Since when have NHL Hockey Players started wearing black under their eyes like they do in Football?
Am I having amnesia or is this something new? I know that football (American) players wear black grease under their eyes to deflect the sun. Why would hockey players adapt this behavior and when did they start doing it?
I've only ever seen it done for the outdoor games, like the one today in Boston. Probably for the same reason that football players do it.
Indeed; there is significant reflection from the ice when playing outdoors. It is similar to what we call the Albedo effect. Thus the blackness directly under the eyes reduces the impact to eyes.
