3 What is Hockey? Hockey is an exciting team sport that requires skill, strength and teamwork. Versions of hockey include: ice hockey, street hockey and inline hockey. Ice Hockey Ice hockey requires players to wear ice skates and pads and is played on an ice rink with a frozen rubber puck. Street Hockey Street hockey can be played on almost any indoor or outdoor surface. Empty parking lots, net-less tennis courts, blacktop playgrounds, basketball courts and indoor gyms can all become street hockey rinks. Inline Hockey Inline hockey is very similar to street hockey except players wear inline skates on their feet. Inline hockey is often referred to as roller hockey and can be played indoors or outdoors. Object of the Game The object of the game is to score more goals than the other team by shooting the puck or ball into your opponent s net. Teams and Players To play hockey you must have 12 players in the game at any given time (six per team). The positions are three forwards, two defensemen and one goalie. Three forwards comprise one line consisting of a center (C), right wing (RW) and left wing (LW). Game Format A regulation NHL ice hockey game consists of three 20-minute periods, including two 17-minute intermissions. If the score is tied after all three periods, an extra five minute period called overtime, is played. If the score is still tied after the overtime period, a shootout takes place. The shootout consists of a single player from each team taking turns in a one-on-one breakaway against the goalie with no other players involved. COLORADOAVALANCHE.COM 1

4 Positions Center C The center is typically the team s quarterback. The center usually directs play in both the offensive and defensive zones. The center also sets up plays for his/her teammates to score goals in the opposing zone and takes most of the faceoffs. Right/Left Wing RW LW The wings or wingers play on the right or left side of the center. They cover their areas as the forward line enters and plays in the opposing zone. Defenders D The defenders usually play behind the forward line. This allows them to keep the puck in play in the opposing zone and keeps them in position to more easily defend their own goal when the play returns to their zone. There are two defensive positions, right defense and left defense. Right/Left Defense D Like wingers, right and left defenders mainly cover their areas both in their opposing zone and their own zone. In their own zone, they stay close to the goal so that they can help defend the goal from the opposing team. Goalie G The goalie s job is to stay in or near his/her goal area, which can be called the crease, and stop the other team from scoring. A goalie s responsibility is to prevent the puck from entering the goal. He or she can kick it, catch it, grab it or bat it out of the way - just do not let it go past the goal line. The goalie usually plays the entire game and rarely moves away from his/her crease. 2 COLORADOAVALANCHE.COM

6 Equipment Street Hockey Equipment Street hockey is played with street hockey sticks (usually a wooden shaft with a plastic blade) and either a plastic puck or no-bounce ball. This equipment is specially designed for street hockey and works best on playgrounds and gym floors. It s only slightly different from the equipment used to play ice hockey. Your best bet is to wear comfortable sports clothes or jeans and a T-shirt with your equipment. You should wear athletic shoes that are good for the gym or the playground. Forward & Defenseman Gear In regulation street hockey forwards and defensemen should wear elbow, knee and shin pads, a mouthguard and an approved protective helmet. However in physical education class or a pick-up game with your friends, equipment is not required but it is recommended. Goalie Gear Goalies are required to wear a helmet with a face mask, chest protector, blocking glove, catching glove and goalie leg pads. Goalie sticks are specially designed with a wider blade. For physical education class and pick-up games with your friends a minimum of a helmet with a mask, stick and gloves is required. Ice Hockey Equipment Due to the physical nature of the sport and speed of the game, ice hockey requires more pads. Most of the padding is worn underneath the player s uniform and not seen. The most important piece of equipment is ice hockey skates. Ice hockey players use sticks that are usually made of a composite material and have a custom curve on the blade. The Puck The puck is five ounces of solid vulcanized rubber, three inches in diameter and one inch thick. The puck is frozen before games to make it bounce resistant. Forward & Defenseman Gear In regulation ice hockey forwards and defensemen are required to wear helmets, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, shin guards and hockey pants. Many players elect to wear a protective shield attached to their helmet and a mouthguard. Goalie Gear Goalies are required to wear a helmet with a full facemask, a neck guard (to protect from skate blades), shoulder pads, arm pads and a chest protector. The signature pieces of goalie equipment are the blocker, catching glove and leg pads. 4 COLORADOAVALANCHE.COM

