The head of the NHL Players Association is urging players to wear more compression pants and keep chin clips at home.
The NHLPA is calling for players to keep chin straps on at all times, and also says they should wear the chin clip on a day-to-day basis.
Players who want to reduce the chances of having a chin injury should wear compression pants as often as possible, the union says.
Players should also stay away from high-stress situations like lifting weights or lifting weights, playing on the ice or on the bench.
Players should also wear chin straps at home on a daily basis.
“The chin strap is the single most effective and efficient way to prevent a neck injury and should be worn every day.
The helmet should be removed and the head should be positioned on the chest to prevent neck compression,” NHLPA president John P. Bylsma said in a statement.”
There are several types of compression garments available, which are suitable for different types of injuries, including compression garments for neck compression and neck compression for shoulder and chest injuries.”
The NHL Players Union also wants to educate players about how to keep their neck and neck muscles relaxed.
The union says it also recommends wearing compression clothing at least six to 12 hours a day.
The association says players should be aware of the importance of keeping their neck, neck, shoulder and head in a neutral position and also of the possibility of a neck, head or shoulder injury if they wear compression clothing.
“It is important to understand that when wearing compression garments, the risk of neck or neck-related injuries is increased by the compression garments,” Byl, the NHLPA’s executive director, said in the statement.
“Players should be educated on the benefits and risks of wearing compression gear and wear compression garments on a regular basis.”
