    It's custom Itech for Kovalchuk and other guys like Hossa. Closest one you can buy is the Itech Aviator and grind the notches off by yourself.

    If you look right across from his ear on the lower part of the visor there looks like there is the Oakley O though. Maybe a custom Oakley?

    There's no visor there, that's the notch that was ground/cut off. The little 'O' you see is apart of the ear loops.

    yeah, it's the tab that goes through the hole in the earloop to hold it onto the helmet. sc37 is right.

    it's custom, Mission hand-cuts them from a template in-house.

    What would be the point in cutting it like that?

    probably the same reason to take off the ear guards, the feeling of free space. I actually feel kinda crammed with a half shield compared to a cage for the same reason(air gets through the cage so it feels more open than a half shield).
