The times are changing.

It wasn't very many seasons ago that the Edmonton Oilers didn't have a single player wearing a visor.

This season, the Oilers have 10 players on their opening day 23-man roster who are choosing to wear eye protection.

Rookies Patrick Thoresen, Jan Hejda, Ladislav Smid and Alexei Mikhnov are wearing visors.

In addition, veterans Marc-Andre Bergeron, Shawn Horcoff, Petr Sykora, Ales Hemsky, Daniel Tjarnqvist and Joffrey Lupul have shields on.
