a little guide to hockey

  1. 1. much canadian get ready to be educated people such ice
  2. 2. WHAT IS HOCKEY??? Hockey is sport in which two teams play against each other by trying to maneuver a puck into the opponent's goal using a hockey stick. this is a puck this is a hockey goal this is a hockey stick it can be played on a field too but we’re not gonna talk about that today • there are 6 members on each team (including the goalie) playing at the same time • it started getting popular in the 19th century • there is usually 20 players per team (18 skaters and 2 goalkeepers)
  3. 3. goalies this is what a hockey rink looks like also uniform since we’re talking about ice hockey, players have to wear skate (cause you know they’re playing on ice) this is what a hockey skate looks like
  4. 4. There are lots of rules in ice hockey but let’s talk about penalties for most penalties, the offending player is sent to the “penalty box" and his team has to play without him for a short amount of time. a penalty can last up to ten minutes (depending on what the player did) and they can even be ejected (from the game or multiple games)!!! Minor penalties (2 minutes on bench) include stuff such as: •Taking the puck in your hand (if you’re a skater) •High-sticking •Illegal equipment •Leaving penalty bench too early •Leaving the crease (goalkeeper)) •Roughing •Throwing stick •Abuse of officials •Delay of game •Throwing objects onto ice •Too many men on the ice •Unsportsmanlike conduct look at that box Major penalties: • • • • • • • • • • • • • Charging Fighting Head-butting Illegal Check to the Head Banging boards with stick in protest of an official’s ruling Continuing or attempting to continue a fight Deliberately breaking stick or refusing to surrender stick for measurement Deliberately throwing any equipment (including stick) out of playing area Fighting off the playing surface (or with another player who is off the playing surface) Knocking or shooting puck out of reach of an official Leaving bench to speak to official Use of profane or abusive language Verbal abuse of an official this is high-sticking
  5. 5. Fights hockey players fight a lot and the rules about fighting are very complex and blurry • • • • • • Rules state that at the initiation of a fight, both players must drop their sticks (so that they won’t use them as eapons) Players must also "drop" or shake off their gloves because the hard leather and plastic of hockey gloves would increase the effect of landed blows. Players must also heed a referee warning to end a fight once the opponents have been separated. Failure to adhere to any of these rules results in an immediate game misconduct penalty and the possibility of fines and suspension from future games. In many leagues, linesmen will permit a fight between two players to run its course until one or both players end up on the ice. Linesmen will actively try to break up fights that are one-sided, where one player gains an advantage, where more than two participants are involved, or in situations involving multiple fights. some people even say that hockey without fighting isn’t real hockey but a lot of players get very badly injured and some of them suffer for years because of concussions and whatnot so it’s a big debate in the hockey community. the first one to end up on the ice is usually ‘’considered’’ the loser of the fight some players are even brought into teams not for their playing skills but their fighting skills ((i know)). there are tons of stories about players getting paid to beat up other guys. it’s messy.
  6. 6. Calibers and qualifications the most prestigious and famous league is without doubt the NHL (national hockey league) with both canadian and american teams other leagues include the american hockey league which includes three canadian leagues norway, the uk, czech republic, finland, australia, switzerland, germany, sweden, slovakia and ukraine also have their own leagues Canadian age qualifications there are lots of other leagues with multiple countries involved NHL level Senior (no age limit) Junior (21 years and under) Junior players take part of an annual event called the Draft where NHL teams recruit new players. (((this sounds like the hunger games))) ((they’re slightly similar))) ((see next slide)) Midget (18 years and under) Bantam (15 and under) Peewee (13 and under) Atom (11 and under) Novice (9 and under) Initiation (7 and under)
  7. 7. The NHL Entry Draft is an annual meeting in which every franchise of the National Hockey League (NHL) systematically select the rights available amateur players who meet draft eligibility requirements (North American players 18–20 years old and Europeans of all ages entering league for the first time) • • • • • It’s held once every year, generally within two to three months after the conclusion of the previous season. During the draft, teams take turns selecting amateur players from junior, collegiate, or European leagues. The selection order in the Entry Draft is determined by a combination of lottery, regular season standing, and playoff results. At the conclusion of the regular season, the teams not qualifying for the playoffs are entered in a weighted lottery to determine the initial draft picks in the first round. The remaining order is determined by the Stanley Cup playoff results. Whichever team wins the Stanley Cup is awarded the 30th and last pick, while the runner-up is given the 29th pick. The teams eliminated in the conference finals are awarded the 28th and 27th picks, with the 28th pick going to the team with the better regular season record. Remaining division winners are then sorted by points, then the rest of the field are ranked next, filling in the 26th through 15th picks. In both cases, better records result in later picks the event is televised and also, a very big deal it’s both where dreams go to die and where dreams come true this whole thing is very confusing i’m sorry if u didn’t understand
  8. 8. Divisions Western • • The NHL teams are divided in two conferences based on were the teams are located (Western and Eastern) Each conference is also divided in two divisons. here is a map to help you understand Pacific Central Eastern Atlantic Metropolitain
  9. 9. Playoffs (the playoffs are basically the most important part of hockey) to make the nhl playoffs you have to be the top team in your division or in the top 5 teams in your conference besides the division champions. 8 teams are taken from each conference. • • • • • • • it’s kind of complicated hockey fans take it very seriously there’s a lot of bets and riots and stuff players like to grow what they call the ‘’playoff beard’’ (they stop shaving at the beginning of the playoffs and don’t shave until their team is eliminated) the playoff beard is a very serious tradition mullets and mustaches are also sometimes accepted fans are also invited to participate (males obviously) wow beard
  10. 10. • • • • • • • • THE STANLEY CUP most important trophy in the world of hockey basically like hockey’s super bowl the cup is that big shiny thing in the picture A new Stanley Cup is not made each year; winners keep it until a new champion is crowned. It has the names of all of the winning players, coaches, management, and club staff engraved on its chalice. Initially, a new band added each year caused the trophy to grow in size, but in 1958 the modern one-piece Cup was designed with a five-band barrel which could contain 13 winning teams per band. To prevent the Stanley Cup from growing, when the bottom band is full, the oldest band is removed and preserved in the Hockey Hall of Fame, and a new blank band added to the bottom. One of the the most important tradition dictates that the winning team drink champagne from the top bowl after their victory. Each member of the Cup-winning team is allowed personal possession of the Cup for a day. Most players bring it back to their hometown. Common activites include visits in hospitals and military camps. Some players drink in it. Some put their babies in it. They can do pretty much whatever they want as long as they don’t break it. playoff beards
  11. 11. HOCKEY FANS In 2011, fans of the Vancouver Canucks took it to streets after their team’s loss in the Stanley Cup finals. They burned cars, destroyed windows and buildings, it was basically a mess. It was a riot. Because of hockey. Similar things have happened with other cities and other teams. • hockey fans are known for being very intense • stabbings have occured. stabbings. • the rivalries between teams can get really bad. such as fans fighting in the arena and stuff. • aren’t sports fun??? • many hockey fans support another city’s team for multiple reasons. (for example, no one in the current chicago team is actually from chicago or even from illinois so fans might go for a team with more chicagoans players.)
