some NHL players started to wear them in 2009 so it's likely in 2009
I did some research after getting a concussion and found that the m11 (designed by mark messier) is different (and better, apparently) in how it distributes force around the head. It is a one piece helmet, as opposed to most hockey helmets which are two pieces. The padding on the inside is also different, and I find it to be more comfortable. The only problem I have is it's a pain to change the size of the helmet. The Harvard hockey team recently switched to the m11, so if the helmet is good enough to protect their brains, it's good enough to protect mine
The Cascade M11 hockey helmet is considered to offer the best protection against concussions and other head injuries. It was designed by Mark Messier who became concerned about the growing concussion problem in the NHL and hockey in general.
No it's the Reebok 11k helmet
it is not the best looking helmet, but is comfy and durable.
Some players on the Ducks....
most face masks fit the helmet, preferably the same size. e.g. if you have medium helmet then get a medium mask
Swedish Ice Hockey champion, Sven Tumba invented the first hockey helmet, called the SPAPS-helmet
There are many advantages to having a helmet on when playing hockey. Often in hockey people will "check" other people by slamming them into a wall and a helmet protects players from injuries.
NO hockey helmets are much better. Ski helmets are not that good but do the job. Hockey helmet will protect you much more in short range falls and long range falls the any ski helmet.
Theres no best hockey helmet. Some of the better brands are Itech, RBK, Bauer.

When you play hockey mostly required equipment is a cage helmet (street or roller hockey) or just a visor helmet for ice hockey (you can also have a cage helmet for ice) Every type of hockey you should have shin guards Have to have hockey gloves Have to have hockey stick obviously Some people recommend having a mouth guard. Some places make you have elbow pads while some don't.

They can protect your head from a hockey puck traveling in excess of 60 mph or the uncotrolled weilding of a hockey stick.

The places to purchase a hockey helmet bag are many and varied. The best place to start would be Amazon. If you are on a tight budget, a good option to try would be eBay.
I think the first helmet used in hockey was by a goalie named Jacques Plante. He had to use a mask/helmet for the first time in 1959 because of a broken nose, so then it started becoming more popular in the early 1960's for goalies, before any skater wore a a helmet.
