  • Patent number: 5366219
    Abstract: The hockey puck has a main body portion with opposite parallel surfaces. Ground engaging runners project from each of the opposite base portions of the puck and thus elevate the base surfaces of the puck from the ground to minimize surface contact between the puck and the ground. The ground engaging projections are equally spaced in a circular array at a rim portion of the puck. Openings in the puck concentrate weight at the center and periphery of the puck. The ground engaging projections and the main body portion are formed of different plastic materials, with each plastic selected for the most desirable physical properties and performance characteristics. Thus the ground engaging runners are relatively wear resistant with low ground friction whereas the main body portion is of relatively low hardness and provides the requisite stability and weight to the puck.

  • Patent number: 5303916
    Abstract: The improved hockey stick shaft is of elongated tubular configuration, rectangular in cross section, and having opposite open ends. The tubular shaft is formed by pultrusion of a plurality of discrete layers of bondable material including at least one layer of random strand mat glass fibers, at least two layers of balanced plain weave glass fiber fabric, at least two layers of balanced stitched layered glass fiber fabric, at least one layer of unidirectional carbon fiber roving, and at least one layer of unidirectional glass fiber roving. The layers can be bonded together by a suitable resin, preferably an epoxy resin.
