Equipment Licensing

I have been looking into what exactly it takes for an equipment company to become a licensed equipment provider to NHL clubs, but I have had trouble finding pertinent information. I was wondering if anyone here knew anything about the process, or at least where I could find information? I have searched the CBA but I haven't found anything specific to the actual process and what goes into determining whether or not a company will become a licensed equipment provider/distributor.

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Licensing the logos of league and/or teams to use on equipment -- contact the NHL HQ in NYC (or Toronto).

Now, if you want to supply equipment to the league (ice resurfacers to gloves), start by contacting the league. Player equipment has to be certified before it can be used.


(It would not be in the CBA)

If your product/service transcends individual team sponsorships & marketing elements, try NHL Enterprises based in New York as per the link above. Again, depending on what your offering, the NHLPA has several programs that provide for creative marketing solutions, along with Hockey Canada & USA, NCAA, the CHL etc....
