A well-worn hockey stick gets ready to strike a black puck on white ice. Athletes who want to play hockey will need appropriate equipment in order to safely and effectively play.
A black hockey puck rests against a wooden hockey stick wrapped in white tape. Both stick and puck are photographed on white ice in a darkened hockey arena. In the background, a red net is visible.
Ice hockey, street hockey, and field hockey are variants of the same game played with a curved stick and a puck or ball. Links to hockey equipment suppliers are included on the page.
