Usually the toe of the blade is rising up to a degree, some are worse than others. Any help would be appreciated
length of the stick varies. the standard is up to your chin when you're on skates. But some forwards will go with a shorter stick for better puck handling. While defenseman will often go with a longer stick for better poke checking and such.
