How to Speak Hockey

by David John | 01 October 2007
Category: Encyclopaedias
Synopsis
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!
