  • 3. 

    Goals can be scored from a faceoff.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In ice hockey, goals can indeed be scored from a faceoff. A faceoff occurs when the game is stopped and the puck is dropped between two opposing players. The players then try to gain control of the puck. If a player is able to quickly shoot the puck into the opposing team's net directly from the faceoff, it is considered a goal. This is a legitimate way to score in the game.

    Correct Answer
    B. Allowed but only to a players own stick.
    Explanation
    According to the given options, kicking the ball is allowed, but only to a player's own stick. This means that a player can use their foot to kick the ball, but they must make contact with their own stick immediately after kicking it. Kicking the ball directly without using the stick is not allowed.

    Correct Answer
    C. Incidental is allowed, but otherwise, not allowed
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that player to player contact is incidental allowed, but otherwise not allowed. This means that while some accidental or unintentional contact may occur during gameplay, deliberate or intentional contact between players is not permitted. The emphasis is on fair play and avoiding unnecessary physicality or aggression towards opponents.

    When a goalie makes a save, then can:

    • A.

      Freeze the puck and take a face-off

    • B.

    • D.

      A and B

    • E.

      A and C

    Correct Answer
    D. A and B
    Explanation
    When a goalie makes a save, they have the option to freeze the puck and take a face-off. This means that they can hold onto the puck and stop play, resulting in a face-off in their team's defensive zone. Additionally, they can pass the puck to a teammate, but only on their defensive half. This means that they are allowed to pass the puck to a teammate who is behind the blue line in their own defensive zone. Therefore, the correct answer is A and B.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The three most important penalties to call are:

    • A.

      Lifting the stick on face-offs, interference, and holding

    • B.

      Checking, high-sticking, and roughing

    • C.

      Stalling, trapping, or holding the ball

    • D.

      Intentionally displacing the goal

    Correct Answer
    B. Checking, high-sticking, and roughing
    Explanation
    The correct answer is checking, high-sticking, and roughing. These penalties are considered important in hockey because they involve actions that can potentially cause harm to players or disrupt the flow of the game. Checking refers to using physical force to impede an opponent's progress, high-sticking is when a player hits an opponent with their stick above the shoulders, and roughing involves excessive or unnecessary physical contact. Penalizing these actions helps maintain player safety and fair play on the ice.

    Any non-misconduct penalty is enforced with:

    • A.

      A two minute power play

    • B.

      A face-off

    • C.

      A penalty hit at the spot of the infraction

    • D.

      A stern scolding

    Correct Answer
    C. A penalty hit at the spot of the infraction
    Explanation
    When a non-misconduct penalty is enforced, the correct answer is "A penalty hit at the spot of the infraction." This means that the player who committed the infraction will be penalized by being hit or checked at the exact location where the infraction occurred. This penalty serves as a form of punishment and deterrent for the player to prevent them from repeating the same offense. It also helps maintain fairness in the game by ensuring that the penalty directly affects the player responsible for the infraction.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Teams:

    • A.

      Do not have any timeouts

    • B.

      Have one 30-second time-out per game

    • C.

      Have one 30-second time-out per half

    • D.

      Have two -30-second time-outs per half

    Correct Answer
    B. Have one 30-second time-out per game
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that teams have one 30-second time-out per game. This means that during the course of the entire game, a team is allowed to call for a time-out once, which lasts for 30 seconds. This time-out can be used strategically by the team to regroup, discuss tactics, or make necessary adjustments. It is a valuable opportunity for teams to pause the game and make important decisions.

    A high stick is

    • A.

      When a players backswing or follow-through goes above the waist

    • B.

      When a players backswing or follow-through goes above the waist, but only if other players are close

    • C.

      When a players backswing or follow-through goes above the shoulder

    • D.

      When a players backswing or follow-through goes above the shoulder, but only if other players are close

    Correct Answer
    A. When a players backswing or follow-through goes above the waist
    Explanation
    A high stick is when a player's backswing or follow-through goes above the waist. This means that if a player's stick goes higher than their waist during their swing, it is considered a high stick. This rule is in place to prevent players from potentially injuring others by swinging their stick too high.
