A broken stick is left on the ice because it's a penalty to use it, and a dropped, but still in-tact stick is sometimes left on the ice because picking it up will put its owner out of position so they wait for a good opportunity to grab it.
If a stick is broken it must be dropped immediately or the offending player is charged with a minor penalty. (This is to reduce or eliminate any potential injuries occurring from being hit, poked, stabbed or cut by the broken stick.)
The goaltender is the only player allowed to player with a broken stick.
In other circumstances, a player may find it easier to grab a fresh stick, or make a line change instead of spending time retrieving the dropped stick.

OLD hockey or Ice hockey is a team sport played on ice in which skaters use sticks to shoot a hard rubber hockey puck into their opponent's net to score points. In some countries, such as Canada, the United States and those of Europe like Sweden among others, it is known as "hockey"; the name "ice hockey" is used in countries where "hockey" generally refers to field hockey.
