Doctor Endorses Tuff-n-Lite Hockey Protective Gear
I think the Tuff-n- Lite Hockey skate socks and wrists guards are a great product. As an emergency physician who has also been involved in hockey all my life as a player and coach, I have seen and treated a number of serious lacerations over the years, some from hockey skates. The lower leg and forearm/wrist area have a number of important structures including tendons and blood vessels. Tendon lacerations are devastating injuries. The patient requires surgery, casting for a number of weeks followed by long periods of rehabilitation. Some patients never return to full function despite the best treatment. For the small price of the Tuff-n- Lite Hockey skate socks and wrist guards, hockey players can protect their wrists and lower legs from serious lacerations, including tendon lacerations. I fully endorse the Tuff-n-Lite Hockey skate socks and wrists guards.

Paramedic Thanks Tuff-n-Lite Hockey
I would like to thank David and his partners for coming up with such a brilliant idea. I have worked for over 20 years as a paramedic most of them in the Arenas taking care of hockey injuries due to lack of proper equipment used by the players. Just last month we had a 14 year old who cut the tendon on his lower leg because he felt it made him faster not to use the proper socks, wear shorter shin pads and cut the top off of his skate boot. If only he wore the socks by tuff n lite hockey then he would not have had to sit out the playoffs due to the 10 stitches he incurred that night. I showed him the socks that David gave to him and had him try them in a spring practice, boy was he impressed with the comfort, the feel and the over all protection. He will not play without them now.
Three Time Gold Medalist Caroline Ouellette Skates In Tuff-n-Lite
"I deeply believe in the importance of what Tuff-n-Lite Hockey is striving to accomplish. In a dynamic sport in which players are prone to injuries, it is comforting to have equipment that will largely diminish the risk of serious skate cut injuries. As a player who has suffered from two skate cuts, requiring more than 15 stitches on my leg and my arm, I am sensitive to the need to protect my body and to encourage others to do so as well. When I was first introduced to Tuff-n-Lite Hockey, I was excited about the goal of the product but also curious to try it out and see if it was comfortable and effective. After using Tuff-n-Lite Hockey, I can honestly say that it is a great product that is comfortable and gives me peace of mind, because of the important protection it provides me from dangerous skate cuts. The combination of the two is why I will continue to use and to protect myself with Tuff-n-Lite Hockey in the future."
