BROOKLYN – Toronto-based Bladetech Hockey has signed a partnership agreement with the National Women’s Hockey League and has been designated as the “Official Blade of the NWHL and Official Partner of Women’s and Girls’ Hockey.” As part of the agreement, Bladetech Hockey will provide their high-tech skate blades with the company’s patented Flex Force Advantage to the players of the NWHL’s six teams.

“Bladetech Hockey is honoured to be partnering with the NWHL and we thank Commissioner Rylan, the league, teams and players for this wonderful opportunity,” said Bladetech CEO Anthony Morra. “We are proud to support the best hockey players in the world, which includes NHL all-stars and Stanley Cup champions, and this partnership with the women’s professional hockey league in the U.S. and Canada continues that trend.
