -a second hand equipment store that has lots of branches around town. They have a website.

Good luck!

S for actual icetime for the kids you might want to check out : www.icesports.com . This site will show you some of the different rinks in the Toronto area and they sometimes have pick up hockey or even hockey camps during the August months.

As for hockey equipment, there is a store near Don Mills Road and Eglinton Ave E. which is called Just Hockey. It's the only place I buy my hockey stuff and has a lot more items than the big box sports stores such as Sportchek.

The Just Hockey outlet noted above is on Barber Greene Road, just west of Don Mills Road. It's right next to the head office of Tilley Endourables, the source for Tilley's famous indestructible travel hat and other practical travel wear - worth a visit while the kids look at the hockey gear.
