Young Player's Life is Saved By Wearing a Neckguard
A scary incident happened during a u16 AAA hockey game that saw a player's neck get cut by a skate blade. Luckily, this player was wearing a neck guard which effectively saved his life. Hockey Eastern Ontario recently shared a photo of the player's neck, sharing a message about the importance of neck guards.
Continues the Conversation Around Mandatory Neck Guards
The incident forces hockey executives at all levels to consider mandating neck guards at all levels. While many junior and minor hockey leagues mandate neck guards already, this should be another message to professional leagues to mandate the important life saving piece of equipment.
The fight to mandate neck guards will continue across leagues as the conversation and advocacy pushes forward.
