Our story begins on a local pond which we consider our home ice. An annual meeting place for a group of friends who share an unquenchable desire to play the game of hockey in its purest form.
The games, always short-lived due to the darkness that the Canadian winter brings, are on rare occasion extended by fortune of a clear sky and a luminescent moon. On one of those nights, as the game was winding to an end, our group gathered around the fire to share laughter and boast about what had transpired on the ice. After losing nearly a bucket of pucks due to low light Derek Chaisson and Rick Richard, Night Puck Technologies Co-Founders complained about the lack of visibility. After ruling out generators and other methods of providing some light in the remote location Rick turned to Derek and suggested “Why don’t we put some lights in the puck?” A few weeks later a primitive version of the ‘Night Puck‘ emerged on that same pond.
