When determining length of hockey stick, do you measure the entire length of stick, including blade ?
Or, from edge of blade to top of stick when standing up? Looking to purchase the new CCM RBZ Junior stick for my son but not sure which one to get based on length of stick.

yes, you wold measure the whole stick. If you were cutting the stick you would just measure the shaft, but it would change the flex and there should be notches for that.

Ideally what you would want to do is stand the stick straight up on the "toe" of the blade. The general rule is when standing bare foot or in shoes the stick should be cut, if needed, just under the nose. If your son puts his skates on (better way) the end of the stick should come to his chin, head facing forward, if not a little lower.
