Hockey 101

from InTheNews,

Ice hockey is a fairly straight-forward sport. Think of it as football – except on ice, with big sticks and a smaller ball (the puck).
The aim is to score more goals than your opponent into a net, guarded by (funnily enough) a net-minder or goal-tender.
The rest of the team is comprised of five players, who play in a number of positions, similar to those on a football pitch. Two defensemen generally remain at the back of the five and are larger and more heavily-built than their team-mates. A centre is usually positioned in the middle of the rink and is the playmaker of the team, usually showing good all-round skills but particularly excellent vision and a solid and reliable pass.

continued... it sounds so easy!
