ALL ABOUT PENALTIES IN HOCKEY
If you want to know all about hockey you first have to know about the penalties. Penalties are when you do a bad play and you have to sit somewhere for a amount of time depending on the bad play.
The first penalty you have to know is tripping. Tripping is when you use the legs of the stick around the other person and make that other person fall. also when you trip someone when they on on a breakaway they get a penalty shot. A penalty shot is when you start from the middle and skate and shot at the goalie with no one in your way. A breakaway is when you skate with the puck and nobody is in front of you.
Another penalty to know is a check. A check is when you use the body on the other player and crush him to the boards. However there is and exception. If you check the other player and also touching the puck you will not a penalty.
The next penalty is called a cross-checking. Checking and cross-checking are very different things When you cross-check you hold 2 hands on the stick and use the stick to hit the player.
All of those penalties would be a minute and a half but the next penalty is so bad it is a 5 minute penalty. It is called fighting. When you fight on the ice it is very similar to regular fighting except you don’t go to the penalty box. How ever the difference between regular fighting and ice hockey fighting is that ice hockey fighting is on the ice and also when you punch you punch you have gloves and a helmet to protect you.
Know that you know about the penalties in ice hockey maybe know you can understand the game better.
