What is the difference between professional hockey and olympic hockey?

There are a few differences between the two, most having to do with rules: * In Olympic hockey, the rink is longer and wider. * Goaltenders in the NHL are only allowed to play the puck behind the goal line within an octagonal shape marked by a visible line out from the back of the net. Olympic goaltenders can play the puck anywhere behind the net. * In the NHL when a player shoots the puck down the ice from his own half of the center line an opposing player must touch the puck first before icing is called. Olympic hockey uses "no touch" icing which means play is whistled dead as soon as the puck crosses the goal line. * If an Olympic player fights he is ejected from the game, whereas NHL players just serve a 5 minute penalty. These are just a few key examples, as naturally there are other differences. Basically, NHL play is more aggressive while Olympic hockey is more passive and positional.

Is American hockey the same as English hockey?

I'm sorry to say, I'm not sure what English hockey is like, but I can tell you the differences between the NHL and similar leagues (such as the AHL) and international hockey (as is played in the olympics) The primary three differences are: 1) An international hockey rink is wider than an NHL or AHL rink. 2) If the puck is "iced" (cleared down the ice from behind half way, to the area behind the net) in international play, it is immediately called when it crosses the line, while in the NHL, the players can race to the puck, if the team that iced it touches it first, the icing is not called. 3) There is a trapezoid behind the net in the NHL. If the goalie handles the puck behind the net, but outside of the trapezoid, there is a 2 minute penalty for delay of game. There is no such trapezoid in international hockey. These are the main differences between international hockey and the NHL. While this is not a direct answer, if you know whether or not English hockey is played by the same rules as Olympic hockey, this may answer your question.
