Helmets
i. All players must wear a protective helmet and the chin strap must always be fastened.  If a player's helmet is dislodged during the course of play, the player can continue to play without the helmet.
ii. From the 1979-80 NHL season all players new to the league had to wear helmets. Prior to that, players occasionally wore head gear if they were returning from injury.
iii. Craig MacTavish was the last of the pre 1979-80 players to go bareheaded, which he did until he retired at the end of the 1996-97 season.
iv. In the A to Z Gallery we have an image titled "Sweden v Streatham 1953" in which a Swedish player is wearing a 'primitive' helmet, one he probably borrowed from a Rugby player.
