I was a junior in HS, a goalie on our team, and had been battling with my coach to take off my hanging throat guard, which I felt didn't serve any purpose other than to get in my way when I was tracking pucks down at my skates.
After watching video of that, I certainly re-thought my position and never brought it up again...
My 10 Year Goalie needs to see this he has a neck guard but gives me problems with wearing the throat protector. (he is saying he is sweating too much with it on) I would like him to see this so he can understand why. Does any one have a working link, or a copy they can send to me.
One of the most brutal things I've ever seen. I remember when it happened because I laid up in the hospital at the time and all I did was watch TV, read, or sleep. That scene has always been etched in my mind.
