CAN-ICE versus REAL ICE!
This is a MUST WATCH – videos don’t lie! This clip of Can-Ice pro series panels on top of real ice substantiates Vincent Lecavaliers assessment of Can-Ice performing like 95% of real ice and explains why Elvis Stojko says that Can-Ice is the absolute closest surface to real ice, barring none.

Lee Harris, the skating coach for the Columbus Blue Jackets and for Ohio State shows the edge control, glide and puck response on his CAN-ICE training surface. This is a testament to what can be done in a small area.

I was already using HockeyShot’s top product 3/4″ synthetic ice – my 4 year old couldn’t skate on it, my 5 year old couldn’t skate on it and even I couldn’t skate on it because there’s no glide and the shavings are terrible. I called Toews and Lecavalier and asked them about Can-Ice and they said it’s sweet, so my decision to switch was easy! I can’t believe how good the glide is on Can-Ice, the other brands are not even close.”

I’ve always had synthetic ice installed in my shooting bays but was never able to have my students wear their skates because the glide was terrible and it created a mess of shavings. Now with CAN-ICE, I’ve added a new dimension to my business and my clients love skating on it, plus their mechanics will be the same as on-ice allowing for the best skill development. CAN-ICE!!

“By far, this is the best synthetic ice we have ever used! For a long time, I’ve had the HockeyShot tiles, and although great at the time, the tiles were messy (white shaving all over the house) and once worn out, they started to crack. I had to buy a ShopVac just for the tiles alone. Once we installed the Can-Ice in the basement, our entire hockey training program transformed. We are now using it daily to train professionals, college, junior and youths from all over the world. The best part of it is that the white tiny shavings are GONE along with my ShopVac. The performance of their panels are absolutely incredible. I would never use anything less than Can-Ice again. If you want to see it for yourself, follow us on Instagram @satoshi__takano.”
“With 2 kids playing Elite AAA, I did endless amounts of research to find the best synthetic ice on the market. I already had GLICE but wasn’t satisfied with the glide/skating performance so my kids would never skate on it and I didn’t like their tongue and groove connections. So I wanted to upgrade and make sure that this would be my final synthetic ice purchase, after all I did make a substantial investment already on my GLICE. I am beyond thrilled that I chose Can-Ice, my kids are skating on it 3 hours day even in sub zero temperatures, and I see a huge difference already in their game play!! The performance, puck response and glide are far superior to any synthetic ice I’ve ever tried – it’s soooo close to real ice. Plus it’s amazing in the extreme hot or cold (it’s easy to shovel) and the Can-Ice interlock connections provide a seamless skating experience on my driveway which isn’t too flat. To top it all off, the customer service is the best of the best – I dealt directly with their COO, Steven Wong, he made my buying experience so incredible that I’m coming back for more panels and I’m treating him to a nice steak dinner. As an owner of 7 Tim Horton’s franchises, customer service is paramount and I’m not easily impressed. With that said, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND CAN-ICE!”

Can-Ice is by far the best synthetic ice my sons have ever used! We’ve used multiple other brands in the past – some that were good and some that were a nightmare to skate on (SmartRink). None of those compare to Can-Ice – it’s better in all aspects. My son, who’s a goalie, pointed this out not even a minute into skating on Can-Ice for the first time! He was able to t-push, shuffle, slide, c-cut (couldn’t c-cut on other brands’ ice and needed Rollerfly sliding plates as well, not anymore)! My other son, who’s a forward, was able to finally skate comfortably as well! On other surfaces, he would skate slowly and brace himself for a fall or a slip-out. He’s now able to just focus on skating and running through drills as he would on normal ice! My sons are very excited to train on Can-Ice every day and keep getting better with limited rink availability! Thank you to Steven and the amazing team at Can-Ice for all the help and constant updates! You’re the best!

“Can-Ice is truly an amazing product. Product is high quality, extremely durable, easy to set-up and leaves no shavings or mess. After just 10 minutes on the ice you can see my goalie daughter was able to slide and move around very smoothly in her goalie gear without the need for pad covers. She said “this is awesome it feels the same as real ice”. Can-Ice has truly exceeded our expectations.”
“My family and I are loving our new Glide Masters Can-Ice tiles! They are fantastic to skate on and super easy to set up. I’ve taken ours apart several times over the last month getting them just right. Setup for 200 square feet like we have takes less than 30 minutes! The staff at Can-Ice could not have been more helpful and responsive (I dealt directly with Steven in Canada). He put together a package that was just what we needed and helped me through the shipping and customs prices as I’m in the US (these tiles are fabricated in Canada and ship from north of the border). I compared what I paid with shipping and duties to competitors in the US and it was totally worth going with Can-Ice (now I’m in the process of buying more)!”
