One rink I have to. Another one I don't. The pick up group that I play with and don't wear one everyone has played for 30+ years and most have made money playing. They all know how to play and know what they are doing. In 20 years playing with them I have gotten 10 stitches. After I finished playing competitive hockey I tried an advanced adult league and had to wear a helmet. In 2 years I got 40 stitches 2 broken cheekbones, a broken nose and a fractured orbital bone. The helmet hasn't made as much difference as the people I played with and me not putting myself in stupid positions. I also had teeth knocked out wearing a full cage because I wasn't wearing a mouthguard.
