So, lemme get this straight: You've never played ice hockey before and you're signing up to have frozen rubber disks fired at you at high speeds, while wearing skates?

I admire your courage.

I see from your login name that you're a Devils fan. If you're in Central/Northern NJ I recommend the pro shop at the Beacon Hill Club in Summit. It's a private club but the shop is open to the public and the staff is really well-informed, courteous and thorough. I bought a pair of skates there a couple years back and they did a great job of measuring my feet, finding the perfect size and then baking/stretching/punching for a gapless fit. You're not going to find many bargain-basement prices there but if you're concerned about not having enough knowledge to find the right equipment at the right sizes, etc., it's worth the extra $$$

The same is probably true of many other shops attached to/near rinks where school or club teams play, so if you find one you should be in good shape.

Good luck and have fun!
