USAH Neck Guard Policy

The tragic passing of Adam Johnson on Saturday, who was playing for the Nottingham Panthers, has heightened conversations around neck laceration protectors.

USA Hockey continues to recommend a neck laceration protector for all players that covers as much of the neck as possible, along with cut-resistant socks, sleeves or undergarments.

The USA Hockey Safety and Protective Equipment Committee, guided by Dr. Mike Stuart from the Mayo Clinic, USAH chief medical and safety officer, has regularly studied neck laceration protectors and is continuing to work with equipment companies to affect the safest possible environment for all participants.

USAH has a webpage with information on neck laceration protectors and it can be accessed here.  Please know their work on this topic and all matters related to safety are on-going. 


The Cincinnati Swords is proud to partner with Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.  The partnership will bring relevent sports medicine information to our Swords families.  Please see the link below to access the CCHMC sports medicine webpage.
