Visor (ice hockey)
A visor or shield in ice hockey is a device attached to the front of a hockey helmet to reduce potential of injury to the face. They may cover the upper half of the face or the full face. There is currently a great debate about whether NHL players should be forced to wear visors. A series of eye injuries, most notably that to Bryan Berard, have lead to a call from many to enforce their wearing. Currently a minority of players wear visors, and they are mandated in many other leagues around the world.
