Lastly, if you haven't ever played hockey with full gear, you wouldn't have any idea how incredibly HOT you can get, neck guard would be awful. I sweat like I'm in a sauna in full gear, anything else would be unbearable.
And the shorter gloves still protect the wrist, and way better for dexterity, leave the gloves alone.
MOD Neck guards are mandatory in pretty much every league except the NHL. They don't bother you in any way and can literally save your life.
Sorry, but I don't sweat from my neck very often.
