2023.06.07 03:58 ShadowXJ Petr Sykora's number in 1999 IIHF World Championships

Hello fellow hockey fans,
I recently came into possession of a Team Czech jersey (from the 1998-2000 era) that was worn by the national team during the 98 Olympics and the World Championships.
Petr Sykora is my favourite player, and I'm considering getting it crested with:
(This matches his cresting at the Olympics) -
But wanted to know if anyone knows what number he wore at the 1999 World Championships, I want to make sure I get a name/letter combination that isn't a jersey foul (ie: he actually wore). So just want to check in and see if he wore 17 or 39 during that tournament. I'm having trouble finding photos online, so thought I'd ask here. It's a small thing, but just preferring to get a combination that is only SYKORA, rather than P.SYKORA which he wore at the Olympics due to Michal Sykora being on the team as I understand.
Appreciate any help!

2023.06.07 03:37 Ok-Curve5569 Skate sharpenings with the Sparx FIRE (flat inside radius edges)

Recently took my skates to a new spot a little further from home than the normal spot that uses the Sparx platform. Received a FIRE grind. Skated a few times and have really liked the increased bite. For those who’ve also had a FIRE sharpening, pros? Cons? Do your skates stay as sharp between sharpening at traditional hollow cuts?

2023.06.06 20:59 LadyRyissa Romance novel about a figure skater who reluctantly becomes a pairs skater

I am looking for a teen or young adult novel where the main character is training to be an olympic figure skater. She has trouble landing a triple axel or triple lutz, which is why she's not winning competitions, and is also struggling with her social life because she has to practice all the time. She calls in sick for a practice to hang out with her boyfriend, but her coach sees her and she knows she's busted. When she meets with her coach, she says she can't work with her anymore and sends her to a new coach, for pairs skating. She's partnered with a former hockey player and I think his name is Kai. He was injured and is recovering and really doesn't want to do pairs skating. They start out antagonistic towards each other but have a lot of chemistry. They kiss after successfully pulling off the death spiral in practice, and there is some love triangle drama.
They go to a competition at the end of the book in silver outfits to resemble robots.
I read this way back in the late 90s/early 2000s, and I don't remember if it was part of a series or a standalone.

2023.06.06 14:12 MysticInept ELI5 why are crossovers faster?

I started ice skating this year at almost 40 (just moved from the southwest to the north and we found out we really like it and hockey).
I'm working on crossovers, and I get that I need to learn them and they come up as a hockey skating topic a lot (I might try playing in the future). I get that they are supposed to be faster on a curve.
But I'm having trouble visualizing why. Suppose I am practicing going clockwise on the center circle. Intuitively, it seems balancing on my right foot outer edge and generating force by pushing off with my left foot would be faster than pushing off with left foot, crossing over, small push with right foot, bringing right foot back, pushing off with left...
what am I missing? Apologies ahead of time for being a little obtuse. I'm not a kinesthetic learner, so I don't pick up physical things intuitively.

2023.06.06 13:36 MonsterBash716 Improving\fixing a 9 year old player's Hockey Stride

So my daughter has been on skates since 4 and started playing hockey around 6. It wasn't until about 6 months ago she started to REALLY taking interested in the game and wanting to improve...and most importantly willing to work at it. We've done quite a few clinics and shoot 100s of pucks a week in the basement over those last 6 months. She's not an naturally athletic persons and has to work hard on darn near everything
She has greatly improved in all aspects of the game (actually beyond my expectations), can pick corners amazingly well..and her edge work has caught up with the higher level players of her age. Her 'starts' are acceptable and constantly working on that.
Where she lacks horribly is her stride..she still 'runs' on the ice.
She fine playing house and even travel, but it's super noticeable playing in the higher level spring select teams
We've watched videos...worked on it on the ice together...livebarned stuff...clinics...skating coaches... slide board..etc. I just can't breaker her of the habit.
There's a local speed skating school that offers some discounted lessons for young kids that wanna try it. I figure they probably have the perfect skating stride and might be able to crack her. We might try that but they don't start for quite a few months
So I'm looking for some advice from the experts here... tips...tricks...suggestion or maybe that one little thing that will make it go 'CLICK' for her. Dryland would be a plus as we're taking a month break from the ice. But anything and everything welcomed!

2023.06.06 05:45 verisfly Sharpening EDC knives.

