5 What Is Ice Hockey? A team sport played on ice. It is a fast paced and physical sport Ice hockey is most popular in Canada, the northern United States, Scandinavia and Russia The indoor artificial ice rinks have become very popular at the amateur level in major metropolitan areas such as cities that host a National Hockey League (NHL) or other professional-league teams

6 Rules And Equipment Is played on a rectangular rink with curved corners whose length may vary from 184 to 200 ft and its width from 85 to 98 ft Six players: a goalie, a center, two defensemen, and two forwards The players are on ice skates The rink is surrounded on all sides by walls 3 1/2 to 4 ft high The goal mouths are 4 ft high and 6 ft wide and are set 10 ft out from each end of the rink, which is divided by colored lines in the ice into three zones (attacking, neutral, and defending) that are each 60 ft long A puck, made out of composite material, 1 in. thick and 3 in. in diameter, and frozen to reduce resiliency, is the object used in play The weight, size, and shape of the sticks used to hit the puck are standardized

7 Rules And Equipment After a face-off (the dropping of the puck between two opposing players by an official), the team in possession of the puck seeks to maneuver it past the other team and into its net Each goal counts one point The game is divided into three 20-min periods; overtime periods in case of ties are used in certain professional games In this fast and body-bruising sport, players use heavy protective equipment A player detected by the referee in roughing, tripping, high-sticking, or other violations must spend two minutes (a minor penalty) or more (major penalties) off the ice in the penalty box, and his team must continue play shorthanded Linesmen, goal judges, a timekeeper, and a scorer also officiate
