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.
Mark S. Granger
Counsel for HECC"
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.

Our intent is to build up and promote college club hockey and its teams. We need to work together and support each other to make this happen. We already have enough critics of club hockey. Let's do our best to keep things amiable on this forum, as not to give them any ammunition.
Best of luck to ALL teams!
