Boot tear in the heal

I just started skating again, after a long layoff, in February. Just went to a few public skates and stick and pucks before jumping into a low level league in July. I've basically been playing games once a week since then, with random stick and pucks thrown in here and there. Last week, during the game, I took a shot off the heal of my boot and when I went to throw my skates in my bag for tonight's game I noticed a decent tear in the heal that even went through the carbon fiber-ish material. I can't think of any other time when my skate has been smacked back there, and the cut isn't nice and clean like I'd figured another skate would have done. Wondering if this can be repaired? Should I even bother? I'm a bit annoyed that the skates are just ~8-9 months old and this happened.
