How are points scored in hockey?

AnswerYou do not score points in hockey. Each team's score is the number of goals they have been awarded during the game. In field hockey, 'points' are given when you receive a penalty card. Green is worth 1 point, yellow is worth anywhere from 3 to 6 depending, and reds are 12 points. Accumulating 12 points means you get an automatic suspension.Ice hockey does not have an equivalent system; indoor hockey assumably does, based on the same one as field hockey.
