Our Goal

The primary purpose of our ice hockey science research group is to evaluate the ergonomic and mechanical function of skates, sticks and protective equipment with respect to human skill performance and safety.

A research partnership with Bauer Hockey Corp. and the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) provides both financial and testing materials support and has allowed for the development of a unique graduate biomechanics program focused on human performance measures of ice hockey equipment.
