    More notably there are far less players on the ice at one time. In an NHL game there are six players on the ice at the time, 5-center ice and one goal tender. In ice hockey the arena is much less crowded, and a less variety of skills than in footy. However due to the fact that the game takes place on ice there is much more skill and dexterity on ice that requires much more training. However, the actions done in hockey are quite repetitive, only navigating, passing, and shooting a puck with a hockey stick. However ice hockey seems to breed much more aggression than with footy. Players seem to be more aggressive with their opponents to gain control of the puck, and more so every player for themselves, when in the AFL fellow team mates seem to be more collectively supportive to their teammates.

    The sport of hockey has, for one reason or another, become an integral part of the Canadian identity. It is a cultural myth that Canadians are born with hockey sticks in their hands and a couple missing teeth. In fact, in 1994, hockey along with lacrosse was named the national sport of Canada. So it is no surprise that when the 1972 Summit Series between the USSR and Canada was set to be played, national identity was on the line. Therefore, this essay is going to analyze the iconic image that…

    In the National Hockey League (NHL), fighting is a culture that has been a part of the sport for over a century and deserves to be forever glorified due to the excitement it delivers on witnessing fans and players that love to drop the gloves, or also known as fighting.

The three of us would spend countless hours back there after school and on weekends throughout the…

    I recall the day so clearly, impatiently waiting in the doctor’s office. Nothing was wrong with me; I was supposed to be at the rink for hockey practice or so I thought.
