Obviously, helmets are worn for protection as hockey is a very dangerous game to play. Hockey is a body contact sport, along with flying pucks, raised sticks, sharp skate blades, etc. When the first helmets were made and worn I have no idea at this time. Maybe someone reading this will know more information.
