Bertuzzi playing by the rules ~ Wearing a Visor


Todd Bertuzzi does not wear a visor when playing for NHL Vancouver Canucks, and i don’t think he was wearing one in the game Italy, yet here he is wearing a visor versus Germany (great pic Robert Scales).

If i recall correctly, there is (an IIFC?) rule in which all players born after a certain age must wear a visor and perhaps Bertuzzi just found out about this rule?
