Ankle support is in the boot, not the tongue above the eyelets. I've also never sprained an ankle playing hockey.

In short, you are wrong.

Stock Easton S12's and I go tongue out. For me, it's a comfort thing. Guys have been wearing em like that for years.

FWIW, if you need the tongue up under your shins for proper support, chances are your skates don't fit correctly or you have some weak ass ankles.
