When you are on the ice is your shift. Generally, forwards (center, right wing and left wing) have 45-120 second shifts. When you step onto the ice is the start of your shift and when you step onto the bench is the end of your shift
A shift in hockey is the time spent on the ice by the player. It is usually measured along with his line mates. A shift usually lasts less than 60 seconds.
There are four positions in hockey. Center, Winger, Defenseman, and Goaltender. There are six players on the ice per shift though. The goalie remains on the ice if pulled, injured or replaced by the backup goalie.
"play" in hockey is more commonly referred to as a "shift." in hockey, a good shift is between 30-45 seconds long. to those that dont play the game it seems short, but it is actaully long because it is close to a dead sprint for the majority of that time. anything oer that time is a great advantage to the other team because of fatigue.- masta v
Quick background: a "shift" is one turn on the ice, usually the same group of player go together and there are 4 "lines"on a team. So, generally, you play for a shift then you're out for three. Hockey is an incredibly demanding sport. Hockey "shifts' are only 45-60 seconds. Which means, a player only plays for that long then needs to catch their breath for a couple minutes. Usually when you score you're at your shift anyway, it's a good time to stop...and hey, your line earned a break! Keep watching hockey, it's a great sport!
When the game of hockey was originally invented/played, the players used a rubber cube, then replaced by a spherical shaped ball by Teddington HC in its early creation of the modern game of Field Hockey.
A typical shift is about 30 seconds. Top time on the ice per game is usually around 25 minutes (barring OT)