I recently got a TSPROF Kadet Pro. I have it set up and all, but am unsure what grit I should be sharpening my knives at.
I have mostly S30V and M390 blades I’m wanting to sharpen, is there a relevant chart to show what grit(s)I need to use for a “workhorse/everyday carry” knife?
I am aware of the leather strop making a huge difference, but other than that, any tips would be huge on this journey of sharpening my EDC knives.

2023.06.06 01:39 rndbpm Observations from a beginner 2 months in…

40M, started with no experience aside from a handful of times I’ve skated casually as a kid.
I can now do all these things to a degree of confidence high enough to tackle some winding, mildly hilly trails. - plows - drag/t/l stop - soul slide - lunge/power stop - parallel turns/carving - crossovers
So, I think I have enough skills under my belt to share some observations that I think might be helpful for other beginners looking for the same answers I was. - I bought Oxelo MF500s. Size 43 had my toes scrunched so I got 44. Good length as my longer foot just fit. Little did I know due to lack of experience, I couldn’t judge well that they did not fit well width wise. It wasn’t until I started skating and learning parallel turns / one foot glides that I had lateral movement in the boot particularly with my smaller foot. I think this impacted my ability to balance well on that foot. - I bought Superfeet Hockey Carbon Pro insole which solved the lateral movement issue. - the better fit also allowed me to loosen my upper buckle while having better stability than before with the looser lateral fit and tighter buckle. I was really surprised that I preferred to loosen the upper buckle. - a looser upper buckle allows me to get on my inner and outer (especially the outer) edges easier which is important for quick changes in direction and tight parallel turns - I had trouble drag stopping while using my right leg as the balance leg. I would pull to the left every time I engaged the drag foot. I solved this by getting on my right outer edge more which allows me to better steer while dragging. I discovered this by comparing what I was doing while braking with my left as the balance leg. - a powerstop is really a very sharp parallel turn. I realized I was doing this stop while practicing sharp turns. And, now, this is how I am strengthening my powerstop on my weak side. I don’t practice the powerstop. I practice very sharp turns and my weak side powerstop will improve naturally as a result. - my crossover got MUCH better once I stopped looking down and instead looking in the direction I wanted to go - getting the inside leg on its outer edge, leaning into the turn, and looking in the direction you want to go are key to parallel turns - don’t worry about balanced rocker frames or 90mm wheels not being for beginners, I got the Endless 90 ES and LOVE them. Much more stable and nimble than the stock 243mm frames on the Oxelo. The small frame wasn’t great for my size 44 foot.
Like I said, I’m just a beginner. So, if anyone with more experience has more advice to add or corrections to make, I’m all ears!!!
Also, from the list of skills above, for someone looking to venture out into the burbs next, aside from perfecting existing skills, what would you prioritize next? I have jumps and curbs on my list.

2023.06.06 00:28 MotorFollowing Surface Rust on brand new blades

Surface Rust on brand new blades
I just bought a pair of CCM AS 590 skates ($580 CAD) with V step blades ($150 CAD) from source for sports.
I opened up the package at home and there's surface rust on the top edge (edge that fits into the holders).
Is this anything to be concerned about? Would it turn into something problematic over time?
They're the only ones they had on hand in my size.
Should I bring it up and return them or ask if they can clean it up?
I haven't gotten them sharpened yet, I took them home first just to take my time with the fit before I do anything with them. I'm going back to get the heat molded and sharpened.

Tryout in less than 2 weeks, hand cut and stitches, what can be done to minimize the impact
Happened right before a skate in bathroom, someone pushed him, hand got cut by metal, lots of blood on his hand when I saw him, 3 hours urgent care, few stitches, tryout in less than 2 weeks.
What can we do to minimize the impact?
All those early morning 5:30, 6 and 7 am practices, 300 puck shooting everyday, only watching hockey on youtube no cartons... my son is heartbroken
My son is righty, cut is on left hand, tried use right hand to practice but not really effective!!

