OHL Goes To Mandatory Neck Guards

via The Record,

The Ontario Hockey League will force all of its players to wear neck protection starting next week.

The league has annouced mandatory neck protection must be worn by all players effective March 10.

Update March 6th, 2008 - 12:23pm ET:
From CTV,

A new group named “Keep neck guards out of the OHL” was created on Facebook early Wednesday morning. By Thursday afternoon, more than 180 people joined the group on the popular social networking website to sound off on the new regulation. 

One group member wrote, “We might as well put the cage on if we have to wear neck guards.”

Another hockey player posted a note saying he simply won’t wear it. “I probably shouldn’t be in this league anyway but I’ll be pumping gas before I will wear a neck guard,” he wrote.
