Skating stands out as one of the most crucial skills in hockey. Consequently, if your skates fall short, they can significantly impede your performance on the ice. It's essential to ensure their proper maintenance and sharpening to extend their lifespan and enhance your gameplay.
Sharpening your hockey skates is an important component of hockey equipment upkeep, frequently drawing parallels to the significance of maintaining a car's tires.
