Best Answer

Traditional Ice Hockey is most commonly played with 6 players on the ice at any time. The majority of the game is played with 5 skaters (3 forward and 2 defense) and a goaltender. In some situations such as delayed penalty calls, and towards the end of close games, the goaltender may be substituted to allow another skater from that team to join the play, and create a great goal scoring opportunity.
