Players bumping helmets after wins and with the goalies after a block have been traditions for as long as hockey has been around. It is their way for showing support and congratulating each other.

Helmets were worn by most NFL players when the league started in 1920, however they were not made mandatory until 1943. The NCAA did not require players to wear helmets until 1939.

Obviously, helmets are worn for protection as hockey is a very dangerous game to play. Hockey is a body contact sport, along with flying pucks, raised sticks, sharp skate blades, etc. When the first helmets were made and worn I have no idea at this time. Maybe someone reading this will know more information.
