We’re still a couple of months away from the start of the 2018-19 NHL regular season and players and fans are wishing the season would just start already, even if it means trading in the rest of the summer.

One player who is incorporating hockey into his summer activities is Detroit Red Wings winger Luke Witkowski, who has used some of his free time this offseason to create the ultimate hockey stick fishing rod.

The 28-year-old is calling his creation the CCM Ribcore Heavy Action Fishing Rod and it’s the first one like it to ever be created.

Who knows, maybe CCM will be into this idea and decide it’s time to get into the fishing industry all thanks to Witkowski.
