Ladd feels visors are a player's choice

  • Print

With the serious eye injury to Philadelphia defenceman Chris Pronger on Monday, and not long after the puck in the face suffered by Jets captain Andrew Ladd, the matter of visors is again a discussion topic in the NHL.

"I think it's the player's choice, but I'd like to see players wear them," Jets coach Claude Noel said.

Ladd sounded like he wouldn't care to see the NHL mandate the eyewear.

"Ultimately, it's the player's choice... it's your decision, your body and your choice."

Ladd's wife has been suggesting for some time that he always wear a visor.

"I'll make the decision when it's time, when I'm able to take it off," he said. "She (his wife) has an opinion, but at the end of the day I think it's my choice and she knows it's whatever I feel comfortable with and she'll support me.

"Definitely, there's a little birdie in my ear, for sure."
