These masks are flatter to the face so a puck would still bruise or bleed the face area and even concus them. Not to mention the sweating actor because it is so close to the face.

With a "Grandfathered" helmet rule I'm sure it falls under the same to goalies as well that they need to wear a helmet, these masks probably are CSA approved and that is why you don't see them either.

Close to this would be Tim Thomas, he has a cross version of this.
