Actually, getting blisters indicates that your skate is moving, chafing against your skin despite your lacing them as tight as possible. Not sure if your laces are stretching as you play or maybe it's the leather of your skate. What are you wearing for socks? I'd strongly advise using something made of nylon that will wick away the sweat. The more moisture in your boot, either from a cotton sock or no sock at all, the more slippage you'll see inside your skate and the higher probability of blisters. Also, make sure you tighten your skate from the bottom up past your ankle.

Only other things I can think of are your skates are old and aren't giving you the support you need anymore OR your feet are two different sizes
