about

For those who grew up around hockey, it''s easy to understand a sentence like, He let loose a howitzer from the hash marks, roofing the puck past the stunned netminder. But for those who have no idea what that means, How to Speak Hockey provides a unique look into Canada''s unofficial third language. Even lifelong lovers of the game might just learn a thing or two: - Many hockey fans know about the five hole, but few know that there are seven holes in total - Before the humble rubber puck, people used strange round balls called road apples - Learn the strange and unique origins of common phrases including stood on his head and hat trick - Find out exactly what is meant when a player dipsy doodles through traffic and breaks the ice - In hockey, sometimes a hot dog is not just something you get at the concession stand - Fighting has always been a part of hockey, so it''s not surprising that there are so many words to describe it, from a word as innocent as dance to the biggest fight in hockey the bench-clearing brawl. For all those wannabe hockeyists or lifelong rink rats out there, game on!
