CAN-ICE® is a synthetic ice surface that looks, feels and performs just like real ice, indoors and out. Endorsed by Hockey Canada, CAN-ICE® synthetic ice is perfect for any hockey player or figure skater looking to be the best they can be, and have fun doing it.

CAN-ICE® synthetic ice harkens back to bygone days when the best hockey players became the best playing the game endlessly on frozen ponds, outdoor parish rinks and iced over sloughs. Under crisp blue skies or the ghostly shadows thrown by antiquated lights, kids played shinny… every game for the Stanley Cup, every game in overtime. And in doing so, they unknowingly practiced their stick-handling, their dekes, their shots, their skating. And it was all for fun.

That’s the idea behind CAN-ICE®. CAN-ICE® gives young players and skaters a synthetic ice surface on which to play and practice 365 days a year. In these days of expensive and scarce ice-time, with CAN-ICE® synthetic ice, kids can just lace up the skates and go… anytime they want.

Hockey Canada is endorsing CAN-ICE® as our official supplier of synthetic ice. CAN-ICE® can provide the young hockey player with a 12 month solution to develop their skating, puck control and shooting skills in the comfort of their homes, without the maintenance of an outdoor rink.

Dear Hockey enthusiast,


Thank you for your interest in Can-Ice. We are thrilled to introduce you to an exciting game-changer in synthetic ice. This surface is the closest to real ice that I’ve ever experienced in over 50 years of skating and playing hockey!

First and foremost, over the past five years my involvement with Can-Ice has been to provide you, the consumer, the very best synthetic ice product. This new product is the best! It’s started from scratch, and designed by polymer specialists for use as the premiere synthetic skating surface in hockey. The unique technology is truly revolutionary!

I played in the NHL for 13 years and know the importance of developing the skill set of the young hockey enthusiast. Through my experiences and travels, I have skated on numerous synthetic ice surfaces. My goal has been to find a product that performs like real ice. After months of investigating the best out there, we are close to that reality!

As an official supplier of synthetic ice to Hockey Canada along with having my brother-in-law, Tom Renney, Hockey Canada’s president, my goal and purpose continues to be to provide young hockey players with the premiere surface on which to develop their skating, puck control and shooting skills…all in the comfort of their own homes, without the cost and hassle maintaining an outdoor rink.  

Thank you for your patience and we look forward to the New Year when we will deliver an exciting new product from Can-Ice!

Yours in Hockey,
Danny Gare
