Repairing Hockey Sticks

Hey, I'm pretty new to playing hockey and I broke a stick for the first time. It's a wooden stick, not a composite. It broke right at the top of the blade where it meets the shaft. I don't think I can repair it at all but I wanted to ask around before I toss it out for the garbage man to take care of. Anyone know of any way to fix it? Thanks!

Absolutely none. If it was a composite you could possibly turn it into a shaft and plug in a new blade, Or there are specialized products to repair them, but there is absolutely no way to mend a wood stick.

Nope. You need to get a new one. When I first started I wondered too, but you just can't. It'd be cheaper and less hassle to just get a new wood stick.

That's what I figured. Fortunately I have a few extra and hopefully a new composite or two for Christmas. Thanks!
