The Game of Hockey

Written by

Ice Hockey

Ice hockey is a winter sport played on an ice surface, called a rink, which has the shape of a rectangle with curved corners. The object of the game is to score more goals than the opposing team. Goals are scored by shooting a rubber disc, called a puck, into the opposing team's net. Each team has 5 players and 1 goaltender on the ice. The goaltender's main purpose is to stop the puck from entering in the net while the main purpose of the players is to score goals. The 5 players are divided into two groups: forwards and defensemen. There are three forwards and two defensemen. The three forwards are usually called a line or trio while the defensemen are said to be a pair.

Penalties

Penalties

There are a lot of different infractions that can be called during a hockey game. These infractions are called penalties and usually end up with the player going to the penalty box for a finite amount of time. This amount of time depends on the nature of the infraction as well as the league in which you play.

Offside

Written by

Offside

The offside rule is a hard rule to understand when first watching the game of hockey. Basically, this rule stipulates that the puck has to enter the offensive zone (from the blue line to the net) before any player of the attacking team can enter that zone. If a player of the attacking team enters the offensive zone before the puck, all attacking players must be outside the offensive zone before they can re-enter it. An infraction will only be called if an attacking player touches the puck while in the offensive zone. A faceoff will then take place outside the zone, near the blue line.

 

 

This rule helps the defensive team greatly as all they need to do is shoot the puck out of their zone to force all the players from the attacking team to exit the zone in order to avoid a faceoff.
