Ice hockey and field hockey are two of the most popular and well-known forms of hockey. Both are played at the Olympic Games, although field hockey is played at the Summer Olympics and ice hockey is played at the Winter Olympics. Like field hockey, women's ice hockey is a non-contact sport, but men's ice hockey is a full-contact sport in which heavy collisions often occur. Players skate over the ice at high speeds, so the game is fast, rough and exciting to watch. As a result, it's become a major spectator sport, especially in North America where it is a billion-dollar industry. This industry, as well as the sport itself, is run in North America by the National Hockey League (NHL). But in the rest of the world, the sport is governed by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF).


Even though Europeans had skated on ice for centuries, and played hockey-like games for just as long, the two weren't combined until early in the 19th century. This happened in...

... Underwater Hockey
Underwater Hockey, as played at the University of Guelph, is a game played by 2 teams of 6 swimmers wearing snorkelling gear and using a short stick to chase a brass puck along the bottom of a swimming pool. Equipment consists of snorkel, face mask with safety glass, fins, playing stick (10 to 14 inches long), protective glove on the stick hand and a head-cap with ear protectors. A plastic coated or brass puck is used with two goal troughs at opposite ends of the swimming pool. It is a non-contact sport.

... Uniform
Pittsburgh Penguin's first NHL coach Red Sullivan was pretty annoyed when the club's management introduced a black, blue and white uniform which vaguely followed the markings of the little bird. "If we play a bad game," Sullivan predicted, "the sports writers will say we looked like a bunch of nuns skating around out there."

To be sure the nickname did not present the swashbuckling image of the baseball...

When Wieslaw Jobczyk came to the Spodek Arena, it was a return to the place he scored a hat trick in Polish hockey’s biggest win, against the USSR.

The win didn’t come in an exhibition game. It didn’t come against the Soviets’ reserve team. It was this month 40 years ago when the then new and futuristic arena in Katowice hosted the 1976 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship and Poland opened the tournament against the then best national team in the world.

The arena opened just five years earlier and Poland got the event because the original host Vienna, Austria, offered to withdraw since Innsbruck filled in for Denver to host the 1972 Olympics.

The Soviet “Red Machine” was virtually unbeatable and won Olympic gold for the fourth time in a row just two months earlier. One of the results en route to gold: a 16-1 win against Poland. The Soviets had won 12 of the 13 last World Championships and starred players like Vladislav Tretiak, Valeri Kharlamov, Boris...

EAST ALTON -- Tyler Schaeffer scored his record-breaking goal, and it couldn’t have come at a better time for the Edwardsville Tigers.

Career goal No. 127 for Schaeffer was the first of two goals scored by the Tigers in a span of 40 seconds late in the second period to break a tie with Chaminade. Edwardsville tacked on an empty-net goal in the 4-1 win at the East Alton Ice Arena.

Legendary Canadian ice hockey player Gordie Howe, who was nicknamed "Mr Hockey", has died at the age of 88.

Howe spent most of his career with the Detroit Red Wings, winning the Stanley Cup four times.

He was in the top 10 of scorers for 21 consecutive years and was named Most Valuable Player six times, before finally retiring in 1980.

Howe was also named an NHL All Star 23 times and was inducted into the hockey Hall of Fame in 1972.

Gordie Howe died just before 08:00 on Friday at his son's home in Ohio, according to Sportsnet and CBS News. CNN reported his son Marty as confirming the news.

Howe's death was confirmed on the Twitter account of the Detroit Red Wings but it did not provide details on the cause.

Gordie Howe had suffered a stroke in 2014.

He made his debut in 1946, played 26 NHL and six World Hockey Association seasons and held many of the scoring records until the rise of fellow Canadian-born legend Wayne...

I believe that when commentators shout "score!" when a player scores, it's more often than not preceded by "he shoots". Therefore, what the commentators really say is: "he shoots, he scores!". But they say it at a very rapid pace that to any regular audience, it might sound like just "score!".

Also, goal and point in ice hockey are two different things. A goal is a point but a point is not neccessairly a goal. A point can mean either an assist or a goal. Therefore, a player's statistics, or his contribution to the team's goal tally, is measured most of the time by his point total. For example, a player can have 10 points in the season, which he scored 7 goals and has 3 assists for example. But in ice hockey, a player can still get an assist if he assists the assister (I hope this is clear). For example, when referring to basketball terms for example, an assist is the player who makes a direct pass to another player who scores a basket. In ice hockey, a player can get an...

7 - Joe Malone, Quebec, January 31, 1920, at Quebec is the most in NHL history. Joe Malone, was the greatest scorer in the early history of the NHL, Malone began playing pro

…fessional hockey in 1909. He became captain and coach of the Quebec Bulldogs in 1911 and promptly led them to two consecutive Stanley Cup championships. He scored 9 goals in one of the 1913 playoff games. After the Quebec team folded, Malone joined the Montreal Canadiens in the NHL's first season, 1917-18. He scored 5 goals in their first game and ended the season with 44 goals in 20 games. The Quebec franchise resumed play in 1919 and Malone returned to the team.

Malone returned to Montreal for one season, went to Hamilton, Ontario, for another, then played with Montreal again in 1922-23. He retired...

I have been thinking lately how to talk and write about sport results or the score of a game.
Here is how I have figured it out, what do you think?

England is leading/is losing/lost/won (by three to one / 3 - 1)
England is leading/is losing/lost/won (by three goals to one / 3 - 1)
England is leading/is losing/lost/won (by one goal to zero/nil / 3 - 0)
England is leading/is losing/lost/won (two nil/zero / two to nil/zero / 2 - 0)

The match/game/score is now even 3-3 (three three / three to three) in the second half .
The match/game/score is now even 3-3 in the third period (ice hockey).


This is how I would say them
England is leading/is losing/lost/won (by three to one / 3 - 1) - England are leading/losing/lost/won three one.
England is leading/is losing/lost/won (by three goals to one / 3 - 1) - OK
England is leading/is losing/lost/won (by one goal to zero/nil / 3 - 0) - by three goals to nil/ England are...

The trick for any commentator is to capture a game's spirit. This is a common point of contention with some of our most prominent voices, particularly the multi-sport guys. Jim Nantz does golf well because he wasn't programmed to express emotion, but this doesn't work as well for the NCAA Tournament or NFL. Joe Buck was oft criticized for not making the big moments big enough, particularly in the wake of the Helmet Catch where he sounded like someone offering a great deal on aluminum siding, although he's gotten much better in the years since. Still, properly conveying exciting moments without coming off as disingenuously shouty -- one particular Gus Johnson-shaped commentator comes to mind -- is what commentating is all about: you know the famous calls and the legends they make, both on the field and behind the mic.

On this front, there's no one better than Mike "Doc" Emrick, NBC's lead play-by-play announcer for the NHL on NBC, who will take his talents to the airwaves...

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- While Amrit Gill was growing up in a Vancouver suburb, watching "Hockey Night in Canada" was a family staple that brought three generations together. Her parents and grandparents were immigrants from India, but ice hockey -- with its similarities to field hockey, one of their native country's most popular sports -- connected them all, despite the language barrier of the broadcasts.

"My grandmother did not speak a word of English," Gill said. "But she could tell you what a goal was and who was winning or not because the game was just so electric that you do get revved up watching."

One day in 2009, the then-teenage Gill heard there was a television broadcast of hockey in the Punjabi language. She didn't quite believe it at first, but it was true. There was a Punjabi ice hockey broadcast -- not English, not French, Punjabi.

"I turned it on, and for all of us sitting there, it was a moment of shock and almost disbelief because we...
