It has long been thought that when visors were eventually mandated in the NHL the rule would only apply to new players entering the league.
But might everyone be forced to wear one starting next season?
The NHL Players’ Association is currently polling its membership on that very question and will take the results to next week’s competition committee meeting, according to a source.
A survey being circulated by the union has asked players to indicate whether they favour the status quo (freedom of choice), the introduction of a rule grandfathering visors for rookies or mandatory use by all.
