When you go to get them sharpened, get a shallow hallow put on your blades...if the guy looks at you quizically, then go to another shop until you can find someone who knows what that means.

The skates will be less sharp and won't dig into the ice as much.

Also make sure yoru skates are in square. Ask someone at a hockey shop to show you the difference. It will make a huge impact on your skating if your skates are out of square.
