One of hockey’s most prominent apparel brands was in fact founded as a company specializing in bicycle gear. CCM, or Canada Cycle & Motor, began as a bike maker in what is now northwest Toronto in 1899, but quickly evolved into one of hockey’s foremost equipment brands.

Other Canadian hockey gear brands like Bauer and Cooper were also acquired by an American giant — Nike — in the 1990s.
