Hockey is a sport that can be played on ice, on the street, or on an outdoor field.

Ice hockey is the most popular version of this sport in Canada, the United States, the Czech Republic, Latvia, and Slovakia.

While outdoor hockey games are played with a ball, ice hockey uses a round, flattened puck.

Hockey sticks and pucks are quintessential symbols of the game. Hockey sticks that professionals use are unique, specially designed to meet the preferences and duties of the individual player.

In fact, Zdeno Chara, the tallest National Hockey League (NHL) player to date, was given special permission to use a longer shaft than is usually allowed.

The goal tender's stick is also different from that of other players. The blade, or toe, is wider and it is set at a different angle. This angle is referred to as the lie of the stick.

Did you know? the Canadian Museum of History has the oldest known ice hockey stick. It was made of sugar maple wood during the mid-1830s. It may have been made by members of the Mi'kmaq, a Native American people, who were known to have been playing ice hockey for some time.

Today, hockey sticks are made out of other materials, such as aluminum, fiberglass, or carbon fiber. These modern sticks are lighter but less durable than their wooden predecessors.

In the early days, hockey pucks were also made of wood, and they were square instead of round.

Later, rubber balls were cut to create the flattened hockey puck. The word "puck" comes from a Scottish or Irish word meaning "to deliver a blow."
