The purpose of hockey tape is to create better grip on the puck. The reason hockey tape doesnโ€™t come integrated onto a stick is because it wears off and requires to be retaped. Newer sticks come with specially designed blades and are there to create as much grip as possible but it is limited because companies are doing this with a stick designed to last a long time.
