The attitude changed as soon as the cut wound killed the player

Adam Johnson’s death was immediately seen in a good way in the Providence Bruins match.

In the early season, Fabian Lysell did not use a neck protector, but after Johnson’s death, the device was found around the Swede’s neck. PDO

Former NHL player Adam Johnson29, died on Saturday in Britain during an EIHL league match when a skate made a fatal wound in the man’s neck.

After the tragedy, a few players of the AHL club Providence Bruins, such as John Farinacci and Fabian Lysellwore a neck brace in a match against Springfield.

The hockey reporter of The Athletic reported on the matter Scott Wheeler messaging service on X (formerly Twitter).

– It would be in the interest of players and leagues to make the use of neck protectors mandatory. They are not very disturbing these days, Wheeler wrote on the side of his video clip.

Professional hockey players rarely wear neck protection, even though it could prevent tragedies like Johnson’s and other dangerous situations.
