The Protective Sock

Just like wearing a visor, each player decides for themselves if they want to wear the protective sock.

But we can question why any of them don't. They may not prevent a cut, but I would think the cut may not be as bad if they do wear this type of sock.


Today, Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider brought the topic up to some of the Capitals players.

“I’ve been wearing them for probably three, four years I guess, pretty much when they came out.  I feel like they’re a regular sock but they’re more protective, so I don’t see a reason why I wouldn’t wear them,” Fehr said. “Some guys say they don’t like the feel but I don’t notice a difference.”
