New Armada Hockey Equipment Company Signs Gerald "Gerry" Osterkamp

So, I was just checking out some youtube roller hockey videos, when I happened across one about Gerry Osterkamp.  Osterkamp, for those who do not know, is a MLRH player for the LA Pama Cyclones.  The Cyclones are known for their major successes in pro roller hockey tournaments as well as Itan Chavira, one of the best roller hockey danglers and a former ECHL player.  I also mentioned Gerry Osterkamp a few months back as one of the top ten hockey players on youtube.  Seems like I was right.  A brand new hockey equipment company called Armada Hockey has just signed him to promote its products.  It looks like he will be wearing some prototype skates with Mission or Labeda chasis.

While that's great news for Osterkamp, what's even better is the fact that we are getting a new roller hockey equipment company.  I've been saying for years that all this buying out of one another in hockey gear companies limits players choices and now Armada Hockey has just thrown its hat into the ring as something new and fresh.  If you pay close attention to the video you can get a sneak peak at some of the products that they will be selling.  I saw some sleak hockey sticks with a white blade in a golf bag, some multi colored pucks on an office desk and a skate boot design.  The names of the skates were seen on a board and I glimpsed  AR-9, AR-7, AR-5, and AR-3.  The numbering seems simliar to the way Abec makes it's bearings Abec 3 - 9.  Anyways, I'll be on the look out for more information regarding Armada Hockey and what their product line is.
