With the acquisition, Pure Hockey will now operate approximately 60 retail locations across the United States including 5 locations in Pennsylvania.

This acquisition allows us to grow our brand and continue providing an exceptional in-store experience and the largest selection of hockey brands and products they have come to expect from Pure Hockey."
KoSports Hockey was founded in 1995 by Curt and Jackie Koman and quickly became the premier hockey retailer in Western PA, Eastern OH, and WV. For over 25 years, the KoSports Hockey team built a loyal customer base through exceptional customer service and product selection.
"We are very excited to find an acquisition partner in Pure Hockey. As the industry leader, Pure Hockey provides an exceptional customer and retail experience that our customers have come to expect from KoSports Hockey," said Curt Koman, Owner, KoSports Hockey. "Pure Hockey is able to leverage economies of scale to provide the best products and service the Pittsburgh hockey community."
Pure Hockey Canonsburg will have a grand opening event in the coming months. The retail location will remain at KoSports Hockey address of 2588 Washington Rd, Canonsburg, PA 15317 and the acquisition is for this retail location only.
