Hurt my right wrist last summer and I've been fighting it ever since. For the first month I wore the smallest wrist guard I could find (one with a metal bar). That allowed me to play but it definitely comes at the expense of stick handling. There is no way I could play without it. One problem is that it stretched out my right glove so I picked up some new ones that provided really good support at the wrist for when I would fall.
Now I just use stick tape and wrap it around about 3-4 times around the wrist and it seems to work pretty good. Like others have said, I am really careful during the day not to screw it up while I'm not on the ice. I should probably do some strengthening exercises too but I've been kind of lazy about that...
