Example text

Asplund et al. found that wearing facemasks significantly reduced the occurrence of facial, ocular, and dental injuries in hockey [14]. Lemaire and Pearsall demonstrated that ice hockey helmets with full-face shields produce lower post-impact peak acceleration (10–100 g) than do helmets alone (100–130 g), consequently concluding that facial protector use may lower the incidence as well as severity of head injuries by decreasing post-impact head acceleration [22]. Reduction of facial injuries by facemasks should not be confused with evidence for the reduction of concussions in ice hockey.

Injuries to the eyelid, eyebrow, eye orbit, and eye globe were virtually eliminated after mandated use of eyewear, with the exception of injuries that occurred when standard eyewear was not being worn [35]. Kriz et al. performed a prospective cohort study involving American female high school field hockey players during two seasons of play immediately before (fall 2009 and fall 2010) and immediately after (fall 2011 and fall 2012) a national mandate for protective eyewear in girls’ field hockey was exercised by the National Federation of High School Associations.
