Sejarah Ice Hockey di Kanada
Canada’s ice hockey was a sport that the European settlers invented by using parts of various other games. It was derived mainly from the various kinds of field hockey played all over Europe, especially in England, and from the lacrosse-like stick and ball game that was originated by masyarakat adat Mi'kmaq di provinsi Maritimes di Kanada. The term hockey itself came from the French word ‘hoquet’ which means a shepherd's stick, an object that was used in a Scottish game in the 18th century.
Semua pengaruh ini digabungkan untuk berkontribusi pada contemporary form of Canadian ice hockey, which was first played indoors in 1875 in Montreal in Canada . In Montreal itself annual ice hockey championships also originated in the 1880s and Piala Stanley, yang merupakan penghargaan trofi tertua dalam olahraga Amerika Utara, started to be awarded to top ice hockey teams. By the twentieth century professional ice hockey leagues had been formed, even in the United States. The most important of these that is a major professional league even today, a hundred years later, and the strongest and largest association for hockey in North America as well as the rest of the world, is Canada’s National Hockey League.

Most forms of Canadian Ice Hockey are played according to the rules devised by the National Hockey League or NHL. The game is played on a 200x85 feet rink that is shaped like a rectangle with round corners. There are three sections on the rink – the zona netral di tengah tempat permainan dimulai, dan zona menyerang dan bertahan on either sides of the neutral zone. There is a Kandang gawang berukuran 4x6 kaki dan sebuah gol terjadi ketika sebuah tembakan membersihkan garis gawang bergaris lebar di atas es di depan kandang gawang.
There are two teams on skates with hockey sticks with which to shoot the rubber puck into the goal cage or net of the opposing team. The keping is passed between the players of the different teams and each team’s job is not only to score a goal but also to prevent the opposing team from scoring a goal. The game consists of 3 periode dua puluh menit and at the end of the game, whichever team has scored the most goals wins, and if there is a draw then the game goes into overtime and the first team to score a goal during this extra time wins.
Setiap tim memiliki maksimal 20 pemain out of which only 6 can play on the ice at a time and the rest are substitutes who can replace the original six as and when required. Since the game can be quite brutal and violent because the players may stop the opposing players from scoring goals with physical force, each player including the goal keeper or tender has protective equipment and padding. Other than the goal tender who must remain in his position, the rest of the outfield players can move from their positions and move about the ice field as they choose to. Players can be penalised if trip their opponent with their stick, body check a player who doesn’t have the puck, fight, or cause serious injury to opposing players.
