Staal Brothers Will Start Wearing A Visor

from Katie Strang of ESPNNewYork,

Hurricanes captain Eric said his parents have been begging him to wear a visor for years; he plans to start on Tuesday.

"I've had someone extremely close to me go through something that you never want to see anyone go through," he told reporters.

Jordan said he and his brother discussed it together and decided to give it a try. And while there may be some time needed to get comfortable while wearing the new protective headgear, neither expects it to be a huge adjustment.

When the Hurricanes were in town to play the Rangers last week, Jordan told local media his mother made her opinions on the matter clear, but he said that "Staals can be stubborn sometimes."

“Staals can be stubborn sometimes.”

I guess they were really staaling on the switch to the half-shield.
