Saw it during the France/Finland game. Strange looking thing, but maybe it's just because I haven't seen it before.

That would be Pierre-Eduard Bellemare, he got hit during the SEL-playoffs and they developed that jaw-guard since he didn't like those that players normally use.

Here's the hit btw:

Wow that puck was gone for a decent amount of time.

Have not seen anything like the guard he is wearing, wonder if it improves breathing or anything and that is why he prefers it.

Pat Lafontaine used something similar in the 90's after he broke his jaw. Search images on google with pat lafontaine broken jaw and you will find pics.

That's Rick Tocchet in the 92 playoffs.

There's a better picture somewhere in color, but that still gives you the visual.

It's just to minimize the risk of damaging it again. He has had to wear the "normal" jaw-protector before but they weren't happy with the protection it provided then, so this time around Skellefteć produced one with the help of a local company. Don't know his current status but two weeks ago his gf said that the jaw still "jumped" every time he swallowed so one can imagine why they want to be extra careful.

It looks more protective than the usual plastic crap.

It looks like something a downhill ski'er would use.
He can't see what's happening in his feet.
That's not a mask that a highly skilled player would use.

Do you think colored plastic is more protective than bright?

You can see foam under the plastic.

You can?
Supposedly if he had foam in there, how do you suppose it would help if he get's his broken jaw rattled?
I don't see any benefit's with that mask.

Yeah, that little grey area just below his mouth. Looks like the foam.

At least I assume that's foam. I've seen a helmet similar to that, that was all grey foam like an old go kart helmet.

If you got smoked it wouldn't make a difference, but I imagine in the little bumps it does.

I guess it doesn't obstruct vision as much as normal jaw protectors. Looks much "fitter".

Hey, I remember those :-) a lot us kids used them in the early eighties here in Europe, sometimes in combination with a visor. Can't find a picture of it right now.
