03:02 PM ET 06.03 | The NHL and NHL Players Association may be ready to finally institute mandatory visors. Marc Staal's eye injury on March 5 brought up the debate on mandatory visors again and the league's competition committee will discuss the issue at their meeting on Tuesday. Most young players already wear visors so it would not be a big issue for them and the league would likely grandfather the visor requirement in. That would allow current players to play without a visor if they choose while new players would have to wear the visor, avoiding the wrath of the veteran players who are used to playing without a visor and do not want to be dictated to.
