OHL Players Don’t Like Neck Guards

from the Barrie Examiner,

...an informal survey of players practising at the Barrie Molson Centre this week revealed neck protection is not popular among this OHL team.

“I’m not for it. I’m against it,” 19-year-old forward Cory McGillis said as he and his teammates got re-acquainted with neck guards this week. They will wear them for the first time in a game tomorrow. “I haven’t worn one for five years. It’s just annoying.”

“Graduating out of ‘AAA’, I was relieved to get rid of the neck guard,” rookie forward Marcus Pepe said. “It was always a pain in the butt, and it was gross throwing on wet. I find it really uncomfortable.

“But I guess it saves lives, right?”
