The Instigator |Episode 40

Is it Time for Full-Cages?

Listen to “The Instigator – Episode 40 – Is it Time for Full-Cages?” on Spreaker.

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?
