Adam Johnson's death shook the hockey world in a way that has not been seen before. Immediately following his passing discussions of player safety have taken center stage across hockey circles almost universally and now some players are taking things into their own hands.


Dahlin Becomes First Skater To Wear Neck Guard In NHL Game



Neck guards have never been a hotter topic than they are now. Similarly, the idea of wearing them in NHL games has become more popular than ever and tonight we saw the first player take the plunge, Sabres defenseman Rasmus Dahlin.



Dahlin was seen wearing the new gear tonight as his Sabres took on the Philadelphia Flyers. The game is currently tied during the first intermission at 2 goals a piece. Dahlin is currently on an eight-game point streak. A point tonight would extend it to nine games, putting him in lofty company among Sabres defensemen.
