I am looking for ice hockey skates for my 10 year old son. He is a forward, 5 feet tall, weighs 100 pounds and wears a size 10 shoe. What is the best skate value for the money, where best means a price tag between $C150 to $250.

We have been burned twice this year in buying the wrong size of skate, once with roller blades and then with ice skates. The pair of ice skates he has now are used Koho 2280. The problem is that their size is 9.5, which is way to big (I have confirmed this).
We have always bought used as he goes through a pair a year or so due to growth, but I am tired of getting skates that are rather the wrong type or wrong size or wrong anything.
If we make the plunge into the purchase of new skates, what is a good intermediate brand/model that has value but will not bankrupt us?
