About Us

Deceptively simple but effective goal anchoring system.

The design and material of the Marsh Pegs give them a flexibility that allows the net to move when jostled but remain on the pegs during regular play.

Upon strong impact, such as a player crashing into the net, the net will pop off the pegs and prevent injury to the player.

The nets can be replaced in seconds.

At the present time, professional hockey leagues in North America, including the NCAA, recommend Marsh Pegs as the goal anchoring system to be used.

It’s really a great pleasure to sit there and watch a hockey game and see somebody crash into the net and see the net come off and the peg there and just think – because of me they didn’t get hurt, and that’s priceless.

Marsh Pegs Product Information

The original Marsh Pegs were 1 5/8” (41.3 mm), but many arenas did not have room between the cooling lines for the 2” (50.8 mm) inserts required. Therefore, Fred designed two sizes of stepped pegs to fit into smaller inserts in the ice: 1 3/8” (34.9 mm) and 13/16” (20.6 mm) These sizes can be used for midget level hockey and above. (Marsh Pegs should not be used below midget level.)

At the end of the 2001- 2002 season, the National Hockey League requested a longer and thicker peg, so for the 2002-2003 season Fred supplied a new 1 7/8” (47.6 mm) peg. This 1 7/8” Marsh Peg is stronger than the other sizes and is exclusively for the National Hockey League.

Fred also developed another 1 7/8” stepped Marsh Peg that has the same flexibility as the 1 5/8” (41.3 mm) peg. With this peg, 1 7/8” (47.6 mm) goes into the net and 1 5/8” (41.3 mm) into the 2” (50.8 mm) floor insert. This Marsh Peg (1 7/8″) is designed to be used for adult professional hockey including junior leagues.

Most arenas in Europe have less space between the cooling lines than North American arenas so they use the smallest 1″ (25.4 mm) inserts and the most flexible 13/16″ (20.6 mm) Marsh Pegs.
