The first shoulder and elbow pads used by NHLers were made of felt and leather. Those gave way to more protective models with hard plastic shells. However, after a spate of facial injuries primarily caused by flying elbows, which Gordie Howe may have had something to do with, the NHL ordered that all pads must have a soft outer covering. “Mr. Hockey” was an offensive power (1,850 points in 1,767 NHL games) who amassed 1,685 career penalty minutes.
