NHL business notebook: The growth of custom skates, ESPN and Turner broadcaster updates

Roughly a year ago, Peter Gubernator was displaced by flooding in Fort McMurray, Alberta. For him, the summer of 2020 was about trying to find a consistent housing solution for himself and his two dogs.

“Because of the dogs, I couldn’t go to some of the camps they set up,” Gubernator said. “Luckily, I had a friend set something up for me in his home with a mattress on the floor. Of course, all of this was also happening while things were going crazy with COVID.”

Now living in Montreal, this summer is about continuing to grow a custom-skate business, Guby Customs, that’s gotten the attention of NHL clients and seems poised to take a major leap within the hockey industry.

Gubernator has been designing and customizing skates since he was a 10-year-old. He would take a marker and add different colors to his skates.
