O NLY $5.99 TIPS AND THE LATEST EQUIMENT Editorial Hockey is my life; it is a sport with many rules and statistics. These numbers vary from player to player, whether it’s how many goals someone has or a certain amount of penalty minutes a player has. Hockey is a very competitive sport every team wants to win. Yet not every team is successful the only way that you win is your determination and knowhow of the game. I will be talking about different ways to take the puck away from an opposing player, and I will also be talking about different kinds of hits. When you are playing the game of hockey there are many different ways to check a player and remove them from the puck. The first way you can remove a player from the puck is by hitting them. When you’re going to hit a player there is a specific way to hit them. First, you need to get low so bend your knees so that you don’t fall over when you are going to hit a player. After you do that you start to lean into the player so you are creating pressure on the person which would make them fall over. Another way that you can check a player is by lifting the players stick. So the way you lift the stick of the opposing player is by again getting low and then simply putting your hockey stick under there’s and then you lift your stick which will lift there’s and then you take the puck away.


Throughout hockey you will come across hitting for me, hitting is when you use psychical contact to remove players from the puck. In hockey there’s two different kinds of hits a clean hit and a dirty hit. What is a clean hit? A clean hit when you make shoulder to shoulder contact. A dirty hit or cheap shot is when you hit someone around the knees or head. This could get you suspended are penalized severely. The reason hockey is my passion is because it is the only sport that I really like; I started playing when I was a little kid and have kept playing up until now. Thank you for reading.

Hockey How To 1.

First you will need skates, shin pads, pants, helmet and cage, shoulder pads, elbow pads, gloves, neck guard, and a hockey stick.

2.

You will need to learn how to skate so use both of your legs and push outward.

3.

Third you need to know how to shoot so you take your stick and the puck and move the puck out and make it so that your blade is near flat and then pull it in quickly.

4.

In hockey we also have plays now the ones I will share are the really easy ones so first there is a “d to d� this means that the defence man will bank it off the boards and the other defence will


receive it. Last there is a “wheel� a wheel is when the defence men takes the puck rushes it up the ice to look for a play or an open man.
