However, a player must first have possession of the puck to do so. In this chapter, we will learn what it means to have possession.
REMEMBER: When on offense, a team is trying to score goals. The team with the highest number of goals at the end of the game is the winner.
Teams will constantly trade ownership or possession of the puck throughout a game. This results in a team transitioning from offense to defense and vice versa. While on a defense, a team cannot move the puck. They must simply react to what offensive players do and try to regain possession of the puck.
