What stick is Peverley using?

Watching the game now. The stick appears to be entirely black void of any markings. Even the tape is black (now that I think about it maybe the whole thing is wrapped in tape but that doesn't make much sense).

Reason I ask is I know that brands have to "buy" their way into the NHL - not sure how else to put it. I know a few years ago someone was using Kor skates and they basically had to be painted black or covered up somehow. I see this with gloves every now and then too.

Sorry I don't have a pic...

EDIT: Found one...

is there is any yellow on the back side of the stick down towards the bottom of the shaft, then it's the new easton stealth rs.

if you look at the picture of Peverley, you can see a little yellow at the top of his stick, just like in the Easton Stealth pictures below....

I do believe that is just yellow stick tape, not a yellow stick graphic.

That stealth looks beast. Not sure if that's it though, I've never seen those gray/silver graphics on his sticks.

I would also say it's a Stealth. There's a Peverley game-used S19 for sale on NHL Auctions, and it's from Boston's very last home game of the 2010-11 season:

you may be right, in the picture of the stick itself, it only shows about half the stick which means that yellow part is in the middle of the stick. however it is possible that the stealth has yellow at the top as well...

Upon further review, I think is is the stealth. Very odd though that nothing really shows in the live photos in the way of graphics.

Bottom pics looks like the RS. I can see markings on it similar to the RS pic

I'm quite sure Peverley and Krejci are both using the RS, I've noticed the little flashes of yellow in games. In fact, 'm pretty sure all of the sticks that appear to be all black in this years playoffs are RSs.

It does seem weird to have a stick without obvious/visible branding, but they're getting a tonne of people wondering "what's that all black stick?", then finding out that it's an RS online, so their marketing strategy seems to be working.

Peverley is definitely using the stealth. they showed a close up of him skating to the bench during tonights game and you can clearly see a yellow stripe on the underside of the shaft and on the back of the heel on the stick.

Pretty sure they may have just spray painted the lower 2/3 of their sticks matte black.

I'm 100% sure that is what at least some players do. Getzlaf for example started spray painting his stick for whatever reason.

It's usual that players spray their sticks, but that's a Stealth.
