The need for a neck guard is best illustrated by highly known cases of Clint Malarchuk of Buffalo Sabres in 1989 and Richard Zednik of Florida Panthers in 2008. In both of these cases, players were caught up in a fast moving situation when getting struck by other players hockey skate in the neck area. Only because of the medical staff nearby and a stroke of luck, but after losing a lot of blood, both players survived. These are just two of many thousand neck injuries suffered by hockey players.