8 Division of Playing Surface The ice hockey playing surface is divided into three distinct sections or zones. These areas are referred to as the offensive zone (area the team attacks from the blue line to the end of the boards), the neutral zone (area between the blue lines, divided by the red line) and the defensive zone (area the team defends from the end boards to the blue line). The zones are determined by lines that are painted in the ice and extend up the side boards. There are five primary lines on the playing surface two red goal lines, two blue lines and a center red line. GOAL LINE GOAL LINE CENTER (RED) LINE CENTER/FACE OFF GOALIE CREASE DEFENSIVE ZONE OFFENSIVE ZONE BLUE LINE CENTER (RED) LINE FACE OFF CIRCLE GOALIE CREASE DEFENSIVE ZONE NEUTRAL ZONE OFFENSIVE ZONE Street Hockey Street hockey can be played on almost any indoor or outdoor surface. An official street hockey rink, however, is divided into two sections or zones. These areas are referred to as the offensive zone and the defensive zone. Ice Hockey An official NHL rink is 200 feet long and 85 feet wide with rounded corners. Walls surround the ice to keep the puck in play. These walls, called boards, are three feet high with shatterproof glass extending from the top to protect fans from flying pucks. 6 COLORADOAVALANCHE.COM

9 Time to Play Street Hockey Time to face off! Basically, there are three types of faceoffs: 1. Standard Faceoff: Opposing centers face each other with their sticks one foot apart on the ground. Be ready because the referee is going to drop the puck, and then it s hockey time! 2. Stick-To-Stick Faceoff: Opposing centers face each other with their sticks on the ground and the puck in between them. Then you tap the ground and then your opponent s stick three times (ground-stick, ground-stick, ground-stick) and go for the puck. 3. In-Bounding Faceoff: When the puck goes out of play, the last team to touch it loses possession. Players on the defending team must stand at least 10 feet from the spot where the puck went out of bounds, then the inbounding team puts the puck back into play. The inbounding player must make a pass before a shot on goal can be taken. Stopping Play During a game, play is stopped either after a goal, when the puck leaves the playing surface, when the referee calls a penalty or when a rules infraction occurs. When the referee blows the whistle that means to stop playing and listen for the call. Scoring A Goal A player is credited with scoring a goal when he/she is the last person to touch the puck before it enters the opponent s net, usually the player who shoots the puck at the net. Getting An Assist An assist is awarded to the players who take part in the play immediately preceding the goal. For example, often times when a player scores a goal they receive help from their teammates in the form of a pass. As many as two players can get credit with an assist of a goal. Ice Hockey Anytime there is a stoppage in play in ice hockey there is a faceoff. The only faceoff used in ice hockey is the standard faceoff, where the referee drops the puck between two centers. COLORADOAVALANCHE.COM 7

10 Rules Since street hockey and ice hockey are played on different surfaces there are variations of the same rules that apply to each sport. Each one of these rules will result in a stoppage in play when it occurs. Street Hockey Icing Sending the puck from behind your own goal all the way past the opponent s goal line without being touched by anybody on the other team. Play begins at the spot closest to where the puck was last touched. If, however, the opposing goalie touches the puck when it reaches the other end, play continues as normal. Offside There is only a center red line in street hockey (no blue lines like in ice hockey). You re offside if both your feet cross the center red line into your opponent s zone before the puck crosses the line. Offside Pass When a player passes the puck from his/her team s zone (behind the center red line) to a teammate who has already crossed the center red line (before the puck) and is in the opposing team s zone. Out of Bounds If the puck is knocked outside the playing surface, it s out of bounds. The last team to touch it loses possession. Ice Hockey Icing A player shoots the puck from behind the center red line across the opponent s goal line and the puck is not touched by an opposing player until it crosses the goal line. If the opposing team touches the puck first after it crosses the goal line, icing is called and a faceoff is held at the opposite end. If the team that shoots the puck touches it first after it crosses the goal line, icing is not called and play continues. Icing is not called when the team that shoots the puck is shorthanded or playing with fewer players on the ice than the other team. Offside Both skates of a player cross the opposing team s blue line before the puck crosses the line. Offside Pass When a player passes the puck from behind his/her own blue line to a teammate who has passed the blue line and is in the opposing team s zone. Out of Bounds If the puck is knocked outside the playing surface, it s out of bounds. Generally a faceoff is held where the puck was shot. 8 COLORADOAVALANCHE.COM

11 Icing A player shoots the puck from behind the center (red) line across the opponent s goal line. Offside Both feet of a player cross the opposing team s blue line before the puck crosses the line. COLORADOAVALANCHE.COM 9

12 Penalties Street Hockey Penalties are strictly forbidden. The safety of all players is the first priority. If a penalty occurs, the player committing the penalty will be pulled from the game and will sit out for two minutes during which time his/her team will play shorthanded. Penalty Descriptions High Sticking Keep your stick down. If you carry your stick above your waist you will receive a penalty. Checking Body checks are illegal in street hockey. Do not use your body to make contact with another player or force another player into a wall, barrier or out of bounds. Interference You may not interfere with another player who does not have the puck.force another player into a wall, barrier or out of bounds. Charging Charging is similar to checking. You can t run, jump or fling yourself into an opponent. Slashing No striking or slashing an opponent with your stick. Fighting If you fight, you will be removed from the game and face additional punishment. Tripping Knocking your opponent s feet out from under them with your stick or feet is tripping. Holding You may not interfere with your opponent s progress with your hands. Hooking You may not interfere with your opponent s progress with your stick. Elbowing No throwing elbows. 10 COLORADOAVALANCHE.COM

