    is it legal to move through a teammate who is immediately adjacent to an opposing skater in order to block the opposing skater?


    it seems like it would be, but isn’t specifically covered in the rules.

    Sure is! From the Skater Movement section:

    Any skater may pass through any other skater of like color.

    And from the Blocking section:

    Skaters may end a move by pushing an opposing in-play skater one tile in the same direction, so long as the following tile is vacant or out-of-bounds.

    It’s really no different than skating through a teammate to block an opposing skater a few tiles away from them.
