Ice Hockey Basic Rules For Kids
Ice Hockey Rules
There are six players allowed on the ice per team.
Hockey players are skating for most of the game, trying to shoot a puck into the other team's net to get a goal.
The puck is a small object in the shape of a disc that players hit with their hockey sticks.
Teams earn a goal when the puck crosses the goal line just in front of the net past the goalie!
Hockey games last 60 minutes.
Each hockey game has three parts called periods.
Each period lasts 20 minutes.
At the end of the three periods, the team with the most goals wins!
The referee will stop play when a player does something wrong.
Hockey players are not allowed to hit each other with their sticks. This is called slashing.
