The Players

A team consists of twenty players (18 skaters and two goaltenders).

One player on each team is appointed Captain. Each club may also appoint up to two Alternate Captains who assume the privileges of the Captain when he is not on the ice. Only the captain and alternate captains may confer with the referee during the game.

At even strength, there are six players on the ice at a time for each team, with one of those players being a goaltender. The goaltender may be “pulled” and replaced by another skater if the team desires. In the case of a penalty, a team may lose up to two players for onice play for the duration of the penalty. In overtime, teams are only allowed five players on the ice, including the goaltender.

Player’s uniforms must conform to those guidelines set by the league. For example, a player must have his name on the back of his jersey. Also, he may not wear 00 as a number.

OFFENSE

Center
Most like football quarterbacks in regards to play-making ability. Operating up and down the middle of the ice, centers lead their team’s attack by passing the puck between his two wings to set up a goal. Defensively, he tries to keep the play from leaving the attacking zone. As the play approaches his own goal, it’s the center’s job to hustle and break up the opposing team’s plays.

Wings
You can’t fly with just one. These guys follow the action up and down the rink on either side of the center. Left and right wings pass back and forth, trying to position themselves for a shot on goal.

DEFENSE

Defensemen
The two defensemen try to stop the incoming plays before any chance of scoring is possible. They block shots, clear the puck from their own net area and try to keep opposing forwards from gaining position in front of the goal. Offensively, they move the puck up the ice and pass to the forwards, then follow play into the attacking zone.

Goaltender
As the last line of defense, the goaltender takes shots from everyone. This player’s challenge is to keep the puck from entering his team’s goal. Goalies can use any piece of equipment or any part of his body (even the head) to protect his net. They are the only player on the ice allowed to cover up the puck to stop play.
