Anyone have an idea of what this is? Or experience the same.
Sounds like a hip flexor. Make sure you stretch it before skating or working out. I had to go to physical therapy and all they did was stretch it and work on strengthening and stretching my hamstrings.

The stretch is pretty easy. One foot on the floor, bend you knee and bring the other knee to the floor. Now, drive your hips forward...make sure you keep you back straight.
