: does tazer wear a mouthguard?

He does! As far as I’ve seen him, he’s always on the bench popping it out of his mouth and popping it back in again.

: hey so um, question. since you know a lot about kaner and his mouthguards. i was wondering about the origin of the chipped teeth photo? the one where it looks like he's in a hotel room, smiling dumbly at the camera. i was always curious about where it came from exacty.

To be honest with you, anon, I have no clue where the image originally came from. I wish I did! But after some Google snooping and some backwards image searching, I just keep finding the picture on tumblrs and weird hockey forums.

If anyone knows, feel free to let me know!