13 Ice Hockey Ice hockey has major and minor penalties. If you break a rule, you go to the penalty box for a set amount of time while your team plays with one less player. This is known as a power play for the team with one extra skater. The team playing with fewer players is considered shorthanded. Minor Penalty A minor penalty is the most common form of penalty. A player who receives a minor penalty must sit in the penalty box and remain off the ice for two minutes. A double minor penalty requires a player to sit in the penalty box for four minutes. If a goal is scored against the team with fewer players the penalty ends immediately. Major Penalty A major penalty is a stronger degree of penalty for many of the same infractions that apply to minor penalties. A player who receives a major penalty must sit in the penalty box and remain off the ice for five minutes. If a goal is scored during a major penalty the penalty does not end. COLORADOAVALANCHE.COM 11

14 Penalties (continued) Ice Hockey Penalty Descriptions Boarding Violently checking an opponent into the boards. Charging Taking more than three strides or jumping before checking an opponent. Cross-Checking Hitting an opponent with both hands on the stick and then extending the arms while the check is being delivered. Delay of Game Imposed when a player or goalkeeper purposely delays the game in any way. For example, knocking the net off or clearing the puck over the glass in the defensive zone. Elbowing Using an elbow to strike an opponent. Fighting A fistfight between players. Hooking Impeding the forward progress of an opposing player by hooking him/her with the blade of the stick. Interference Impeding the progress of an opponent who does not have the puck or who is trying to gain possession of the puck. Kneeing Using your knee to impede an opponent. Misconduct/Unsportsmanlike Conduct Using abusive language or gestures or failing to follow a referee s orders. Roughing Shoving or being involved in a minor altercation or scuffle, a less severe form of fighting. High-Sticking Striking an opponent with the stick above shoulder level. Holding Using your hands to grasp an opponent or his/her equipment. Slashing Swinging your stick and striking an opponent, thus impeding his/her forward progress. Spearing Using your stick in a stablike motion toward an opponent. Tripping Tripping an opponent with your stick or any part of your body. 12 COLORADOAVALANCHE.COM

18 Colorado Avalanche History The Colorado Avalanche are proud members of the National Hockey League (NHL) and play their home games at Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. The NHL was formed in 1917 and has become one of the most successful professional sports leagues in the world. It started with four teams, and through a series of expansions, the league is now composed of 30 active franchises. The league draws many skilled players from all over the world and currently has players from nearly 20 countries. The NHL is comprised of 23 teams from the United States and seven teams from Canada. During the regular season, each team plays 82 games; 41 games at home and 41 games on the road. At the end of the regular season, the team that finishes with the most points in each division is crowned the division champion. The team with the most points at the end of the season is awarded the Presidents Trophy. Sixteen of the NHL s 30 teams qualify for the Stanley Cup playoffs, where teams battle to win the best-of-seven series in order to advance to the next round. The winning team is awarded the Stanley Cup, the oldest professional sports trophy in North America and the most recognizable trophy in all of sports. The Avalanche were founded in 1972 as the Quebec Nordiques within the NHL s rival league, the World Hockey Association (WHA). The Nordiques became members of the NHL in 1979 as a result of the NHL-WHA merger. Following the season, the Nordiques were sold to the COMSAT Entertainment Group of Denver, which relocated the club there and renamed it as the Avalanche. In the club s first season in Denver, the Avalanche won the Pacific Division and went on to sweep the Florida Panthers in the Stanley Cup Finals, becoming the first NHL team to win the Stanley Cup in the season following a relocation. Among teams in the five major North American professional sports leagues, only the National Football League (NFL) s Washington Redskins have also accomplished the feat. This was the first major professional sports championship a Denver-based team would bring to the city. In the 2001 Stanley Cup Finals, the Avalanche defeated the New Jersey Devils 4-3 to win their second and most recent championship. As a result, they are the only active NHL team that has won all of its Stanley Cup Final appearances. Coincidentally, the Devils had preceded the Avalanche in Denver; they were called the Colorado Rockies. The Avalanche have won nine division titles (including their first eight in a row in Denver, the longest such streak in NHL history) and qualified for the playoffs in each of their first ten seasons in Denver; this streak ended in COLORADOAVALANCHE.COM
