Ice hockey: One of the very elaborate sport

If football is dubbed the King sport of the Summer Olympics, ice hockey also occupies a similar position during the Winter Olympics.


Long-standing origin

There are many theories about the advent of hockey but so far the majority still believe that this sport comes from an ancient Greek game called “keritizein”. From the end of the 18th century, hockey was gradually improved by the British until it became a unified whole as the present.

According to the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) regulations, the standard game field must meet the basic requirement of size 60.98x30m. The rules of playing ice hockey are quite simple with each 6-player team using skateboard sticks (made of wood, aluminum or synthetic plastic) to hit the ball into the opponent’s net. Each match lasts 60 minutes. Also, the match is divided equally into 3 rounds without time off. The team that takes the ball into the opponent’s net more will win. The big difference between hockey versus football is that there is no time limit and the number of substitutions in each game. Half-time breaks last from 15 minutes 30 seconds to 17 minutes.

Rules of play and how to play field hockey

Field hockey is a sport that takes place between two teams of up to eleven people on the field.


Teams can change people with as many people and times as they want, at any time during the match, except when the corner kick is in progress. There are two exceptions to this rule: when the defensive goalkeeper is injured or disqualified, or the player may leave the court, but must wait until the player has made a touch of the ball for another person to enter.

Players are allowed to control the ball with the side of the front and with the edges of the head and stick, with the exception of safety reasons that players should not hit hard on the ball with a horizontal stroke forehand due to the difficulty of controlling the height and direction of the ball from such a shot.

The surface of the staff should always be on the right side for the right-handed when swinging the club from right to left. Sticks for lefties have produced but are extremely rare. However, the rule does not allow people to use this type of cane. To play from left to right the player must make the surface of the clubface contact with the ball by turning the clubhead, possibly by rotating the handle about 180 degrees.

Other rules can include: do not touch the ball with your feet and with your hands, do not obstruct the opponent’s movement, do not swing the club too high, and there is no third party. If the player is dribbling at the same time losing control and kicking the ball or another player intervenes, that player is not allowed to control the ball or continue to dribble. Rules do not allow players to kick the ball to gain control of the ball, so the ball will belong to the other team.

Conversely, if kicking does not provide the team with any control over the ball, the game will continue. Players must not prevent others from having a chance to make a shot of any kind. Do not push/use your body or stick to hinder your team’s progress. The penalty for this error is to give the ball to the opponent and if it recurs this action may be booked. When an athlete performs a free kick or a corner kick, the shot may not pass high as this is considered dangerous.

In the end, there cannot be three players touching the ball at the same time. Two players on two opposing teams can compete with the ball, however, if one player interferes with the dispute it will be considered a third party and the ball will belong to the team with less participants in the ball situation.

Hockey – The art of fighting sport

Hiding behind thick clothes, using sturdy long sticks and having to stand on a wide contact surface of less than 1cm, hockey is really a dangerous fighting sport.


A few years ago, most people had absolutely no idea of ​​this sport and did not even know the name Hockey. The reason why hockey is not so popular in some countries is probably due to its complexity.

The first is the technical element. Unlike other competitive sports, hockey requires players to master at least one important skill, which is skating. Moving on a synthetic plastic floor with a special type of shoe similar to roller skates (without a wheel on the sole of the shoe but instead with a metal slice), skating requires the player to be able to hold the balance by special. According to the majority of young people who have learned to play ice skating, to be able to learn how to stand firm, it takes at least 2-3 training sessions. And to move really as you like, it takes a lot more time and it depends on the ability of each person.

As a fighting sport, hockey involves factors such as collision, rotation and anyone who has ever played football, basketball knows, even when moving on the feet, these factors also cause a lot of difficulty for standing, let alone moving by skates.

Besides technical issues, Hockey is also complex in both equipment and competition equipment. Other equipments such as hats, protective clothing, gloves, and sticks are also very expensive. This makes it difficult for those who want to own a real kit in this game. Even in the event of a sufficient purchase, being able to wear a thick outfit, wear a bulky hat that limits visibility, and then practice playing is another matter.

From the outside, hockey is not really “eye-catching.” In the audience, only one large group of bulky players is gathered around a small disk that is difficult to see. The competing scenes didn’t have any special beauty, all showed that this is a boring sport for the viewers, but in the posture, the player is completely different.

Every sport needs full-body movement, but most of them focus on technical elements in only one part (feet with football, hands with basketball, table tennis…), Hockey, in contrast, requires dexterity in both hands and feet. Although the skill of skating is difficult and requires a lot of practice time, the hand is still the main body of hockey competition, so of course, hockey players must be dexterity. It is this complexity that attracts some young people to hockey.

The difference between NHL and AHL you may not know

More than ordinary fans know professional hockey in the US extends to much larger sections. There are hockey teams in the deep south as well as in the cold northern states and everywhere in between.


That being the case, many people don’t know the difference between different domestic hockey leagues, mostly between AHL and NHL.

AHL is the United States Hockey League, consists of 29 professional hockey teams, and is mainly based in the United States. AHL primarily serves as the main development site for NHL, which is the National Hockey League. NHL is a not-for-profit association that runs a hockey tournament, comprising 30 clubs (franchise), of which 6 are from Canada and 24 are from the US. This tournament is considered the leading professional ice hockey tournament in the world.

Kết quả hình ảnh cho NHL và AHL

The most obvious factor distinguishing these tournaments is money. The minimum wage for the AHL is $ 36, 500, while for the NHL is 500,000 USD. However, the basic difference between the two tournaments is quite long and complicated. Each tournament includes skilled players, and the links are common in NHL and AHL, where clubs will give some of their players, especially a player, to their branch. in ECHL. In general, in NHL teams, players have the basis and development for AHL.

It is slightly different from AHL. For each affiliate agreement (for the most part), the NHL franchise pays players money, regardless of whether the team is privately owned or not. The job of recruiting coaches and other hockey operators is the responsibility of the NHL team, allowing them to take overall control of the players’ staff. Here, development is considered to be the highest priority, and as such, the quality of the AHL teams reflects the free contracts of the parent club and the drafters.

Always assume that the difference in game speed between the two levels is huge. The truth is that the difference is very thin, if not significant. The main difference is not the speed but the combination of skill and intelligence of the game.

Kết quả hình ảnh cho NHL và AHL

Looking at players from different leagues, others develop in the AHL, however, due to things like size, level of cognitive skills, age and others, it is difficult to reach NHL. This, however, does not represent a true picture of a player’s skill level on an individual level. As in fact, AHL and NHL players can be at the same level when it comes to talent and skills on an individual basis.

In general, a player in NHL tends to be able to read games better than players in AHL or other minor tournaments like ECHL. The best way to prove this is to visualize killing a penalty while your opponent is already in your area, from the perspective of the target person. In this case, you will be your target waiting to explode, puck in the corner and an offensive player with you. In AHL, a top player can have two or three options, while at NHL, a good player will be able to make up to four options, because of his ability to read games plus the level. His experience clearly excels in AHL and small tournaments.
