Hey Guys... I work over at Oakley, and although The Hockey Company (CCM, Itech, Jofa, RBK) is the sole distributor of our visors now, Oakley makes them.

The visor that Ovechkin wore in the Montreal game was a Black Iridium Visor, made by Oakley of course and exclusive to Ovechkin. The "Iridium" is the mirror coating that goes on the visor to give it that reflective/mirror look. Ovechkin usually wears a 20% grey visor, which has no mirror coating on it all. Eric Weinrich wears a H.I. (High Intensity) Yellow visor when he plays.

The visors can mount on any helmet type regardless of brand, and offer not only the best optical quality in the industry, but exceed ANSI Z87.1 standards for high velocity and high mass impact. http://oakley.ca/technology/impact_protection/

Thought you guys might liek to know!
