I remember seeing a hockey shirt with back bracing in it online but I can't remember where. Does anyone know about this shirt?

The reason I'm asking is that we have a guy on our team who refuses to wear his back brace because he took some pretty harsh ribbing about "wearing a girdle." Unfortunately, he'll play a game and then miss the next two because of his back.

I seem to remember one of the selling points of the shirt being the fact that the bracing was hidden in the shirt. I think it could be a solution for him but for the life of me I can't remember the details about it.

Thanks in advance.
I'll use medical terms here. I believe the "beans" go in the bulges on the sides, and the "frank" is positioned either upwards or downwards.

Special thanks to Drewhunz for providing me with a top notch quote for my signature.

My wifes uncle was actually trying to break into the NHL with a new design for these. It was a very similar design to what Equestrian and supercross riders where under their gear......last I heard Darcy Tucker was testing it out but that was during the 03/04 season
