The game of hockey began with traditional wooden hockey sticks, and even today some players remain wood stick devotees. While most players prefer composite sticks, wooden sticks are a great option for beginners—they’re more affordable and offer added weight, which helps develop puck handling skills, as compared with a composite stick. And many players swear that wooden sticks allow for a better puck “feel” on the blade.
