Yes. A hockey goalie can get the same penalties as a skater gets.
Yes, you should use curved hockey stick as it makes passing, shooting, and stick handling better. There are two types of curves(right and left) and you should chose the stick which corresponds with the way you shoot. If this is your first hockey stick and you don't know which way you shoot yet, then a stick with a non-curved blade will do short-term.
The goalie stick is different from all the other regular hockey sticks simply because it is intended to be used as a blocking tool by the goalie. Its hard to block a puck with a skinny stick, the wide stick is just intended to help the goalie out.
A goalie which holds his blocker and hockey stick on the left side and his glove (trapper) on the right side is known as a Full Right goalie. The stick that the goalies hold in the left hand is a full right goalie stick.
No, no player but the goalie can use a goalie stick. A player can knock the stick in the goalies direction that's about it. And a player can never hold more then one stick.
No throwing your stick will result in a penalty.
A curved stick is more accurate, because the puck rolls off the stick easier.
Player-Skates, Shin pads, can, socks, shoulder pads, hockey pants, elbow pads, jersey, helmet, gloves, stick. Some people also wear visor or cage on their helmets by choice or by league rules. Some also where a neck guard, after a guy in the NHL (cant rmmbr his name) got his throat cut open by a skate (he did live). Goalie-Goalie skates (most goalies wear these, but in pond hockey, shinny hockey, or fun hockey you will find some that wear regular skates), goalie pads, socks, goalie can, hockey pants (goalie type), monkey suite (also known as a chest protector or other names), jersey, gloves (one blocker, one catcher), goalie helmet. Some goalies also wear a goalie neck guard, which is a curved plastic shield that hangs in front of their neck from their helmet.
curved ones are better for shooting high!
Hockey is a game played with a stick curved at one end.
"Stick side" is relative to the goalie. If a shot misses the net to the side of the goal that the goalie holds his stick, it is wide stick side. "Just wide" means missing by a small amount.
Three skills in hockey are skating, passing, and stick handling. Shooting and goalie skills are a couple more skills in hockey.
someone found a curved stick in their backyard and then when they hit a rock they thought it was cool and called it hockey
there is no minimum length for a goalie's stick. I am a 1st grade goalie that plays against OTHER FIRST GRADERS (EDITED).
you need Helmet,Stick, Chest protector, Catcher, Blocker, goalie Girdle, leg Pads, and skates
The first hockey stick was invented in 1840.
Roller Blades Street goalie pads (make sure you have hockey sucks underneath) Hockey Pants and Can Hockey Chest Chear or "Monkey" Suit Gloves (Catcher & Blocker) Goalie Stick Jersey Mask (Goalie) That is all the standard items. Others that are optional and worn by some goalie include neck guards.
Stan Mikita, the Hall of Fame Blackhawk; is believed to have been the first to use the curved blade in gameplay. Mikita, would form his blade to the desired curve by jamming in uder the lockerroom door.
Helmet,Gloves,Shoulder pads, elbow pads, hockey pants, shin gaurds, skates, stick, puck, jersey, and hockey socks For field hockey you only need shinguards, mouthguard, a stick and a uniform, unless you want to be a goalie.
Tradition has it that the curved hockey stick was discovered accidentally by Stan Mikita and Bobby Hull of the Chicago Blackhawks back in the 1960's. One of them , I believe it was Mikita, accidentally caught his stick blade in the one of the doors in the boards, cracking and bending it, but not breaking it all the way off. When one of them took a shot with the bent stick they were amazed by what the puck did in its flight. They soon perfected a method of curving their sticks for game use and soon the curved blades were used all over the league.
Well they need a variety of equipment. First they need goalie skates and goalie pants. Also they need special type of pads to cover their legs, called goalie leg pads. A few other things are a goaltender chest protector, goaltender catch glove, blocker, goalie helmet, a goalie stick, and usually a cup.
the first wooden hockey stick was made of wood. The wood was elm,Hickory,and smoked wood for the hockey stick............
Depends what type of hockey you're playing. Minimum for ice hockey: Shoulder pads, gloves, shin guards, elbow pads, a helmet, breezers, hockey socks (to cover shin guards) ice skates, compression shorts that will hold a cup or a jockstrap and a cup, a hockey stick, ice hockey skates For roller, all of the same except: No shoulder pads, roller hockey pants and an inline girdle instead of breezers, no hockey socks, roller hockey skates instead of ice hockey skates For ice hockey goalie: Goalie pants, a goalie groin protector and cup, a monkey suit, leg pads, a goalie helmet with a throat protector (preferably), goalie ice hockey skates, a goalies glove, a blocker, and a goalies stick For roller hockey goalie: Same as ice hockey goalie except roller hockey goalie skates For ice hockey: An ice rink with nets on both sides of the rink and a puck For roller hockey: A roller rink with nets on both sides of the rink and a roller puck (yes, they are different from ice picks. They're made to reduce friction and slide better on floors.) For street hockey: Some sort of net, a ball or puck, and a stick I think I covered a good portion of it. If I missed anything, I apologize. It's a great sport, have fun!
