The Instigator |Episode 40
Is it Time for Full-Cages?
With the recent injury that left Johnny Boychuk with 90 stitches to his face, I ask the question. Is it time for the NHL to make full masks mandatory for all players. We never thought helmets would be required, We never thought visors would be required? But they are….. Is it time to take it a step further?
Brad Burud the owner/editor of the Inside Edge Hockey News. I am a huge fan of hockey, from youth hockey, to junior hockey, and of course professional hockey. I have played, coached, worked as statistician, and watched hockey all of my life. Hockey is not just a game, it is a lifestyle and family. The game of hockey is great! It can bring you nights of great enjoyment. It also brings nights where you feel like your team will never win. I am proud to be a journalist for the greatest game in the world. I have a degree in Business Administration, Psychology from Minot State University. I also have a Hockey General Manager and Scouting, and Sports Communications/Journalism degree from Sports Management Worldwide. I am also a member of the Sports Executives Association. Most of all I am a fan. Hockey is a huge part of my life and my families life.
