CCM Tacks Hit Stores: Better Steel, Edge + Attack Angle

The new CCM Tacks goalie skates make their retail debut today, and based on InGoal testing over the past five months, goalies are going to be impressed. Unveiled in the last issue InGoal Magazine, the CCM Tacks brought the technology, performance and reputation of a line already used by top skaters everywhere and rebuilt it completely to benefit goalies everywhere.

For Florida Panthers goaltender Mike McKenna, the education in RVH, or the Reverse-VH, began while he was with the Columbus Blue Jackets organization under the guidance of goaltending coach Ian Clark.

The Vancouver Canucks signed goaltender Jacob Markstrom to a three-year contract extension worth $11 million on Thursday, banking on his belated emergence last season as a sign of things to come for a 6-foot-6 Swedish stopper who was once tabbed the best goaltender not playing in the NHL. Markstrom, 26, is coming off the best season of a career most expected to start sooner, finishing his first full season in the NHL with a 13-14-4 record and .915 save percentage behind a struggling Canucks team that missed the playoffs. In his sixth season since coming over from Sweden, Markstrom played 33 games,...
