CCM© Vector #1 At Stanley Cup Finals
#1 One-Piece Stick, #1 Helmet, # 1 Glove & #1 Pant
Calgary June 1, 2004... With play moving to Tampa Bay, the 2004 Stanley Cup Final stands to be one of the most exciting in years. Everything has come down to a best of three games series and both Calgary and Tampa Bay have what it takes to hoist the Cup. They have what it takes in part because they have overwhelmingly chosen CCM© products, specifically the new CCM© Vector™ skate and sticks.
Team Captains, Jarome Iginla and Dave Andreychuk, both switched to the new CCM© Vector™ Pro Skate along with many of their 15 teammates, including Brad Richards and Vincent Lecavalier. "They are absolutely the lightest and best fitting skates I have ever worn" said Andreychuk, "I can't imagine playing without them now". At the start of the 2003-04 season, CCM© launched the Vector™ Pro. Since then it has become the fastest growing skate in the NHL, with over 100 players wearing it.
The story for the Company's Vector™ 110 and new Vector™ 120 stick has been equally strong. The Vector™ OPS is the #1 one-piece stick in the finals with 41% of players choosing CCM©'s integrated rigidity matrix technology. "The Vector 120 has great feel and balance", said Vincent Lecavalier, "Our bench has become a sea of blue sticks".
Other CCM© products coming out on top at the Stanley Cup Finals are the Tacks© Helmets, Tacks© Gloves and Tacks© Pants. Between Tampa Bay and Calgary, all three categories are dominated by CCM© products. CCM© is also the official jersey and apparel supplier to Tampa Bay and Calgary.
