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.

Should soccer players wear helmets?

If you mean helmets, as in American football helmets, the answer is no. This is because they would simply be too heavy! American footballers can wear them because the game is stop/start and one player doesnt play a full game because they have attacking/defending teams. If you mean a scrum-cap, then yes rugby players probably should, if they play in the scrum, it will stop their ears from becoming deformed, but many players outside of the scrum wear them too.

NHL players started wearing helmets as soon as the the 1928-29 season when Boston Bruins' player George Owen wore one. However, they carried a negative stigma that they did not begin to shed until after Bill Masterson died after suffering severe brain trauma in 1968.
