Aside from the neck and the face (which are the most obvious parts), what other body parts are exposed and have no/minimal protection against skate blades?
I know that most shin pads wrap around the leg and thus cover the back, but I thought that they really only covered the
of the back of the leg and not the upper (towards the back of the joint) and lower (the top of the boot) parts of the leg. Also, what about the forearms and the midsection (inbetween the hockey pants and the shoulder pads)?
I'm just curious to know what other parts of the body are open.
