Both guys had my arms pinned and I took a shot right to the nose and suffered the only bleeding nose of my life.

How long ago was that?

I know Hockey Canada made it mandatory in like 1980 for all registered participants, my area made it mandatory around '72 or '73ish. (birdies only, visors are not allowed in midget, even midgets in Jr (affiliates) have to wear full face)

Oh, you can still fight in midget, you will just have to suck up the ejection and 1 game suspension. I think these days you can fight up to 6 times before you sit for the season.
