He needs to have a boxer-type mouthguard at least, in addition to the half-visor, or better still in addition to a full-visor. Boxers wear such mouthguards for a reason, and hate to be caught in the ring without one. These mouthguards minimize the effect of a facial trauma on the brain, which otherwise are transferred via the jaw to the base of the brain with no damping whatsoever. Someone needs to start putting 2 and 2: many of these concussive injuries can be avoided. I would implement this league-wide.
