If I'm not mistaken, Mission was either bought out by Itech or merged with Itech. Bauer then bought Itech.

Mission was bought out by Bauer. Sticks, skates, and protective have all been discontinued.

May still be able to get a few types of sticks and a glove or two in 2010.

The Mission "rep" was not 100%, she said that was the "plan".

A few LHS's by me are still getting Mission stuff in, just at a fraction of the number they used too. Hell, they get more Mission then TPS.

Any mission stuff you're still getting or seeing is leftovers. They're not producing any more.

Bauer will be using tech mission had in their new gear going forward. Already you see mission influence on the X:60 gloves, for instance (and for those not familiar with the wonders of mission gloves, this is a very good thing).

So yeah, sorry to say, but it's gone except for though influences on bauer.
