Ice Hockey

Ice hockey is played on an oval ice rink. The rink is usually 200 feet long and 85 feet wide. It is a very fast moving game with five people on the ice for each team and a goalie. Each team has six players on the ice at one time, two defenders, a right and left one and three offensive players a center, a right, and left wing and a goalie. All the players wear a helmet that includes a mask, Shoulder pads, a neck pad, a pair of hockey skates, socks, pants, and a jersey to go over their chest equipment. The goalies are protected with even more padding and a special helmet. They all have sticks, that's a very important piece of equipment.
