The NHL players who wear formal corsetes in game attire have been the subject of much debate, with some suggesting that they should be exempt from wearing the corsetry, others saying they shouldn’t.
The corset was created in the 1930s by an American designer named Robert C. Corman, and is often worn by women of the upper classes.
Players of the NHL, including Sidney Crosby and Jonathan Toews, have worn corsettes during the 2014-15 season.
Crosby wore one for his home opener against the Dallas Stars on April 15.
“I’m glad that I’m not a part of it, I’m glad they’re not putting that on,” Crosby said.
“They have to be careful with it.
I don’t like the corset.
I would love to see something more.”
Crosby said he was “pretty much” OK with wearing the traditional corset as long as he didn’t wear it during his regular-season games.
“It’s just about the way they’re wearing it.
The only thing I’m going to do is if I’m playing the game, if I have to, I’ll do what I want to do,” Crosby told reporters.
Crosby also said he’s “disappointed” that he’s been fined for wearing the Corman corset during games.
He said he will appeal the fine, but that he’ll keep wearing it until the league agrees.
“The league and the NHLPA made a statement about it, and it was a little bit disappointing that it wasn’t addressed, but I’m fine with it,” Crosby, who has two goals and three assists during the regular season, said.
Crosby said players shouldn’t have to wear the cored corset when playing in front of their families, which he said would be a good idea.
“You’re supposed to be part of the family, you know?”
Crosby said, laughing.
“It’s a great corset and a great way to wear it.
You don’t need to be the only one wearing it.”
Crossey has been fined $5,000 for wearing a corset for the regular-game season, which was his second-biggest fine for a corseting.
Crosby has three goals and five assists during a three-game point streak.
Corsets were not made compulsory for the NHL season last season, but were a requirement for games in the AHL.
Corsets can be worn during certain periods of the regular seasons and in the playoffs.
Coyotes defenseman Seth Jones said he would wear the Cordon for games that require it.
“We’re just going to play the way we play, and just get through it,” Jones said.
Cory Schneider said he’d wear a cordon in certain situations, but only if he had to.
“If they were telling me to wear a regular corset or corset with a maxi, I’d be fine with that, but they don’t have that,” Schneider said.
“My team is the Arizona Coyotes, so we don’t wear a maxis or corsetts for our games.
I’m just going out and playing my game, and hopefully I’ll get through this.”
