But as the article that SmallTown posted states, Reebok has stepped in the make him wooden ones again because the former manufacturer (I think it was Victoriaville) had stopped production. 

Whatever he is using now, sure seems to be working out well for him. :nod:

But that article is also dated back in November.

That was funny.  Notice Chara only used one hand and protected the other and pushed down with his forearm.  I wondered about him fighting because his had was hurt.   Downie is damn lucky he couldn't use both.

^^That's the article.  I remember my son reading it and saying "you know you have reached the top when a company will make sticks just for you" or words to that effect.  Thanks ST for affirming that my memory still works from time to time.  ;)
I wish they would market them... I buy up every Sherwood wood stick that I find as there are no options now for good wood sticks.

See, I had heard he had recently gone back to a one piece composite stick and dumped the wood.

Indeed.  From the game against Vancouver, you can clearly see he uses an Easton S19 composite stick:

and from the manufacturer's website:

Ovie Schmovie. I predict that after the game Boudreau will be knocking on the Sens dressing room door to ask if he can have his Ovechkin back from where he's been stuck all evening in Chris Phillips' pocket.

Right call, wrong player......
