A big shout out to:

In 1973, both the NHL and NHLPA had officially recognized the Professional Hockey Athletic Trainers Association. Over the next 20 years, the organization continued to expand its ranks to include both athletic trainers and equipment managers from the AHL, ECHL, SPHL, NCAA, OHL, WHL, QMJHL and USHL.

In 1996, members voted to divide the organization into two equal societies which would continue to strive to meet common goals, as well as focusing on the specific needs of athletic trainers and equipment managers.

Today, the Professional Hockey Athletic Trainers Society (PHATS) and the Society of Professional Hockey Equipment Managers (SPHEM) boast over 600 members, who represent more than 100 Professional, NCAA and Canadian Junior League teams from across North America and Europe.
