Tom Evans has more experience in the hockey equipment industry than anybody else out there.

In 1994, Tom became the Store Manager at Hockey Locker Hockey Supply until he was hired by Gear Zone in 2000. Starting at the Pennsauken Gear Zone location, Tom was promoted to Store Manager at the Voorhees Gear Zone location in 2005. Tom is currently semi-retired, but he still works part time at our Voorhees locaiton.
Tom has been helping customers find the exact equipment for their hockey or skating needs for over 40 years, and has seen the technology behind all of the equipment evolve to help get an edge on the ice rink. Speaking of edges, Tom is one of the best skate sharpeners around to get your blade perfect for the ice.
Tom also has used his knowledge to be a standout men’s league player, which he’s played in leagues all over the Philadelphia region. His favorite part about hockey is watching the best skaters in hockey over the years use that edge to dominate the game.
