I've been playing for 18 years, since day 1 always wore a visor, have never been hit in the mouth. Had 5 teeth pulled in May and 1 broken tooth fixed-most likely from clinching my teeth when I played hockey. So it's not always about getting a direct shot, it could be from years of damage. So I decided to finally put on a cage and bought the Under Armour Bite Guard so at least I have some sort of protection between my upper and lower teeth. It's not that I'm not tough or that I'm afraid of the dentist it just seems dumb to me to put myself at risk each time I play. I think the day is coming that rec leagues will require cages, think about the insurance and injury costs that could be saved by mandating cages.
