Obviously it won't hurt, but it's never been proven that a mouthguard does anything to prevent concussions. Hockey Quebec made them mandatory this season for all elite-levels. If you don't have one, or are caught chewing it during the play instead of having it in your mouth, you get 1 warning, and then it's a 10 minute misconduct.

Nothing like losing your "fair-play" point because of a mouthguard. If we miss 1st place by one-point at the end of the year I might flip... Sorry, went off on a tangent
