About two years ago when I started playing hockey I had no gear. I didn?t have any pads, a helmet, or gloves. I was starting from scratch. So I had to find a pro-shop to buy all the pads needed to play. I was also going to have to buy a pair of skates and a stick. All these are very important when it comes to playing a physical sport like ice hockey. So I decided to get a membership to a ice rink to get some discounts on hockey gear.
