a) A lot of people in Russia enjoy watching and playing ice hockey. We often think and say that it’s our national sport though in fact ice hockey was born in Montreal, Canada in 1877. That was the year when Canadian students at McGill University made the first seven rules for the game. Two years later, in 1879 the first organized team, the McGill University Hockey Club, was formed. Very soon the sport became popular all over Canada. By 1893 there were almost a hundred teams in Montreal alone.
b) By the beginning of the 20th century the game of ice hockey quickly spread to Great Britain and other European countries. In 1917 they founded the National Hockey League (NHL). Nowadays ice hockey is an Olympic sport and the most popular team sport played on ice.
c) Hockey is also the world’s fastest game. Players often skate 48 km an hour. They get tired very quickly. Often hockey players leave a game and other players come in. In hockey players use hockey sticks and a pluck. The colder it is, the better the pluck slides on the ice. That’s why players often put the pluck in the freezer before a game. In some games players use more than 30 plucks. The pluck moves faster than the players. Hockey players are heavy and plucks are not. Sometimes plucks go at 160 km an hour. As you see, hockey looks easy to play but it isn’t.
d) Hockey is a dangerous game. Today, players wear special clothes to protect their bodies. Goalkeepers wear special masks to protect their faces. A goalkeeper without a mask can break his nose or teeth. In the past there were many players without their front teeth.
e) People play hockey not only on ice fields. For example, there is street hockey for which you don’t need any ice. This type of hockey was also born in Canada and is now popular in many countries because you can play it all year and in lots of places: car parks, school yards, empty streets. You wear tennis shoes, not ice skates. And you can use a ball or a pluck. But the tactics and the rules are the same. Street hockey is especially popular with young people.
