that's exactly what they are. some guys are wearing them during actual games, most guys don't. you will see a lot of guys wearing them during practice though to prevent any busted bones and bruises that would cause them to miss games. the newer skates have less internal padding than older traditional boots. not to say the older style boots protect you much, they don't do much. you will also see guys using them after coming back from foot problems for that extra measure of protection.
