Then go get a custom one done. And yes when you take a shot in the head it'll affect your jaw as it gets bumped into the lower part of your brain. It's the most common type of concussion.
Aren't mouth guards already mandatory in the US, but neck guards aren't?
I heard they were debating whether or not they were doing the job as apparently in some incidents the blade slipped on the guard and actually cut the person higher up on the neck.
That is why I wear one even though I'm in beer league. You always get some noob skater and falls over and topples everyone over..or they fall and start flailing their arms and legs. I mean that's how Zednik got cut...from Jokinen taking a tumble and having his leg kick up in the process.
