Effectively yes, fortunately all the bakes after were free so it isn't too much of a concern! Sadly, as hockey isn't too big over here they don't really have the kit for that sort of stuff (e.g. widening).
Have you got any advice for how to do it at home? I know exactly where the spot is on the skate so I don't imagine it would be too difficult?
