As you might know the legendary Hespeler Hockey stick factory, known through a variety of names over the last century is closing in Hespeler. Thus ending the title the world's oldest continuing operating hockey stick factory. This iconic photo of a Hespeler Minor Hockey team getting a tour of the plant. This photo is especially interesting as this floor of sticks was wiped out and the majority of the sticks disappeared.. All these sticks are the ones kept by the factory to recreate the curve,etc, when a player ordered a new one again. There are NHL players names on sticks you will see when you zoom in on photo. A small portion of the sticks ended up in Lens Mills store in town.
