What is the best way to protect throat against shots?
that recent Alex Burrows throat-shot made me think, what kind of neck protection do you use (if any)? What do you recommend? Does wearing a neck guard make a difference at all when puck hits you hard in the throat?
I play roller only and have never worn any neck protection, but since I face some heavy (slap)shots here and there, I would like to minimize the chances of getting my throat smashed. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
