Let me know what you think!
I believe Mark Messier's come out with a new line of helmets, launched 2 or 3yrs ago that purportedly do offer considerably more protection than those that were or are currently available from various manufacturers. And no mistake, this is a very serious issue, as post concussion syndrome can be an incredibly debilitating & life altering condition with extremely grave consequences for those affected by it.... and my sympathies to you & yours. Cant be an easy thing to deal with almost every waking minute. Beyond sad really.
