Taking The Shame Out Of The Shield

from Robert Tchykowski of the Edmonton Sun:

There have always been a number of NHL players - larger than many would suspect - who’d really like to wear a visor, but don’t, because they’re afraid of the peer pressure.
The age-old dilemma - eyes or pride - is something they no longer deal with in the AHL, where the first year of mandatory visors is being greeted with mixed reviews.
“Some of the older guys who haven’t worn one for years were a little bitter about it,” said Kyle Brodziak, who spent most of this season in Wilkes-Barre.
“But a lot of guys were also relieved because the decision was taken out of their hands. Everyone has to wear (one).”
