Weise would wear a visor if not for his role | 06/13/2013 2:47 PM
NewsDale Weise said he would wear a visor if he didn't have a fourth-line role, which requires him to fight sometimes.
Impact"If I was playing in a bigger role and playing more minutes, I'd put one on for sure," he said. "In that fourth line role, you're getting targeted by other guys. If you're not playing on the fourth line, then you're not going to have as many opportunities to fight." Weise doesn't want to take his helmet off to fight, which several players who wear visors do because that can be even more dangerous. He thinks that fighting will remain in the game, but it will probably decrease with the new visor rule.
