Adam Johnson's tragic passing shook the world of hockey. The dangers of hockey struck the American forward and former NHLer.

LEAGUES ALL-AROUND THE WORLD MAKING CHANGES: WHL FOLLOWS THE TENDENCY

Great Britain's Hockey Association made neck guards a mandatory piece of equipment on Sunday; NHL organizations have made strong recommendations to their affiliates, but now the WHL has followed the footsteps and made a significant announcement in that regard just moments ago:

''The WHL announced today the adoption of mandatory neck guard protection for all players, effective Friday, November 3.''
