I got a text from a friend this morning telling me that his equipment has been in storage since October. His "glove and blocker are like cement," and he can't put his hands in them. It's probably time he gets new gear, but he's supposed to be on the ice tonight. Any suggestions or quick fixes?
I keep a spray bottle of water in the garage with my gear and spritz it down lightly before stuffing it in the bag and heading off the rink. By the time I get to the locker room, it's loosened up and I spend a few minutes flexing everything back to softness.
