Ear pieces

Last weekend the issue of ear pieces came up at the ACHA D2 showcase. Remember that ear pieces are required in the ACHA. If you do remove them do not be caught off gaurd. All HECC approved helmets require an ear piece and the ACHA requires HECC approved helmets. Here is a correspondence from Mark Granger, Counsel for HECC.

"Under current HECC procedures in order to be HECC Certified a helmet must comply with a standard that requires ear protection to be in place.

The ACHA requires that all helmets, actually all equipment, not be modified from it's original factory settings.

Good luck the rest of the season.

It would be a real BLANK move if anyone called a team for ear guards. Can we all agree that we will let this one slide.

it may not be an issue, until someone is injured then parents will be screaming because someone allowed this to happen

It's a rule that the refs are supposed to enforce. It is not like an illegal stick and the other team calls it. So just be prepared if the ref does do such a thing.

If a player gets an ear cut off and the ref doesn't call it his butt is on the line for allowing it in the first place.

Yes parents. The majority of fans at some schools are parents.
