For the eighth straight year, visor use by NHL players has risen from the previous season – and now stands at a full 50 per cent of the league – according to a new survey compiled by The Hockey News….
When The Hockey News first began tracking visor usage during the NHL’s 1998-99 campaign, only 15 per cent of players shielded their eyes. By 2001-02, that number had increased to 28 per cent (191 players), and by 2005-06, 38 per cent (244 players) were wearing visors.
