I wear a full cage, and when I'm in net I have a mask with a fully certified cage on it. I like my face and my teeth the way they are. When I switch back and forth it takes about 3 minutes to not even see the bars anymore.

An acquaintance of mine used to wear a shield. In a pickup game with a bunch of experienced hockey players he took a puck to the eye. It was a tipped shot that flukily went almost straight up under his shield. Broken nose, broken orbital bone, and damage to his eyeball.

After a couple of surgeries and lots of time off work he's back to playing. He told me that every single guy who saw him get hit and the blood and the aftermath is now wearing a cage.
