Hockey Helmet Certification:

A recent rumor has been circulating that some player helmets are "expired" and players can receive a penalty for an expired helmet.  Please note that this is untrue.  The lifespan of a hockey helmet is not easy to determine.  Many factors including the amount and type of use, care and maintenance, storage, determine a hockey helmet's life-span.  Consumers should exercise good judgement as to the suitability of a hockey helmet for play.  Helmets that are cracked, have loose fitting or missing liner pieces, or that have been subjected to a severe blow should be replaced.

For more information please refer to a letter received from CSA.
