Children shuffled around the facility's other ice rink to the beats of Ke$ha and Fall Out Boy as their parents watched from the heated lobby, most of them unaware that one of the world's best female hockey players was in the building for a photo shoot last week. After snapping dozens of pictures of Knight wielding one of their brand new hockey sticks, STX, the Baltimore-based sports equipment maker, put the finishing touches on its promotional campaign to announce that they had signed Knight, the goal-scoring forward and one of the faces of the U.S. Olympic women's ice hockey team, to a five-year promotional agreement.
