You mean outside of every player from 4-18 in the country that's the largest provider of NHL players, there are some leagues that don't require them?

Well seeing as "pretty much every league" excludes adults, professionals, collegians and non-Canadians... it's not pretty much every league, is it?

when i was playing jr.a and jr.b in my playing days neckgaurds were not mandatory. this was 4-6 years ago, i'd be surprised to find out if they implemented mandatory neck guards in the last 4 years.

to add to that i felt a neckgaurd raised my body temperature alot higher, causing me to sweat and feel my fatigue, when cool air went down my neck it was a relief almost as good as getting a swish of water at the bench.

I remember pouring water on myself to cool myself down. When the water went down my neck it was a relief.

Neck guards will become mandatory for all Ontario junior hockey officials starting next month, the Ontario Hockey Association ruled last night.

Neck guards have been mandatory for players since the start of the 2008-2009 season

In the case of the Ontario Hockey League, they have declared all players must wear neck protection as of March 10, a dictum already in place in Quebec junior hockey.

so the Q and O uses neck guards? man that's a contrast when i was hitting juniors taking off the neckguard was one of the most comforting things to do, that and taking the cage off and putting on the visor , maybe it's a mental thing but i felt comfortably with body temperature levels, along with easier breathing. i hated a wet neckguard around my neck felt like a dog collar.

having quitting hockey it's a non issue for me now, but if i showed up to a beer league game and they said i would have to put on a neck guard i would be pissed, that would never happen though beer league anything goes really, if the same thing happened to nhl players i would imagine they would have a negative reaction to it, but they're getting paid for it they'd probably suck it up.

At the very least, I recommend neck guards for adults and think they should be mandatory for kids. I was caught in the throat with a stick from a guy clearing a puck with his backhand. Enough force to lift me up - the guy even gasped, I'm sure he thought he'd crushed my adam's apple. But my neck guard spread the force of the hit and I hardly felt it. I can thank a guy in a sporting goods store who recommended a neck guard because he'd had his neck stepped on by a skate and thought his neck guard saved his life.

I don't see why it should be mandatory. Players have the choice to wear one or not. You have to know he risks of not wearing one. Just my .02

Nah, just the numerous lower and developmental leagues that supply those leagues with talent. I'm sure the world is top heavy in leagues though: The number of professionals, and collegians surely outnumbers that which supplies it. That only makes sense, right?
