Oshawa Generals to begin wearing Daredevil cut-esistant kevlar base layer
Oshawa, Ont., – On Wednesday afternoon, the Oshawa Generals Hockey Club welcomed Daredevil Hockey for a player fitting and presentation on the importance of their cut-resistant kevlar base layer clothing. The entire line includes kevlar shirts, pants, and arm sleeves, with built-in protection to cover vulnerable areas such as the wrist, femoral arteries and achilles tendon
In their presentation, Daredevil Hockey outlined the underlying severity of skate lacerations, and how they are ultimately more common than many people believe. They explained that when a cut severe enough can make it to an artery, there can sometimes be only a few minutes to act before things turn into a worst-case scenario.
On the lighter side, Daredevil hockey said wearing their base layers breathes a new level of confidence into players – adding that while not having to worry about exposing themselves in dangerous areas, they can play with a little less stress.
When asked why the Generals’ organization made this decision, Vice President and General Manager Roger Hunt said it was a no-brainer.
“Obviously player safety is paramount in our organization and the OHL,” said Hunt. “This just demonstrates further the Oshawa Generals’ commitment and dedication to our players, and their families – that their well-being is the most important thing.”
In making this decision, the Oshawa Generals continue to send their thoughts and condolences to the family of #47 Adam Johnson and the entire Nottingham Panthers organization.
The Generals will first take the ice wearing the Daredevil cut-resistant base layers during today’s practice and moving forward for the rest of this season. For more information on Daredevil Hockey, you can visit their website by clicking here.
