FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. –The Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) is proud to announce a new partnership that will make Hogan Hockey™ the Official Cut-Resistant Hockey Product Partner of the CCHA.
Producing the ACHILLES® line of cut-resistant products specifically designed for the sport, Hogan Hockey™ utilizes high-performance cut-resistant materials to help protect hockey players from cuts inherent in the fast-paced, high-contact sport that involves "blades of steel."
"The opportunity to partner with the CCHA was one that Hogan Hockey could not pass up," said Randy Hogan, founder of Hogan Hockey™. "Providing the best cut-resistant protection possible at an affordable price is our passion and we look forward to pursuing that endeavor with the CCHA, its member schools and hockey players of all ages that are reached by the CCHA."
Hogan Hockey’s commitment is to remain on the cutting edge of the design and development of the most protective, comfortable and high-performance cut-resistant protective products for hockey players at all levels. Equally important is their commitment to educating parents, coaches, administrators, and athletic trainers on the importance of utilizing cut-resistant products to enhance the safety and protection of student-athletes.
Founded in 2010 to integrate the safety of cut-resistant materials into the high-impact and high-contact sport of hockey, Hogan Hockey™ currently produces cut-resistant high-performance socks, wrist guards and compression fit underwear that are utilized at the highest levels of the game.
"As a lifelong hockey player, parent and enthusiastic supporter of excellence, I am delighted to form this partnership with Hogan Hockey," said Rob Murphy, the CCHA Director of Sales and Marketing. "Hogan Hockey creates products that protect players while not compromising performance. Additionally the products keep players safer and reduce the risk of very serious injury. We are proud to recommend Hogan Hockey cut-resistant products to our conference and hockey players everywhere."

Division I hockey conferences. The CCHA Championship has attracted over 950,000 fans to Joe Louis Arena in Detroit since 1982, including a championship-record 20,067 spectators in 1985.
