Extreme Hockey & Sport
Goalies will tell you that equipment is of utmost importance — and as one of the largest providers in the province of goalie pads and gear for ages four and up, Extreme knows it. It also fits customers with hockey and baseball equipment for other positions, so you’ll find a variety of products from leading brands, including Bauer, Graf, Under Armour, Easton, RBK, Warrior, Hollas, Nike and Mizuno.

Saskatoon Skate Exchange
If you’ve always avoided consignment sports stores because you thought you’d be walking into a stinky locker room, this bright and organized space will definitely change your mind. The ozone-cleaning system keeps the thousands of kids’ skates and huge inventory of hockey equipment clean and bacteria-free. And the trade-in program keeps customers coming back — you can get one-third of your next purchase. If you’d rather take the cash, you’ll still get one-quarter o f the sale price. A Sanisport cleaning machine is also available to clean sports equipment for a fee. 2 Locations in Saskatoon: 2341 Millar Ave., 306-374-2223; #4-606 22nd St. W. 306-979-6252; skateexchange.ca
