Yeah, mouth guards in the U.S (I don't live in Canada, so I'm not sure), are required in most (I'm pretty sure all) high school hockey teams in the United States. I guess wearing mouth guards is less embarrassing for the player because it is small and goes inside your mouth, so not every fan can see it. But, lately these days, even in hockey, it's about fitting in and looks. Try to look as professional as you can, and I guess that doesn't mean wearing a supposedly "goofy, childish, embarrassing" neck guard. But hey, I would much rather be safe and look foolish (which I don't think they look foolish at all) then be severely injured or dead.
