We found a great thread on defunct or forgotten hockey brands on the website goaliestore.com. It is a good exercise to go looking to fan boards to find brands that are underutilized and authentic. Message boards always have fans that are more ardent, and thus tend to know the soul of good brands.
Here, a few brands from the site. Some are still around, in various incarnations:
- VIC pads
- Daoust skates
- DR Quantum
- CanStar Cooper
