When a 3rd grader answered 9 x 9 = HOSSA on her math test it became an internet sensation. Now her test is part of a Marian Hossa apparel line.

9 x 9 = Hossa

Hockey apparel and brand development company PUCK HCKY, LLC is pleased to announce a unique and fun addition to their Marian Hossa Signature Series collection, which draws from music, art, fashion, sports, and pop culture to create cool, fun apparel that caters to hockey fashionistas, as well as die-hard fans.

This new addition is based on the actions of Maggie Ciara, who two years ago as a 3rd grader answered 9 x 9 = Hossa on her math test.

“When we read Maggie’s story, we just knew we had to meet this super fan,” PUCK HCKY CEO Matt Marini said. “Lucky for us, Maggie was happy to partner up with PUCK HCKY and we’ve made some awesome gear.”

The designs feature Maggie’s actual handwriting and math test. Recently, Maggie had a chance to meet Marian Hossa, her sports idol, and Marian signed the math test for her. Maggie receives a portion of all sales of the designs, which said she'll save for college tuition and a Jeep for when she’s old enough to drive.

“Maggie's story is very cool,” Marian said. "For her to think ‘Hossa’ during a math test shows how passionate fans like Maggie are. It makes me appreciate how lucky we are as players to play for an organization like the 'Hawks and fans like Maggie.”

“PUCK HCKY is doing a tremendous job developing designs that are unique and which we believe will be well received in the marketplace because of the uniqueness of the designs and the quality of the merchandise,” said Marian's agent Ritch Winter. “It’s a great opportunity for Marian to be involved with a company he and I think is creative and has great potential.”

In addition to the collection with 3-time Stanley Cup Champion Marian Hossa of the Chicago Blackhawks, PUCK HCKY has a Signature Series line of hockey apparel with Detroit Red Wing, Tomas Tatar, Anaheim Duck netminder Freddie Andersen, and a soon to be launched collection with the Ducks defenseman, Hampus Lindholm.
