10.1.3.2 Non-form fitting face shields such as hockey style full face shields, half face shields or face cages are strictly prohibited.

Continuing with optional protective equipment, today's rule explains what type of face protection is prohibited. Form-fitting face protection is designed to not interfere with any other players of a contact sport. Hockey style face shields and cages may pose a safety threat to other skaters. Granted, skaters are not to be hitting each other in or with the head, but the rules have still deemed these types of face protection to be not allowed.
