SKINS Compression Clothing, the leading gradient compression sportswear company, is proud to announce it has been selected as the “Official Recovery Compression” brand of the National Hockey League’s leading West Conference teams: San Jose Sharks, Anaheim Ducks, St. Louis Blues and the Dallas Stars.

“With the accelerated schedule and increased travel of this lock out season, we have less time to recover between games”

The full roster of each team was custom-fit with SKINS RY400 recovery compression equipment designed specifically to accelerate muscle repair and reduce fatigue. Emerging from a four-month lockout without regular practice and intense training, speed of recovery between games and injury prevention can make the difference given the strenuous back-to-back NHL post-lockout 48-game schedule. The Sharks (#2), Blues (#4), Ducks (#5), and Stars (#10) have rebounded successfully from the lockout, clinching top ten spots in the Western Conference rankings thus far.

“With the accelerated schedule and increased travel of this lock out season, we have less time to recover between games,” said Mike Hannegan, Assistant Athletic Trainer for the Anaheim Ducks. “SKINS help us recover and be ready for the next game in shorter time.”

Designed to help reduce exercise induced muscle damage, the SKINS RY400 product range will help the athletes quickly bounce back to their maximum, regular-season level of performance. SKINS compression clothing works by increasing circulation, accelerating the delivery of oxygen to muscles and improving the lactate shuttle.

Unlike its A400 range designed for active use, SKINS RY400 product line is designed specifically to apply the compression needs of muscles in the passive, rebuilding state. The gradient compression in SKINS performance apparel will be key to maintaining the players’ stamina, active recovery time and overall top-level performance throughout this year’s highly-aggressive training program and travel schedule by helping them recover faster while preventing injury.

"The SKINS recovery products are essential for our players' recovery and performance,” explained Brad Jellis, Strength & Conditioning Coach for the Dallas Stars. “With our demanding game and travel schedule, SKINS allow players to recover quicker and be at their best for the next competition.”

SKINS compression wear is designed to help athletes reach their peak performance with products developed for specific sports and levels of activity. Whatever the sport, SKINS allows athletes to train harder, compete longer and recover faster.
