Petras Sr Takes Puck To The Face

My dad has been playing Tuesday night hockey fairly regularly for the past little while. Some sort of oldtimers league nearby with a bunch of guys he knows. Well, last night he called from the emergency room to say he’d been hit in the face with a puck. He got home finally around 1:30AM, cheek all bruised, black eye, and a small cut. Fortunately nothing worse!

This morning he noted that it’s “time to get a mask.” As someone who’s always worn one, I don’t really see the issue. Guys complain that it obstructs their vision, but for me the bars in the cage just ‘disappear’ when I’m wearing it. Yeah, it’s better I’m sure but the risk just isn’t worth it. Pucks to the legs and slashes to the forearms are bad enough…
