Adam Johnson death causes huge turnaround

Examples such as TJ Oshie, Anze Kopitar, Jayden Struble, Tage Thompson, etc. The death caused many fans to try and urge leagues to mandate neck protection. Rightfully so, with a tragedy like this, it should be a no brainer. Hopefully more leagues begin to mandate neck protection and not only youth leagues. It's time to protect our players.
