I don't wear one since I wear a cage and play in a non-checking league, but if you want a really good one, go to your dentist. It may cost more, but it'll be better.

If you want to pay like $75+ for a mouthguard go to your dentist. Otherwise just get a $20 Shock Doctor and mold it or the custom Reebok is like $30-$40 though it's a bit of a pain to set up. Anything is better than nothing but you don't need a super expensive one.

I got the 20$ or so shock doctor one...works well enough for the occasional elbow to the chin. Jaw feels lil sore after but the teeth dont =].

Also Id recommend one for EVERYONE even cage users...really don't understand how people wouldn't use one hittin the ice or any quick hit can cause your lower jaw to hit the upper but to each their own....

not sure i quite understand how a mouthguard can improve performance?

the only thing i can think of is it keeps your mouth open so that you can breathe easier

Yeah, the UA mouthguard is custom made from a dentist. The Reebok custom one is a pain in the butt, fyi.

As for a mouthpiece increasing performance.... ?

yeah, performance enhancing mouthguards are along the same line as those phiten energy focus necklaces*.

*now with MAGNETS!


Seriously, I just use a shockdoctor pro. It's a decently nice boil and bite. Boiled and bit twice, it was still a little off after the first time.

Is the shockdoctor pro slimmer? In that you can actually talk when you have it in?

I'd go with a custom made guard from your dentist or custom guards

Definately go custom. I use pro-tekt mouthguard. http://www.protektmouthguards.com/

It will likely be cheaper in the long run. I have played 2 seasons with my current mouth guard. When I need to replace it, it is at a reduced cost because they keep your molds.

I haven't compared in ages. I can't really talk with it in all that well, but I can shout alright. I'm not going to carry on a philosophical conversation, but shouting for the puck or yelling 'one on' is certainly doable.

If talking is that important to you, go custom. But the SD one I have gives me plenty of protection and cost $10, and is on year 2, though about ready to die.

you should try Gladiator you can't miss with a $50 custom mouthguard. Gladiator mouthguards is the official guard of ECAC and Hockey East. They were a sponsor at the Frozen Fenway college game.

..... I play more confidently knowing I have quality protective gear, not cheap stuff. Dunno about anyone else.

$5 BnB, works fine. Trimmed a little in the back and I can breathe well and talk semi-well.
