Our Ownership Group

In the late summer of 2015, Jeff Stairs saw the value in The Skating Lab by how much it helped improve his son’s confidence and performance on the ice. Jeff Potter, owner and operator of ProSkateCorner and long standing stakeholder in the business, met Stairs, and quickly formed a dynamic and complimentary business relationship that allowed them to take over the Skating Lab by late 2015.

Together, Potter and Stairs, or “Jeff Squared”, combine their individual talents and passions for the hockey industry to continue to provide high quality products and services to players all over the GTA and beyond.
