Hockey Talk

Back Check - To hinder an opponent heading toward and into the defending zone.

Blue Lines - The pair of one-foot wide blue lines which extend across the ice at a distance of 64 feet from each goal. These lines break up the ice into attacking, neutral and defending zones.

Body Check - Use of the body on an opponent. It is legal when the opponent has possession of the puck or was the last player to have touched it.

Butt-Ending - To hit an opponent with the end of the stick farthest from the blade. It is illegal and calls for a penalty.

Crease - Area directly in front of the goaltender. It is four feet wide and eight feet long and marked off by red lines. Offensive players who do not have possession of the puck may not enter.

Deke - To fake an opponent out of position.

Face Off - The dropping of the puck between one player from each team to start or resume play.

Forecheck - To check an opponent in his end of the rink, preventing an offensive rush.

Freezing the puck - To hold the puck against the boards with either the stick or skate to get a stoppage of play.

Screened Shot - Goaltender's view is blocked by players between he and the shooter.
