How to Tape Your Hockey Stick Blade like Alexander Ovechkin

Have you ever wondered how some of your favorite pros tape their hockey sticks? We have!

In the video below Quest Hockey coach and Hockey Players Club co-founder Brandon Rubeo demonstrates how he tapes the blade of his twig similar to Alex Ovechkin.  Instead of using wide white cloth hockey tape like Ovie, Rubeo uses wide black cloth hockey tape because he prefers the look and feel.

Finally, he rubs a puck onto the tape of his blade to make sure the tape is flush and to provide some grip from the rubber residue.
