    I just found out if you are born in after 1974 you have to wear a visor or a cage (My BD is 1985) well i had already brought my helmet which is a CCM HT492

    I have looked around and there doesnt seem to be any visors made for CCM which is probably what i would prefer playin in, so can u use like Oakly or am i missing them, i have found cages.

    Doesn't matter what brand...and I think CCM makes a visor, it's a different design that allows you to flip it up when your on the bench. Just find a visor you like, and get the right size so it'll fit your helmet/head and should be good to go.

    pretty much all visors will fit that helmet.

    i have an itech HS22 with that same helmet, and it fit with the hardware they give you.

    Man go with the Bauer 5000 or the new one 8000 I think for a comfortable fit and great protection. I avoid CCM as they have never fit me well. I guess this is personal opinion so you can ignore it. But I use the 5000 with a Bauer mirror visor like Malkin used in Russia. I ordered the tint and they sent the mirror felt like a D-bag at first but it has never fogged up on me and alot of goalies in my league say they cant see my eyes... Its true I have actually produced a lot better as of late by picking a spot and putting it there with little reaction from the goalie.

    I'd recommend against the helmet if you have a history of head injuries or you're playing check. BTW a 692(one step above the 492 and the beginning of pro level helmets) will just cost you about $15-20 more and it was(and might still be) the most common helmet in the NHL. Don't want to scare you because it will work for most house leagues, I would just advice against it if it's going to be a checking league.

    You can attach most visors to most helmets, the only ones with issues are the ones that are fixed and attach at the side where you would attach j-clips. The solution to that is spacers, you see spacers on the helmets of most nhlers with half shields.

    I got high sticked tonight and was glad that I never switched over to a visor from a full cage (been contemplating the switch for months but tonight's incident settles it).
