In infield hockey, whoever scores the most goals wins. Ice hockey is played in three periods of 15 minutes each. It is played with a puck called a puck.
Each team comprises five players on the field and a goalie. If the game ends in a tie, it is decided in shootouts. The two most common infractions in ice hockey are offside and icing.
The first is when a player enters the attacking zone before the puck, while the second is when a team throws the puck from behind the midfield to the back of the court. It should be clarified that icing has some exceptions.
There are different types of penalties in ice hockey:
- Penalties, where the player who committed the foul is sent off (from two minutes to permanently).
- Minor penalties, where the offending player is sent off for two minutes.
- Significant penalties, where the player is sent off for five minutes.
- Misconduct, such as insulting the game officials.
