It was not just one single man who came up with the sport. When men from Europe came to North America they noticed that the natives were playing lacrosse which was very similar to their games back home and they used some of the principles of lacrosse in the creation of hockey. Another man who played a huge role in the creation of hockey was from Nova Scotia. His name was James Creighton and he brought all of his knowledge of ice hockey into Montreal, Canada where the first ever organized hockey game as we know it today was played. This man also decided that he wanted to try to play hockey indoors at the local ice skating rink, but he was scared that the ball would fly out of the rink and hurt somebody, so they took the cork bung from a beer barrel which was shaped like the hockey pucks we use today.
Throughout my entire playing career, I have had to balance an intense hockey schedule with an intense school schedule. With two such important, yet intense activities comes a magnitude of self discipline, and time management. I had to learn how to not only excel, but become efficient at my school work. Along with being physically capable, playing hockey at such a high level increased my mental capabilities by keeping my brain thinking during games and practices. Looking back at my last four years of high school, I have realized that if I were to go back and do it all over again, I would change nothing and do the same
Ice Hockey is one of the most entertaining sports you could see or play. I would only assume most people love at least one sport but there has been quite an issue on which sport is the best. Ice Hockey is debatably the best sport ever created because of its intensity of the sport, the amazing experience of playing at a competitive level, and Hockey is always changing. People who watch hockey, without knowing the rules of the game, usually can understand that the speed and intensity of the game is very high. On average, a normal hockey player at any level will spend about forty-five seconds on the ice.
Being smaller than everyone else, I knew I had to set my standards higher and work harder than everyone else to keep up. I became obsessed. There was always something about that crunch on the ice when I took that step into my cross-over, the speed of the game, the intensity, and the gift of being able to play alongside 20 of my brothers to achieve the common goal of doing something bigger than all of us. I opened that heavy entrance door for the ice rink and immediately felt that rush of eagerness to lace up the skates. With this in mind, I took a step onto that ice and my tryout debut was incredible.
Ice Hockey is the most popular, but there are also many different types of hockey. Roller hockey and floor hockey are also really popular in the summer and spring. There are many leagues for hockey, in the winter there are numerous leagues with various levels based on your skill. Coaches are good at advancing players to the next level, coaches have usually played the game themselves so they can provide players with a lot of hockey knowledge to make them better players. Being on a team of any type is special but being on a hockey team is even better.
During my years playing hockey as a kid, I experienced many stressful situations both first hand and observed through teammates and coaches. One occasion in particular stands out, mostly due to how I was able to influence it. I was playing goal for a junior hockey team in BC, and my goalie partner at the time was very intense and emotional person. Certain things that were seemingly insignificant to me and to the other teammates, he took personally and often let it affect his state of mind and even his performance at times. Things like, players shooting pucks into his net at then end of drills and players celebrating or cheering after scoring goals in practice would really get under his skin.

It was pouring cats and dogs when I arrived at Village Sports, the local hockey rink I play at. I arrived an hour early so I could warm up before the game started. I was wearing my team sweatshirt and warm up pants.The team we were playing was one of the best teams we played all year. So, as you can imagine , I was very nervous and shaking as if I had just chugged 8 cups of coffee. I was thinking about the game and was staying focused.
He had his team during the regular season there, but he also had other players for the extra off-season practice. He ran a very structured practice with lots of skill oriented drills. During the interview, I asked him several questions pertaining to sports psychology. During the interview, he stated he started playing hockey at the age of three.

Eric Brassard (Halifax) vs. Conor Garland (Moncton) – QMJHL In this week’s Feature Faceoff, Halifax goaltender Eric Brassard is going to try to do something only two other goaltenders have done this season, keep Conor Garland off the scoresheet. After playing 14 playoff games with the Halifax Mooseheads last season, Eric Brassard gained valuable experience and confidence heading into this season. For the first time in his career, Brassard has been given the number one job and has done remarkably well behind a much younger and far less potent offense this year. The team traded the face of the franchise, Timo Meier, to the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, effectively signaling that they were headed into a rebuild.