2023.06.05 19:45 ColonelFedj Scott Wheeler's 2023 Draft Rankings
I know a lot of us are all aboard the Fantilli hype train, but we were all aboard the Bedard hype train too until that didn't pan out. I figure it would be good to get excited about other guys we might take at 2OA incase GMPV isn't thinking Fantilli is the right choice. So I pulled some snippets from Scott Wheeler's article ranking the top 100 players in the 2023 Draft.
(excerpts will be written like this)
Here's where he ranks the top 5 skaters: Tier 1 1.) Bedard- 5'10 185lbs Obviously in a tier of his own, unfortunately is likely Chicago's.
Tier 2 2.) Michkov- 5'10 172lbs He has Michkov rated as the 2nd best player but admits that the uncertainty around his ability to leave Russian is cause for concern.
3.) Fantilli- 6'2 195lbs
Profile Fantilli is a big, strong, powerful center who takes pucks from the wall to the interior with force, ease and speed — the kind of player every team covets. He can beat you along the wall on the cycle. He can beat you carrying the puck in rotations around the perimeter of the offensive zone. He can beat you by pushing through lanes to the middle third, driving the net, or dropping a shoulder to take space that isn’t there. He can beat you flying out wide. He has regularly blown me away in viewings these last couple of years (at Hockey Canada’s showcase two summers ago, in games where he looked like a man among boys in the USHL, and again at various points throughout his historic, Hobey Baker-winning freshman year at Michigan).
And even at 6-foot-2 and about 195 pounds, he’s one of the best skaters in this draft. It’s not often we see players his size who can move like him. His skating is balanced. It’s powerful when it needs to be and light and adjustable when it needs to be. Within his movement patterns, he can handle the puck on a string and shade opposing defenders off his hip. He’s going to be a transition monster. On top of it all, he’s physical, he’s a fiery competitor, he’ll get after it on forecheck and track pucks, he plays with energy, and he’ll pounce on turnovers and be opportunistic. He can score from midrange consistently with his low-kick wrister and one-timer, he’s got an ability to protect the puck in and out of coverage, he’s got a dangerous curl-and-drag wrister, and he’s comfortable in traffic. When he’s on, he can completely take over a game.
He also shed some of the force-it plays this year that could frustrate me and others at lower levels (he made better decisions on shot selection, overhandled less, and utilized his linemates better). I think he’s going to play in the NHL next year and be successful on raw ability from the jump. And I wasn’t deterred from that belief by his low point totals at men’s worlds. Once he refines and rounds out his game some more and adds more muscle as he ages, watch out.
4.) Carlsson- 6'2 198lbs
Profile Though he doesn’t play the game with some of the shine of the three players in front of him, Carlsson had a tremendous age-adjusted season between his play with Orebro in the SHL (including in the playoffs), at the world juniors (where he was one of Sweden’s top forwards despite playing sick/banged up), and then for the senior men’s national team for the first time (a team he is now the youngest player to ever score for), even considering his December 2004 birthday. This all came a year after playing to virtually two points per game at the J20 level (he looked good in an important role as a top-nine centre for Sweden at U18 worlds before an injury kept him out of their medal-round run to a gold medal, too).
Carlsson’s a big kid who has begun to come into his body (he’s 6-foot-3 and 198 pounds), but he’s also got slick handling and finesse for a forward his size, regularly finding his way through traffic or around it by out-waiting defenders one-on-one in shielded puck protection off of his hip. He stays on pucks, he’s got great instincts and takes smart routes around the ice, he’s sound positionally, he applies pressure off of the puck and comes up with possession despite not being very physical, and he just always seems to be involved in positive things inside the offensive zone. His skating also continues to improve (he’s not fast, but he’s an above-average skater for his size by my measure and it shouldn’t be preventative in him reaching his NHL upside). His long stick can limit him catching and handling pucks in his feet at times, and he doesn’t have a great shot, but those things should come, he’s got soft hands and standout finesse skill as a passer, and he’s got great dexterity and reflexes all told.
Carlsson’s also one of the smartest players in the draft and understands spacing and timing on and off the puck at an advanced level for his age. And while he played almost exclusively as a winger in the SHL the last two seasons, Carlsson came up as a centre and I like the way his game might fit there long term because of his combination of size, detail, talent and awareness. He projects as a pass-first playmaking centre with a middle-six floor, first-line potential, and clear PP value (in multiple roles, too, because he’s great around the net and below the goal line passing low to high, but can also run it from the flank).
5.) Smith- 6'0 181lbs He's been shooting up a ton of draft boards, and even though he hasn't cracked the top 3 in any that I've seen yet, I wouldn't be surprised if he does the closer we get to the draft.
(Sorry if the formatting sucks, I'm on moblue while on break at work lmao)

2023.06.05 19:28 Zealousideal_Abies94 Skates

Firstly, how long have you been playing? Second, when you guys are airing out your stuff, why do you take the soles and the blades out of your skates?
I’ve been playing hockey for 30 years and I rarely if ever do this.
Lastly, I was born with no sense of smell.
EDIT - One more thing. I rarely if ever buy new skates. Always find something worth while at my local Play It Again. And only buy new skates every 10-15 years. So that’s a little insight in my mentality.

