Right now I wear a low quality throat protector... the same one I've been wearing for 20 years, plus a shield.
Today my shield was broken by a helluva slapshot.
Do I just buy a new shield (and use my old throat protector), or go with a high quality throat protector, but no shield? I'm not bothered by the shield, in fact I think it gives me some confidence... Do non shield goalies feel confident in their throat protection?
Last year my larynx was fractured by a freak deflection and my shield jumping funny, and the puck getting to my throat- the one game where I forgot my protector. The puck was deflected a foot in front of me and went straight up. (And it got fractured again a month ago playing soccer). My voice is now **** and my thoughts of a singing career are over.
More experienced goalies- would a high end throat protector have helped?
And generally, what are other goalies out there wearing?
