Hockey Stick(redirected from Hockey Stick Projection)
Also found in: Dictionary, Thesaurus, Medical.
A period of rapid growth followed by little or no growth. A hockey stick may represent a start-up that is enormously successful at first and remains stable afterward, but does not continue to grow. It derives its name from the fact that, when plotted on a chart, it looks slightly like an upside down hockey stick.
