Frozen Hockey Equipment on Gameday, at work...

So, Im 22 years old, I still live with my parents, however I have a full time job. I intentionally brought my bag in the other day so I could wash my jersey socks etc...which i never did anyway. I play Open Hockey on Friday nights at 5:00 without fail. It's the only time of the week I get to play right now until I join a mens league.

Anyway, so i go hastly looking for my bag this morning only to find my dad put it outside on the deck in 20 degree weather with wind gusts of 40 that make it feel like 11 degrees outside...All my equipment is in essence frozen, especially my skates.


Any suggestions to dethawing these while im here at work so I can be ready to go at 5:00....I work in an office.

I keep a little hair dryer - a few moments of hot air in my skates and blocker/trapper and they are warm and slimy instead of cold and crunchy.

Spread it all out in the office. Your co-workers will love you.

Any closed area that isn't used, claim it. In my last three office buildings, there were at least two coat closets on each floor and none of them were used... would be a nice location. Do you have clients, bosses, etc coming into your office? If not, just leave it in your corner and, if it really stinks, close the door.

Wherever you leave it, if it leaves a stink a 50/50 solution of vinegar/water will take the smell away nicely. Ask the janitorial staff nicely and they might even have a bottle on hand.

I leave my gear on my balcony, so it's frozen every time I play.

Either lay it out around your office (with the blessings of your co-workers, of course) or suck it up and wear it. Frozen gear isn't too bad as long as your undergarments aren't soaked.

Take it like a man?

Lay it out somewhere, or get to the rink early and find a warm spot to lay it out, or a spot in the sun.

Oh heck yes. the only things I can't stand frozen are my skates and gloves. But I have a paint stripper heat gun type of thing that I use that de-ices everything in seconds

well, if you want to "dethaw" your gear, then i suggest you keep all your gear outside so it stays frozen. if you want to "defrost" your gear, then get to the rink early with a heat gun/blow dryer and go to town on everything. and depending on how new the rink is, you might have the hot air hand dryers in the change rooms so you might as well take full advantage of that. there's only maybe 4 rinks where i am that even have hand dryers to use...
