The Thermochromic Puck

The NHL announced a new "technology" for treating pucks to be unveiled at the Winter Classic. I wrote about it over on Puck Junk a bit ago. Take a few minutes and check it out. Leave a comment with your thoughts.

The NHL made the announcement yesterday (at least it was at the time I originally wrote this article) that for the first time, official game pucks to be used in this season’s NHL Winter Classic game will feature a new technology using a thermochromic coating. Thermo-what, you ask? To put it in the simplest terms, PPG — yes the Pittsburgh-based paint company that sponsors the Penguins’ home arena and is advertised as the official paint of the NHL — has developed a coating that changes color based on temperature. That’s right — color changing pucks.
