You do want to look for a blade with an ABS core, but it should also either be made with wood or composite. Honestly, the cheaper priced blades are what you need for street hockey. You can still find a lot of Koho and CCM junior blades that are perfect. Some of the old Montreal blades that will work to if you can find them.


Here's a couple of blades that have worked for me:

Once you find the right one for you, buy plenty. They're cheap, probably on their way out, and most importantly you'll go through them quickly if you play often.
I've used those before, I like the eastons' cause they're just a bit lighter than those. But this is only for street hockey so I can scrape as much pavement as I want.
