maybe not. I had something similar a few years ago. long story short I got nailed with a clearing attempt while scorekeeping a high level men's league game. fortunately it was under the hairline and nowhere near the eye. I had 1 internal stitch and 9 external stitches. I was headed to Canada a few days later for a tournament with my team. it wasn't the most comfortable thing but but I was able to get my helmet on with no problems and play the whole tourney. clearly Hall's injury is a lot worse (and a LOT scarier) but he might be able to play in a few days with a full cage if the swelling goes down.

Hall had to get something like 30 stitches (might be more)

Thats nice. I dont really see a full cage helping him out too much. He wears a visor already, and most of the stiches will be under where the actual helmet sits. It'll be uncomfortable to say the least..

My sister in law who is a nurse in the ER said "That is some quality stitch work right there, no doubt they did that at a hospital and not a quick stitch in the locker room." she doesn't think the scare will be bad at all maybe the middle part will be noticable but only miminal.

I want to say they said a plastic surgeon was in the house and performed the stitches?

the full cage would just be a safety precaution in case something got up under the visor where his eye is all black and blue.
