The Art Of Skate Sharpening

from the LA Daily News,
Today, at 35, Rick Garcia is simply known as Rico, blade sharpener for the Los Angeles Kings. He's been with the team for nearly a decade, and his zeal for the job is even stronger this year after he took a deep pay cut during last season's labor dispute. Blade sharpening begins as a trade and transforms into an art form. With experience comes style, and then the players call you maestro. But these manipulators of steel have to win the respect of a team before their technique can be fully mastered.
