The basics of hockey are simple, that you skate, you pass the puck to your teammates, you shoot and you score.
Hockey players move on the ice rink with ice skates, which have a double-edged blade at the bottom, which makes the winding more sharp and the acceleration more easy.
Bodychecking is used to fight a puck in the opponent’s hand. By law, Bodychecking is allowed to use the shoulders or hips, but not elbows or sticks, and not from the back.
Hockey uses a hard rubber called puck, one inch thick, three inches in diameter. This puck has a rounded edge with two flat top and bottom sides.
The stick is used to kick the puck on the golf course, as well as to pass the puck on the ice. The more precisely the puck is passed to the teammate, the higher the chance of kicking it into the goal.
There are many ways to kick a puck, but the main goal is to hit it on goal to score. There is no faster way to score, than quick shots called slapshots, with speeds usually up to more than 150 kilometers per hour.
The shot named wrist shot is the most accurate. The players often puck lumps on the ice, before using his wrist to hit it hard. A snap shot is like a wrist shot, but at a shorter distance. At the snap shot. the players hit the puck very fast, with just a simple flap of the wrist, which surprised the goalkeeper.
The goal of hockey is simple. It is to score more goals than the opposing team. Players are not allowed to kick a puck on the golf course or intentionally use any part of their body to direct it to the goal.
Within the allotted time, each team has five players, including three forwards, two defenders and one goalie.
