Once you reach that level, the strength, technique, and slashing tend to wear down sticks quickly.

I would look into two-piece sticks. I like Base hockey blades but haven't used their shafts. If he snaps a stick in half, you can heat and remove the blade and use it in a new shaft, which runs about $100 compared to $220 for a top end stick. They tend to be cheaper than the bigger brands with more options and similar quality.
