Ice Hockey is a team sport played on skates in which two teams of six players compete by using hockey sticks to shoot a puck into the opponent’s goal to score points. Games occur within the confines of an ice rink and the sport is known for its fast-paced play and physical high-contact style.

Teams consist of a goalie (goaltender), two defensemen, a right and left wing, and a center. An ice hockey game is made up of three periods of twenty minutes. Ice hockey is a popular sport in countries known for winter sports with the National Hockey League (NHL) in North America being the strongest league in the world.

What is icing in hockey?

The icing rule in hockey is an infraction that occurs when a player shoots the puck untouched from behind the center red line across the opposing team’s goal line. This rule was created to stop players from simply flipping the puck to the end of the ice as a strategy to slow down the flow of the game. After icing, play is resumed with a faceoff within the defending zone of the team that caused the penalty.

How long is a hockey game?

An average NHL hockey game is roughly two hours with games extending to two and a half hours in the situation of an overtime and a shootout scenario. Hockey games consist of three 20 minute periods with two 17 minute breaks between.

What is offsides in hockey?

Offsides is a penalty called in hockey when an offensive player moves into the attacking zone before the puck has crossed over the blue line of the zone. The player in control of the puck cannot be called for offsides.

Ice Hockey Rink - International
Size comparison drawing of an Ice Hockey Rink compared to the size of a Field Hockey Pitch and basketball court

International Ice Hockey Rinks are the standard iced-playing field for the sport of Ice Hockey and are used for international competitions, such as the Winter Olympics, and for play throughout Europe. Compared to North American Ice Hockey Rinks, International rinks are larger in width by 13.1’ (4 m).

The rink is divided up by the center line, blue lines, and goal lines. Ice Hockey Rinks feature nine faceoff spots: one center faceoff, four in the neutral zone and four in the end zones. Each side features a goal crease in front of the goal.

International ice hockey rinks measure 200.13’ (61 m) in length, 98.42’ (30 m) in width, and have corner radii of 27.88’ (8.5 m). The total area of an International ice hockey rink is 19,000 ft² (1,765 m²). The blue lines are located 29’ (8.83 m) from center and the goal lines are at 13.1’ (4 m) from the side boards. All faceoff circles have a diameter of 29.5’ (9 m) and spot diameter of 2’ (.6 m) except for the center faceoff which is 1’ (.3 m). The end zone faceoffs are centered at 22’ (6.7 m) from the goal lines and the neutral zone faceoffs are 5’ (1.5 m) from the blue lines. The goal creases in front of the goals are 12’ (3.66 m) diameter.

Ice Hockey Goal
Front elevation drawing of an Ice Hockey goal with hockey goalie and dimensions

Ice Hockey Goals are placed on each end of the Ice Hockey Rink and are used for scoring points in a game of Ice Hockey. To score a goal, the entire hockey puck must cross the goal that is being defended by the goalie (goaltender). Ice Hock Goals are constructed of bent tubed steel and a net to catch any made shot.

For professional ice hockey, the opening of the goal is 72” (180 cm) wide, 48” (120 cm) high, and has a depth of 40” (100 cm). This opening is held rigid by a metal tube frame that is roughly 2” (5 cm) in diameter and is enclosed by mesh net with an opening size of 1 5/8” (4.1 cm). The base of the goal is rounded with 18" (45.7 cm) radii and an overall width of 88” (223.5 cm).
