I recently got my skates sharpened at SportChek and a couple days later I played hockey however whenever i tried to stop my skates would sputter along the ice and wouldnt dig in and spray up snow. I basically had to go back to when i was first learning to skate when i was 5 and stop by pointing my toes together.
This is not a case of me not being able to stop because I have played hockey for 13+ years and am a proficient skater.
What could be the reason for this? I have a few speculations which are:
1) Sportchek somehow screwed up the sharpening
2) Skate blade is too thick (Maybe sportchek took off the profiling with the last sharpen)
3) I was skating on an outdoor rink so maybe the ice was bad.
If anyone thinks any of these could be the cause or you have any input id love to hear it.
