If a hockey player receives a major penalty how long does he have to sit in the penalty box?

It all depends on the penalty. In minor hockey If a player receives a 5 minute major, they are automatically ejected from the game, and someone else will serve that 5 minutes. You can get a M21 which is a 10 minute penalty for harassment of the official. So a major penalty could be 5 minutes or it could be 10. -David

How does hockey work?

There are many rules, systems, and facets involved in the game of hockey. Here are some of the basics regarding how hockey is played. The two teams are allowed to have six players on the ice, including the goaltender, three forwards (forecheckers), and two defensemen. There are three periods of twenty minutes in which time the players attempt to get the puck past the opponent's goaltender and into the net. Should a player commit an infraction, he is assessed a penalty for a period of either two minutes (minor penalty), four minutes (double minor), or five minutes (major). During that time, the offending team is forced to play for the duration of the penalty a man down. Whoever has more goals at the end of the game wins. I encourage you to look further into the rules and nature of the game, seeing as it is a wonderful sport.
