About East Coast Hockey and Skating Supplies


East Coast Hockey and Skating Supplies was born out of a deep love for ice skating and a commitment to excellence. The story of our hockey & skating goods store is a narrative of passion, community, and the relentless pursuit of providing unparalleled service and expertise.

In August 2003, Mike and Kristen Hendrix transformed a moment of uncertainty into an opportunity that has since become a beacon for the skating community. With Mike's rich background in youth hockey coaching and a part-time commitment to helping at the local ice rink, they stepped in to fill a void left by a pro shop/store closure due to a fallout with the rink management. Leveraging Mike's extensive experience in the hockey business and their shared connection with the skating world, they embarked on a journey to create a convenient online store for hockey and skating goods.
