You'll be shocked by the price, especially if your grandson has feet that are shaped differently then the retail model. Different skates fit differently, and if you want a specific skate and your foot doesn't fit, you have to order custom skates, which tends to be about a $100 markup.
Ovechkin is using the CCM U+ skate BTW. MSRP on those is $639.99. If you do those, make sure you can try them or have them made and make sure the fit is perfect.
Oh, and if he's not playing at least at a travel league level there's no way he needs that level skate. Even at that level he doesn't really need it.
