thanks in advance,
Ok, this might sound crazy...but did you check the stick length? Maybe it's too short or maybe it too long. Sometimes, not all the time, heel hindering comes from an incorrect length of the stick. That is if I understand your question correctly.
Check the length of the stick by placing the blade on the ground and the stick shaft touching your nose. mark the stick just under you nose and then cut it on that mark for the proper length.
Now, maybe you are saying in your head...I know this dumb a**. But just because you have played college, doesn't mean you know. Why? I have seen too many college kids with the wrong length on their stick. And when I confronted them...they said they didn't know. Now just because you said college...was that College Club Hockey? You see, I don't know.
So this this first before you change!
