Hockey Equipment Swap - Saturday, September 29, 2012

Every year the Chiller Ice Rinks accept donations of used hockey equipment for the annual Hockey Equipment Swap. This Equipment Swap gives hockey players the opportunity to purchase new and used equipment such as skates, helmets, pants, gloves, shoulder pads and more for fractions of the normal cost. This year, the equipment swap will take place on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at the OhioHealth Chiller North from noon-3 p.m. All proceeds raised will be specifically dedicated back to the hockey community.

Also, anyone donating used equipment will receive a voucher for two FREE Blue Jackets pre-season tickets. If you have any questions about the swap, please contact Mason Fisher with the Blue Jackets at or 614.246.3730.

Equipment Bank

The Blue Jackets Foundation plays an active role to break the barrier to entry by making hockey more accessible and affordable to all.  The Equipment Bank has been established to provide a bag full of equipment to all kids interested in participating in the sport.  It seeks to foster the development of youth hockey by lending youth hockey equipment to skaters in need to enable them to participate in the junior jackets hockey program.

To Donate:

Drop off any new or gently used hockey gear at the Chiller Ice Rink – Easton or email the Blue Jackets Foundation at for a pick up.
