1 of 5,000 players will make it more than 5 years at the NHL level.
9 out of the 23 players are non-NHL'ers.
hockey was created in the great country of canada where they used to play just on ponds and without the pads on players you see today.
Only 1% of the kids who play hockey will ever play in the NHL.
I do not know the exact percentage, but there are variants. High school hockey in MN will have a much high percentage of players that go on to play college hockey than other states. I would estimate that about 5-10% of high school players in MN go on to play Div I or Div III hockey. That will probably be much lower for other states as there high school hockey programs are usually second rate to the midget teams.
about 5% will play D1 at the college level.
Triple A is a much more difficult level to play at, with players often getting drafted into junior and such. The skill, size and strength of individual players is greater than that of players in double A. It is the highest level of minor (that does not include junior) hockey that somebody can play at.
Ice hockey is played on an ice rink.
yes, hockey players do play with a hard ball. It is smooth depending on the brand e.g - kookaburra
there are alot of hockey teams that play in the minors
nothing...they play naked
they have minor league hockey and in the summer they play some basketball minor league also
if it was up to me, all kids would have to play hockey. no questions asked!
A minor power play is when the other team that you are playing has a minor penalty with is 2 min long.
You don't have to just play on ice,you can play street hockey,Toledo Ohio has a huge street hockey i play in and its real fun. and you can do field hockey,so there are many ways.
