0864418 - The Ice Hockey Experience

  1. 1. There are five players typically divided into three forwards and two defensemen. The forward positions consist of a centre and two wingers: a left wing and a right wing. Forwards often play together as units or lines, with the same three forwards always playing together. The defensemen usually stay together as a pair, but may change less frequently than the forwards. A substitution of an entire unit at once is called a line change. The point of each line is to score as many goals in the net. However, there is a six position, called the goal tender who will try to stop the puck from going into the net.
  2. 2. Offside: A player may not skate into his offensive zone ahead of the puck. If that happens, a whistle is blown, and a face-off is held just outside the zone where the breach-offside- occurred. Icing: Icing is called when a player behind the red line in his end of the rink shoots a puck past the goal line in his offensive zone when both teams are playing at even strength. Play is stopped when an opponent other than the goalie touches the puck. Two-Line Pass: An offside pass is also called a two-line pass. A defenseman with the puck in front of his own net, for example, cannot pass it to a teammate beyond the red line at center ice because it would have to go over two lines, first the blue and then the red, to get there. Tripping: Using a stick, arm, or leg to cause an opponent to trip or fall is illegal in the game. Hooking: If a player impedes the progress of another by quot;hookingquot; him with his stick and keeping him from making a play, then he is called for hooking. Cross Checking: If a player picks their stick up off of the ice and holds it in two hands to check an opponent (using the shaft of the stick), they may be called for cross checking. Holding: Using your hands on an opponent or the opponent's equipment to impede their progress is not permitted. Boarding: The officials whistle for this infraction when a player hits an opponent who is not aware of the impending contact and therefore cannot defend himself from behind. Charging: This penalty occurs when a player takes more than three strides before deliberately checking an opponent. High Sticking: Any contact made by a stick on an opponent above the shoulders is not allowed, and a minor penalty will be assessed.

  5. 5. In order for teamwork to succeed one must be a team player. A team player is defined as a person who can function effectively as part of a group of individuals, sharing information and striving towards a common goal. In the case of hockey that would include one to be able to pass the puck to another player as much as one would try to score a goal on the opposing team. The team should also work together to come up with plays that would better help each individual out to reach their common goal. Important traits that each member of the team should have, to help score goals, include listening, communicating, helping, sharing, and participation.
