Since the passing of Adam Johnson, many NHLers have begun to experiment with wearing a neck guard including many talented players like Rasmus Dahlin, Erik Karlsson, and TJ Oshie.

With this on its way to becoming the new norm in the NHL, many more players are looking towards protecting themselves.

After over 1100 NHL games and at 35 years old, this is the first time Giroux will be wearing a neck guard. In the past, neck guards were uncomfortable to wear but with the advancements in technology, players are now more open to wearing these guards.

With Giroux embracing a neck guard, hopefully, more young players follow his lead and protect themselves in order to avoid a future tragedy.
