play catch with it, but really nothing else will help you a lot. Wrong he is right about playing catch with your glove but also you can take a hard ball about the size of the glove and stick it in the glove. You have to leave it in their all night. Then when you wake up you should take the ball out and start opening and closing your glove for a while. That should do the trick. also an easy way to break your glove in is put 2 pucks side by side, close your glove and put rubber bands around it as tight as it can be it doesn't take more than a half hour to make it easy to open and close

What I do is put a softball or other large-ish ball in the glove and leave it like that until I need to wear it. If the ball falls out, use some string to tie the glove closed around the ball. Hope that makes sense... Alternately, you could open the glove up flat and sit on it for a while...

A "hit" in hockey is when a player runs into, or otherwise impedes the progress of a player that has or had possession of the puck (within three seconds). A hit or "check" does not count if the player performing the check commits a penalty while doing so.
