Trust the Original Hockey Tape
Whether you play ice hockey recreationally or professionally, every time you step on the ice you want to be focused on playing well and teamwork to win the game. Knowing that you’re using the best hockey tape on your stick and to secure your protective shin pads, helps free up your mind to stay in the game.
Renfrew Pro Tape was established in 1980 and hockey sticks have changed a lot since. From all-wood construction to metal to today’s composite one piece hockey sticks. And with each new development, the performance expectations of hockey tape also needed to change.
Renfrew Pro Tape continuously evolves its products to ensure that every roll of hockey tape optimizes performance, regardless of the type of hockey stick you use.

A Little Town in Ontario Gives Birth to the NHL
The Renfrew Millionaires, created by M. J. O'Brien and his son Ambrose, was a professional hockey team that attracted national attention to the small timber town of Renfrew, Ontario, Canada (originally called the Renfrew Creamery Kings).
The O'Brien's created the National Hockey Association (NHA), after being rejected entry to the Canadian Hockey Association (CHA). The NHA consisted of the Renfrew Millionaires, Cobalt Silver Kings, Haileybury Comets and Les Canadiens of Montreal. Within a month, the Montreal Wanderers also joined to become the fifth team. The NHA formed the foundation of today's National Hockey League. Hockey fans everywhere owe their love of today's game, and League, to the hard work and dreams of M.J. and Ambrose O'Brien.
