On-the-fly changes in ice hockey

1

Substitutions are one of the most unique aspects of ice hockey. Hockey is different from other sports where players must wait until a play-stoppage, or check in with an official. In ice hockey, players are allowed to enter and exit play freely in the middle of the action.

A substitution is legal as long as each team maintains the correct total number of players on the ice (six, including the goalie). Seem confusing? Don’t stress. This guide explains when to change lines on the fly, and offers some tips on how to effectively call for a substitution.

On the Attack

You should only change on the fly when your team is on the attack. Don’t skate to the bench for a line change if the puck is in your defensive zone. “On the attack” means that your team is safely in possession of the puck, or that your team just dumped the puck into the offensive zone. Regardless, never change when the opposing team has the puck. This is the most important part of any line change.

In ice hockey, a line is a group of forwards that play in a group, or "shift", during a game.

A complete forward line consists of a left wing, a center, and a right wing, while a pair of defensemen who play together are called "partners." Typically, an NHL team dresses twelve forwards along four lines and three pairs of defensemen, though some teams elect to dress a seventh defenseman, or a thirteenth forward. In ice hockey, players are substituted "on the fly," meaning a substitution can occur even in the middle of play as long as proper protocol is followed (under typical ice hockey rules, the substituting player cannot enter the ice until the substituted player is within a short distance of the bench and not actively playing the puck); substitutions can still be made during stoppages. Usually, coordinated groups of players (called linemates) are substituted simultaneously in what are called line changes. Linemates may change throughout the game at the coach's...

Hockey players, particularly those on the forward line, are in action only for short periods -- usually 40- to 50-second stretches. Substitutions are allowed freely -- at any time play stops and often even as play continues. Because hockey alone among major team sports allows substitutions on the fly, smooth line changes are vital. And because of the importance of match-ups, line-change strategy is crucial.

Teams at various levels have differing limits on the number of players allowed to be active for a game. In the National Hockey League, for example, teams typically employ squads of four attacking lines -- a center and two wings -- and three pairs of defensemen along with two goalkeepers, a total of 20 eligible players. Of the four attacking lines, most teams use one "checking" line, a threesome whose task is to thwart the opponent's best scoring line.

When play is stopped, the team designated as the visiting...

Offsides

The basic rule is that the puck must enter the offensive zone before ANY of the offensive players do. If the puck does go while an offensive person(s) is in the zone then all offensive players must "tag up" and leave the zone before any of the offensive players enter the zone again.

Here's a link to the NHL rule which explains it in great detail.

Icing

It is a great idea to dump the puck into the offensive zone (the other team then has their backs to us) but you cannot just dump it from anywhere. You must cross the center red line before you dump the puck or it is considered icing. So if the puck crosses the center red line and...

Our hometown team, the Vancouver Canucks, have once again made it into the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Hockey-talk will be on everyone’s lips – not to mention on everyone’s TV and radio, so here’s a look at the vocabulary of hockey through a description of how the game is played.

The Basic Game

Hockey teams have six players on the ice at the same time, five skaters and one goalie. Facing the opposing team’s net, the first three are the attacking players, the forwards. Their positions are called, from left to right, left wing, centre, and right wing. Behind these are two defensemen, left and right, and then, in the net or goal, is the goalie. The goalie wears a protective mask, thicker padding, and big gloves, and he carries an extra-wide stick. A goalie, since he doesn’t skate up and down the rink like his teammates, usually plays the whole game. The rest of the team sit on the...

Ice Hockey is a contact team sport played on ice, usually in a rink, in which two teams of skaters use their sticks to shoot a vulcanized rubber puck into their opponent's net to score points. Ice hockey teams usually consist of six players each: one goaltender, and five players who skate up and down the ice trying to take the puck and score a goal against the opposing team.

A fast-paced, physical sport, ice hockey is most popular in areas of North America (particularly Canada and the northern United States) and northern and eastern Europe. Ice hockey is the official national winter sport of Canada,[1] where the game enjoys immense popularity. In North America, the National Hockey League (NHL) is the highest level for men's hockey and the most popular. The Kontinental Hockey League (KHL) is the highest league in Russia and much of Eastern Europe. The International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) is the formal governing body for international ice hockey. The IIHF manages...

The Australian Ice Hockey League (AIHL) is Australia's top-level ice hockey league. It is sanctioned by Ice Hockey Australia (a member of the International Ice Hockey Federation) and it is run by its own board of directors. AIHL players are semi-professional. Typically this means that players are not paid to play in the AIHL, but receive other benefits such as the use of a car, accommodation, flights/travel within Australia, and other benefits. Often these benefits are supplied or funded by sponsors and vary from team to team. The AIHL has attracted players up to and including NHL players. AIHL games are shorter than typical hockey games, consisting of two 15-minute periods and a 20-minute 3rd, instead of three 20-minute periods that are usually played under normal North American and IIHF hockey regulations.

History[edit]

The Australian Ice Hockey League (AIHL) was formed in 2000 following the collapse of the former national league. In its first season, the AIHL...

The Bauer Supreme S190 Ice Hockey Skate is your most traditionally built, pro-level skate in the new Supreme Line. The S190 features Bauer's premier Titanium Curv Composite boot, a full composite outsole, a pro-spec'd tongue and Bauer's pro-preferred LS3 Steel.

Besides the obvious lightweight and stiff benefits the composite boot offers, it also has an anatomically-correct fit right out of the box. To take it to the next level, the Curv material responds extremely well to heat molding, giving players a true customized fit. For even more comfort, Bauer gave the S190 the same liner that the previous MX3 skate had, called the Thermo Max 2. This liner does an excellent job of wicking away moisture, making sure feet stay planted throughout the game. The top of both sides of the quarter package come with Total Comfort Pads that alleviate high-ankle abrasions while the internal wear pads help to extend the life of the skate.

The lowers showcase a full composite outsole for...

The word rink is actually a Scottish word meaning course. The ice hockey rink was originally constructed for the sport of curling. When hockey-specific arenas were built, they retained the name “rink” for the sport. The first ever indoor hockey game was played in 1875 at Victoria Skating Rink in Montreal.

Rinks in North America, including those used in the NHL, are different from those used in the rest of the world. The IIHF (International Ice Hockey Federation) governs hockey in the rest of the world. But we will focus on the NHL specifications.

A rink is around 200 feet (~61m) in length and 85 feet wide (~26m). The rink is rectangular with rounded corners to keep play fast-paced. The edges of these limits are marked by walls rising forty two inches high called boards (acceptable ranges from 40-48 inches). Acrylic glass extends up above the boards to allow for an audience to watch safely behind and also allow...

Hockey is a game played by linebacker-sized men moving at vehicular speed on razor-sharp blades. Skaters will travel almost 200 miles in a single game, slicing, shredding and shaving a surface just 200 feet long, 85 feet wide and 1 inch thick.

The abuse the New Jersey Devils and Los Angeles Kings will heap upon their rinks during the Stanley Cup finals would pulverize a frozen lake, let alone the ice in your freezer. Yet the ice here at the Prudential Center will remain so smooth that a puck will slide over it with nary a untoward bounce.

Creating a rink suitable for the rigors of professional hockey is a feat of engineering, a lesson in chemistry and a work of art.

"It's a living, breathing apparatus," Nick Kryshak, the Devils' official ice technician, said of the flawless polycrystal plane he's created. "It's not too hard, it's not too chippy, it's not too soft. Every little thing matters. You want that perfect consistency."
