meshing = net?

there are 2 referees on the ice and 2 linesman

referees call the penalties, like hooking, spearing, boarding...

for these penalties a player must leave the ice for 2 minutes. his team will then play "shorthanded," as in 5 against 4. he can return when the other team scores, or his 2 minutes are up, which ever is first.

sometimes there is a more serious penalty, called a major penalty, for which he will have to leave for 5 minutes. and he can not return until the 5 minutes are over, even if the other team scores.

the linesman call the line infractions, like offsides, icing, 2-line passes

for this, the play is just whistled dead and there is a faceoff


the referee's crease is usually where the refs go when they want to talk to each other or a player, and it is where he tells the off ice official what the penalty being called is. he can also go there to ask an off ice official for an instant review, usually on if the puck crossed the goal line or not

spearing is what it sounds like. taking your stick and jabbing it into someone. it is a 2 minute penalty.

no, icing is not a penalty, it just results in a faceoff in your own zone. (meaning near your net)

spearing sounds like something that one should be kicked out of the game for doing.

Spearing can happen at the most inconvenient times, often when you're about to regain the momentum that you had just lost. It's not always a bad thing, as things do get out of hand when no one is looking. Sometimes, we need to spear one another to get a feel for each other. It's really part of the fun of such a physical venture. The whistle usually blows anyway. Often a sign that things are getting too intense.

naw, hockey is a tough sport, there is also slashing, (taking your stick and whacking someone), high sticking (hitting someone in the face with your stick (if you draw blood then it is a 4 minute penatly)), cross checking (taking your stick and making it parallel to the groud and and knocking someone over from behind with it), roughing (punching someone), elbowing, holding....

these are all 2 minute penalties.

but, if there is somethkg really bad that results in a bad injury, you can get kicked out of the game

if you pull someone down when he has a clean break to the net, meaning there is no one between him and the goalie, than that is a penalty shot, the most exciting play in sports

the player gets the puck at center ice and he can take it on the goalie one on one, he gets one shot, if he scores its a goal, if not, there is a faceoff and the game continues
