Superior Hockey

Hockey is a way of life for many of us in the U.P. Dan Beerman and Scott Nevenhoven have been playing hockey since they could walk. Together, with their wives Katie and Kasha, they formed Superior Hockey at the end of 2013. There mission was to create the best hockey store in the U.P. and to be the only full service hockey shop within an arena. They bought out the old Hockey Central, a longtime locally owned shop, and expanded the store into Lakeview Arena. Please stop by for all your hockey needs. You can find them at 401 E. Fair St in the south west corner of the building. (906) 225-9008
