The Sonnet locker room

Hockey has changed, so has insurance.

As a 100% Canadian company, if there’s one thing we love as much as insurance – it’s hockey. We’ve teamed up with the NHLPA to show how your favourite game and its players have evolved. Hockey has changed, so has insurance.

We’re taking you inside the game through the players, plus sharing a glimpse into their lives off the ice as well.

From watching game tape to live streaming, hockey has changed and so has insurance. Take a look at how game prep has changed for Jonathan Drouin, Johnny Gaudreau and William Nylander.