2023.06.05 17:11 Sulphure885 New Players or Returning Players

Hello everyone!
I used to play a lot of hockey as a kid. My Grandad was an off-ice official for a minor league team, I attended their camps and played a lot of street hockey. In short life happens and we moved and I haven’t played in an organized setting in 18 years, and I haven't played at all in 12 years.
Recently, I found a rink close by that has a Men's league and I've decided to pick it back up. I'm going to the ice 2-3 times a week, attending stick times to work on things again, and I've felt like a newborn baby deer first learning how to walk. But, I've finally after about 15 hours on the ice finally got a hockey stop back.
So I wanted to share with you all what I've learned so far in this process, and hopefully, it can help someone else.
Hockey Sticks - The last stick I owned was 3 pieces - Plug at the top, aluminum shaft, and a screw that went into a composite or fiberglass almost type material blade. Things have changed a lot.
My suggestion is, instead of going off "recommended flex rating charts", if you're going to buy a $350-400 stick, I have a few options to consider.
Look at buying 2-3 other entry-level sticks with different kick points, different flex points, and try 1 or 2 blade options. Up to that $350 range, find what you like, then buy a nice stick in the price range you want once you figure out what works best for you.
Just starting back, I was recommended a 102 flex, and I can barely get the 87 flex I bought to bend out of the gate. If you don’t want to “experiment” with $400, then go to a shop with synthetic ice and try to get a stick to flex. Keep in mind, the synthetic ice has a higher friction coefficient, so you need to go down to get the same feel on the ice.
Also, go to stick time at your local rink, talk with some of the guys in the locker room, and see if they'll let you try their stick for a few shots and see what you like.
Equipment - Equipment has changed a lot and apparently now changes close to every June. I bought what was the closeout for last year's model, and it's better than what we had before, and I like it.
One thing I would say is to go to a pro shop and try it on. I did multiple measurements online and went to a pro shop, and I almost always went down 1 size. Example: I have big hands and short fingers, so when you measure from your middle finger to your wrist, if your middle finger doesn’t touch your wrist (on a closed palm) you’ll be a size too large. Like your finger won’t line up with the breaks in the padding.
Jerseys and Pants - If you're a bigger guy like myself (6' and over 240), good luck in standard Bauer cuts and tapered fits in other lines. CCM Tacks has a 2XL pant that's a "classic" cut. You can get a set of suspenders with them, and you can use those from 250-300+ lbs. They aren't too long; they have good breathability to them and are less than $150. CCM jerseys fit well if you're a bigger guy. For 250-300, a 2XL fits great with pads.
Skates - First of all, go to an actual store with a 3D scanner. I tried measuring three times, taking multiple ratios, and using the foot outline technique, but it still didn't work for me. I ordered a set of skates online and they were a full size too big with a standard cut when I needed a wide. Then, I went to a pro shop with no scanner, and even though the guy had been doing it for years, he still gave me a skate that was half a size too big and half a size too narrow. Finally, I went to a Bauer Fit center and found out I was actually a size 8.5 with a High Volume Wide cut boot.
So, my suggestion is, if you haven't been in skates in a long time and have no idea what your boot size is, buy CCMs. They have a 60+ exchange policy on their skates, and no one else will take their stuff back once it's been baked / sharpened. In short, if you can wear a "Puma," you'll probably have little to no issues. But if you need a "NewBalance Wide," you'll probably go through a few pairs before you find the right one. Just go with a company that allows you to swap stuff out before you get stuck with paperweights.
Overall, my advice is to do a lot of research and take it with a grain of salt because what works for others may not work for you. Keep your original boxes and don't make any customizations or modifications until you're sure you're keeping something, and keep the original boxes for the duration of their return windows, just in case.
Hope this helps, Someone!

What shin guards are these?
Saw a hockey coach with these small shinguards on IG. I was looking for something small like this to throw in a small bag with my skates for public skate or shinny too.

2023.06.05 05:19 Comfortable_Hat5699 Blade Sharpening in Northern California

Hey everyone! Looking to find my long-term partnership with a sharpener. Right now I go to Avanta in Hayward and I really like them! They've been great to me, but there are some mixed feelings from some of the coaches I work with. Right now I'm in Matrix Legacy Blades—I'm aware that there's a unique mount for them. I'm also considering the future where I'd invest in JW Gold Seals. Some other places I've heard of but haven't gone to yet:
Any other places or reviews would be greatly appreciated!
