Northern Lakes Youth Hockey Association is excited to announce a win/win partnership with Integral Hockey Brainerd, a new local business that offers the most technologically advanced composite hockey stick repair system on the market at an affordable price. Why is this a win/win?


Parents save money! Instead of throwing away your broken, high-end hockey stick, get it repaired with Integral Hockey’s internal, patented system which comes with a lifetime warranty at the repair zone.  There is no noticeable difference in weight, flex, kick point, or balance. Once repaired by Integral Hockey, your stick will be ready for any level of play.


Our association makes money! For every shaft repair done on a NLYHA player’s hockey stick, Integral Hockey Brainerd will donate $5.00 back to the association. In addition, for every refurbished hockey stick purchased by a NLYHA player, Integral Hockey Brainerd will donate $5.00 back to the association. Most of Integral Hockey Brainerd’s refurbished sticks are pro stock from NCAA teams; they are top of the line hockey sticks ideal for the older players in our association.


Integral Hockey’s patented repair system has been proven, successfully returning more than 59,000 broken hockey sticks back to play rather than a landfill since 2010. We’re excited to have a local franchise conveniently located in our community.


Learn more at or by calling Andy Kratochvil, owner and NLYHA parent, at 218-851-3847.
