The Player Positions
We've already learned that ice hockey is a 5-on-5 game (not including the goalies). As a result, each team has six (6) players on the ice, five (5) skaters and one (1) goalie. Each of these players has a unique role and responsibility during a game.
Don't be intimidated by this picture. We'll walk you through every piece of it step by step in this chapter.
