Only one thing is allowed to touch that puck, and that is the stick also know as Bat, Pusher or thingy.

Each stick offers unique benefits, and each player is going to have different needs.
If you have any questions about what you should look for, feel free to get in touch to discuss your requirements. Or ask a teammate if they can help.
