I think its more of a sticking your face in there, because you know your "safe". The point, I was trying to make is the US and Canada are free countries. We are adults, able to make decisions on our own. Now in those begginer and lower level adult leagues, it might be smart to wear a cage or whatnot, because guys arent in control of their sticks and shots. In upper level where guys are better players its less likely. and for the record I play at 2 different Park district rinks, so my taxes pay for them they arent privately owned. Now the other thing is I accept responsibilities for whatever injuries happen to me. Facial or otherwise.
