    Does anyone know why Sidney is wearing a full shield instead of his usual half shield? Just curious....

    Because he's under 18, it's mandatory.

    Ah, I see. I thought he took a puck to the face in practice in or something. Thanks.

    Of course, the real answer is that he's afraid to mess up his pretty smile. Crosby has aspirations of a modeling career once this "hockey thing" is over.

    This is correct. Phil Kessel is required to wear one for Team USA.

    Funny how the TSN commentators said "Yemelin is not required to wear a face-mask, but chooses to anyway"

    Technically, it would be only safe to have everyone wear face masks and neck guards but on the other hand, we shouldn't have to worry about high sticks, that is just stupid and cheap.

    I did see crosby as the only Canadian with a neck guard on. So I assume that Neck guards and full face shields are mandatory for all those under 18.

    The only reason I can think of is that they are minors and therefore there are probably some legal issues. I wonder if they could wear the visor if they get parental consent ;) :D

    If I'm not mistaken, isn't the CHL the only league that lets junior players of all ages wear a visor? I know in the NCAA they all wear them and all the underagers in Europe seem to be wearing them.

    When you are a hockey player and turn eighteen you become a man and your eyeballs toughen up to the point that most blows to the retina with a hockey stick can be casually shrugged off.

    Until that time it is better to err on the side of safety.

    I guess if you're not over 18 yrs of age, you still need permission from your parents to play in these tournaments.

    It could also be that your body hasn't fully developed and these are requirements to protect your your fragile body, until it has fully developed.
     
  23. AND his name doesn't rhyme with bagel.

    I heard Crosby is going to wear the full shield when he makes it to the show too because Brendan Shanahan threatened to kill him or something like that.

    No its in the offical IIHF rule book that all players under 18 are required to wear a full shield .. the neck brace thing is his own choice not manditory but designed to protect against cross checks to the back of the net from Dman clearing the crease ..

    Why would Sid worry about a senior citizen? (at the rate the negotiations are going...)
