Helpful Definition for: Ice Hockey

Ice Hockey, in Sacramento, is a team sport that is played on ice, where skaters hit a puck into the opponent's net using their stick. This fast-paced physical sport is most popular in the areas that are sufficiently cold for natural reliable seasonal ice cover, such as the Czech Republic, Latvia, the Nordic countries, Russia, Slovakia, Germany, Austria, Switzerland but mostly known to be played in Canada and the northern latitudes of the United States. Ice hockey, being a full contact sport, has to deal with frequent injuries. Protective equipment are therefore highly recommended and are enforced in all competitive situations. These include helmets, shoulder pads, elbow pads, mouth guard, protective gloves, heavily padded shorts, athletic cups, shin pads, skates, and neck protectors. Goaltenders may additionally use different gears, neck guards, chest/arm protectors, blockers, catch gloves, and leg pads.

Ice hockey in Sacramento is played on a hockey rink, involving six players, including goaltender, per side on the ice at any time, each of whom wears ice skates. The basic rule of the game is to score goals by shooting a hard vulcanized rubber disc, called the puck, into the opponent's goal net placed at the opposite end of the rink. The puck may be controlled by the players using a long stick with a blade, usually curved at one end.

Players are not allowed to hold the puck in their hand pass it to their teammates using their hands or to kick the puck into the opponent’s goal, unless they are in the defensive zone.

The Threat of Plastic on the Environment Evolves into “Microplastics”
Chris Boyle NEW YORK – As if the danger that discarded, non-biodegradable plastics pose to the environment aren’t enough, a new breed is making its presence felt; a dangerous evolution known as “Microplastics.” Microplastics are not a specific kind of plastic, but rather any type of plastic fragment that is less than five millimeters in length; they enter natural ecosystems from a variety of sources, including, but not limited to, cosmetics, clothing, and industrial processes.
