 Article posted March 9, 2010 at 01:30 PM GMT • comment • Reads 387 Our modern type of hockey actually came from the British. Hockey comes from the french word “hocquet” which means stick. It is believed that the British used a stick to push a snowball across the ice. The British then brought this sport to North America. Hockey has come a long way since then. Men's hockey first started in the 1920 summer Olympics but was moved to the winter Olympics in 1924. Woman's hockey wasn't in the Olympics until 1998. The rules were first set by the students at McGill University in Montreal, Canada in 1879. Supposedly ice hockey wasn't played in America until 1893. Ice hockey is a very fast moving and physical sport. Hockey is a sport played on ice where the players push a puck with a stick and try to get the puck into the opponent's goal. Almost every part of their body is covered in protective gear. They wear helmets, mouth guards, shin guards, gloves, neck guards, shoulder pads, knee pads, hockey pants and more. They wear skates that are enforced with a rigid shell to protect a blade from cutting through it. They have a rounded heel and no toe picks so the skates are not dangerous in a pile-up. The players have more equipment on but those pieces are not as important. There are many terms in hockey. There is body checking, boarding, charging, cross-checking, elbowing, forechecking, holding, hooking, icing, and much more. They is also off-sides, clearing the puck, power plays and more. There is wrist shots, slap shots, penalty shots and one-timer shots and more. Off-sides and boarding are probably the most important. Off-sides is when an opponent gets behind the last defense man. So you can not go behind the last defense man on the other team. Boarding is when a player hits another player with a boarding check. There are six different positions. There is right, center and left forward, right and left defense, and goalie. The goalie protects the goal and has special equipment. The have a different helmet, a special glove to catch the puck with, a wider stick, and bigger shin-guards. Also they can use their hands to catch the puck. The defense help protect their half of the rink. They stay back on their side most of the time but sometimes come out to help the offense. They stop the breakaways and stop the other team from getting to their goal. The offense are the players who play up. They are usually the ones to score. They are the ones who goes all the way to the other teams goal and tries to get a goal. All the positions are equally important. Ice hockey training is very intense. They have their workouts personalized to focus on their strengths and weaknesses. They focus on lower body strength, balance, strength, speed, agility, and hand-eye coordination. In the 2010 Winter Olympics Canada's Women Ice Hockey team took home gold. The USA took home silver and Finland took home bronze. The USA was doing great. They won every game except the last game which was where they took home silver. The last game they played Canada and lost 2 to 0. Finland won their game against Sweden and won 3 to 2 and brought home bronze. Ice hockey is a complex sport but it is very popular and has many fans.
