Z.- A. HALL HOCKEY STICK Filed Aug. l5, 1952 Ha rm mi Patented May 12, 1936 mirlztn OFFICE HOCKEY STICK Zachariah Adam Hall,

Guelph, Ontario,v Canada Application August 15, 1932, Serial No. 628,805

7 Claims.

It is well known amongst hockey players and others that the weight of a hockey stick is an important factor in fatiguinga hockey player during a game and thereby slowing his speed. The ability to lighten the weight of hockey sticks heretofore used by one, two or even three ounces without sacrificing the rigidity of the stick was greatly desired as it would give the player a much lighter load tocarry. Since the player usually carries his stick extending in front of him, the actual saving on the player by a decrease in the weight of the stick by say two onces will be approximately twelve ounces.

It is also well known that a rigid shaft is highly desirable in a hockey stick but heretofore this feature was .v dependent solely on the kind and quality of the wood used in the manufacture and it had certain limitations such as the weight desired for the finished stick. 'I o lighten the sticks heretofore in use, it was necessary to remove the necessary amount of wood from the handle which had the effect of decreasing its rigidity.

The object of this invention is to construct a hockey stick whereby the balance of the stick may be improved by altering its weight without changing the size or dimensions of the stick. A further object of this invention is to increase the rigidity of the shaft without adding to the weight of the stick. These and other objects of the invention are accomplished by a laminated construction whereby the balance of the stick is improved without altering its weight or changing the size or dimensions of the stick. A further advantage of a stick constructed according to this invention is that the rigidity of the shaft can be increased without adding to the weight of the stick. A still further advantage is that warping of the stick is nulliiied to an extent which permits it being kept indefinitely without serious impairment of its quality or grade.

Other and further objects and advantages of a hockey stick constructed according to this inventionv will be apparent by reference to the following description and accompanying drawing in Which:-

Fig. 1 is a front elevation of a hockey stick embodying my invention;

Fig. 2 is a cross sectional view on the lines 2-2 Fig. 1;

Fig. 3 is a sectional view on and Fig. 4 is a perspective view showing the insert extended to the heel of the stick.

Like characters of reference refer to like parts throughout the specification and drawing.

the line 3--3 Fig. 1;

The subject matter of my invention comprises an integrally formed shaft and head sawn out of a flat billet which has been bent in the manner well known to the art to the required shape and which has substantially parallel faces. In the 5 preferred construction the hockey stick comprises a shaft l having substantially parallel faces and a blade 2 of the usual dimensions extending at an angle thereto. The shaft I is provided with a channel 3 which extends from front to back of 10 the handle and inwardly from its free end to approximately the throat 5 of the stick as shown in Fig. l or to the heel of the stick as shown in Fig.

4, the sides of the channel being substantially parallel to said faces. Wedge shaped insert 6 15 having an upper butt4 end wider than the channel is entered in the channel and glued or otherwise fastened thereto. The insert may be made of wood the same or different to that of which the stick is made. The kind of wood depend- 20 ing on the weight and rigidity desired.

When it is desired to produce a stick lighter than could be attained if the stick was made of the same material throughout, an insert made of a lighter wood is required. The weight of the 25 stick may be still further reduced by removing part of the insert by a series of perforations 1, as shown in Fig. 2, but the perforations may be omitted or the number increased or decreased as desired.

In every instance where the hockey stick has been so constructed, the rigidity of the shaft has been increased over what it would have been had the shaft not been of a laminated construction. Further, the weight of the stick can be readily ad- 35 justed in the course of manufacture to the necessary requirements, thereby improving itsbalance. Another advantage of this construction is that the grade or quality of the stick can be raised to a higher standard than could be attained if the 40 stick was not so made. That is a second grade stick can be raised to a first grade stick and so forth. This means a substantial saving in material as material which is not suitable for the particular grade manufactured may be used with- 45 out impairing the grade or quality of the manufactured stick.

Having thus fully described my invention what I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent is:

1. A hockey stick comprising a shaft and a blade integrally formed, the blade extending at an angle to the shaft, a channel extending inwardly from the free end of the shaft and an insert constituting an essential part of the shaft 55 entered in the channel and secured to the sides thereof and provided with a perforation for improving the balance of the stick by decreasing the weight of the shaft.

2. A hockey stick comprising an integrally formed shaft and head sawn out of a flat billet bent to the required shape, the shaft having substantially parallel faces, a slot in the shaft extending from the front edge to the rear thereof and from the top of the shaft to the throat of the stick, the sidesof the slot being substantially parallel to said faces and a wedge shaped ller member having an upper butt end wider than the slot for adjusting the balance and weight of the shaft and expanding the shaft to the desired width secured in and lling said slot.

3. A hockey stick comprising an integrally formed head and shaft sawn out of a flat billet bent to the required shape having substantially parallel faces, a slot in the shaft extending from the' front edge' to the rear edge thereof and from the top` of the handle to the throat of the stick, the sides of the slot being substantially parallel to` said faces and a wedge shaped llermernber having an upper butt end wider than the slot for adjusting the balance and weight of the shaft and expanding the shaft to the desired width, secured in and filling said slot.

4. A hockey stick comprising an integrally formed shaft and head sawn out of a flat billet bentto the required shape, the shaft having substantially parallel faces, a slot in the shaft extending from the front edge to the rear edge thereof and from the top of the shaft to the throat ofthe stick, and a Wedge shaped ller member having an upper butt end Wider than the slot for expanding the shaft to the desired Width, secured in and filling said slot.

5. A hockey stick comprising an integrally formed head and shaft having substantially parallel faces, a slot in the shaft extending from the front edge to the rear edge thereof and from the top of the shaft to the heel of the stick, the sides of said slot being substantially parallel to said faces and a wedge shaped filler member having an upper butt end Wider than the slot for adjusting the balance and Weight ofthe shaft and expanding the shaft to the desired width secured in and filling said slot.

6. A hockey stick comprising an integrally 'formed shaft and head sawn out of a flat billet bent to the required shape, the shaft having substantially parallel faces, a slot in the shaft eX- tending from the front edge to the rear edge thereof and from the top of the shaft downwardly towards the throat of the stick, and a wedge shaped ller member having an upper butt end wider than the slot for expanding the shaft to the desired width secured in and lling said slot.

7. A hockey stick comprising an integrally formed head and shaft sawn out of a. flat billet bent to the required shape having substantially parallel faces, a slot in the shaft extending from the frontI edge to the rear edge' thereof and fromv the' top of the handle downwardly towards the throat of the stick, the sides of the slot being. substantially parallel to said faces and a wedge shaped ller member having an upper butt end wider than the slot for adjusting the balance and weight of the shaft and expanding the shaft to the desired Width, secured in and filling said slot.
