Why don't kids and teenagers use neck guards anymore?

these days, that's just insane. I took up goal a months ago and i use the hanging plastic type, which I hear is better protection as your neck takes no shock compared to the wrap around type.
A s a goalie i have been in situation where my head was on the ice and people are skating near me though... pretty scary.
Belive it or not but Roberto Luongo dosen't wear a neck guard or the plastic thing on his mask.
But in Canada it is mandatory for kids playing in minor hockey to wear them, im not sure about higher levels though.
