What Happened Here?

After a recent trip to the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, these skates really stood out for me from an equipment stand point. Looks like Lidstrom is a Step Steel user (Swedish player with Swedish steel, no surprise) but what probably caught your eye first was the huge chunk of skate missing on the left ankle.

Lidstrom took a puck to the left ankle days before the Winter Classic ’09 and it looks like their equipment staff must have added some extra protection in that area but later removed it? After a quick search on Getty Images there’s no photos of Lidstrom wearing these altered skates but if you’ve ever wondered what the inside of a Nike Bauer ONE95 looks like, here you are.
