Yes it is.

For shinny outside, I'll wear elbow and knee pads, cheaper foam ones, just to take the impact off the hard joints. And of course my gloves. Had a friend who broke his elbow playing shinny in his late 20's. No fun.

Same thing at stick and puck or open skate, just don't want to risk losing 4-6 weeks of playing plus $2,000 in medical bills because I didn't put on my $10 pads.

Hockey, just wear full gear. Same if you're a newer player and learning to skate.
