Bruins Winger David Pastrňák Invests in Hockey Virtual Reality

By Sports Technology Wire on October 10, 2018

After a test run earlier this year with the Boston Bruins, a new virtual reality technology attempting to revolutionize ice hockey training has launched, boosted by a minor investment from Bruins’ right winger David Pastrňák.  

The Czech Republic-based company, called Sense Arena, launched Wednesday. It has official partnerships with a number of organizations in its home country, including the Czech Ice Hockey Association, the Faculty of Physical Education and Sport of Charles University in Prague, and the professional hockey club White Tigers Liberec.

In addition to Pastrňák, who is also from the Czech Republic and has signed on as a Sense Arena partner, the company has received investment from Aleš Volek, a well-known Czech hockey agent.

Pastrňák said he joined the Sense Arena team because he wanted to support a Czech invention and use his name to help the company win the trust of players, coaches, and clubs. That could include coaches, scouts, players, and franchises in the NHL.
