Treating Sticks With Care

from Kevin Baxter of the Miami Herald,

The first thing Detroit’s Brett Lebda does when he gets a new shipment of hockey sticks is grab a marker and write an inscription on the back.
‘‘I have a little superstition,’’ says Lebda, who has religiously adhered to the practice since he was kid playing on the frozen ponds of Illinois. ``Just something that means something to me.’‘
Keith Tkachuk of the St. Louis Blues, meanwhile, makes sure he takes his three kids with him every time he steps on the ice, writing their names—Matthew, Braeden and Taryn—in neat script on the nob of his stick.
