Ice hockey HOCKEY PLAYERS EQUIPMENT complete set of protective gear and athletes clothing. Hockey equipment performs two main functions: protection from injuries and identification of belonging to a particular team. Hockey equipment is constantly evolving. In the last century, additional elements were added to the protective equipment (for example, a helmet). Modern hockey players will never go on the ice without head protection. However, not so long ago, the helmet was considered a sign of cowardice and an unnecessary accessory. It wasnt until 1968 that the National Hockey League required goalies to use head protection. Unfortunately, the main catalyst for this decision was the fatal case of Bill Masterson. Today, mandatory elements of protection are regulated by the International Ice Hockey Federation. For example, all hockey players under the age of 18 (and all women) are required to go on the ice with a grate covering their entire face. Players over the age of 18 can replace this protection with a transparent plastic visor. Head protection has a special priority in hockey, but other parts of the body require no less attention. For example, adult hockey players are recommended to use neck protection (collar). For players under the age of 18, this piece of equipment is mandatory. The guards should be strong and light. This provides a high degree of protection and the necessary level of freedom of movement. Special attention is paid to hockey skates. All athletes are required to play in sports shoes with a safety blade. It should not have sharp ends that can cause a stabbing wound. The back of the blade must be rounded off. In addition, both ends are covered with plastic.
