Ben O’Connor spoke about his trust in BAUER
‘I have been using Bauer for as long as I can remember. The custom sticks are designed to my exact specifications allowing me to be confident every time I hit the ice. I know exactly how the sticks will perform and react in all situations which is important at any level. I am very particular about my skates and find Bauer provide me with ultimate comfort and performance. Knowing you have 100% trust in your equipment is paramount so you can have 100% focus on your game.’
