Bauer is known for producing sticks, helmets, and skates for some of the best and most elite hockey players in the world.
They’re about to be known for a whole lot more than that, though.
Bauer, like everyone else in the sports world and beyond, has been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. In light of this, the iconic hockey brand has shifted gears, and is producing medical-grade face shields to help better protect front line medical professionals battling the virus.
The Canadian company will be producing the shields at the company's innovation centre in Blainville, Quebec, and they’ll be making full face, single use, anti fogging masks to shield first responders, doctors, and nurses.
Way to be, guys!
Some pretty incredible stuff from the hockey community during such a tough time for the entire world.
