Ice Hockey, in Sherwood, 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 Sherwood 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.
