These ice hockey terms will help you if you want to talk ice hockey with some intelligence and easily join a hockey conversation. You can listen to some hockey songs while you appreciate these hockey terms.

These terms are supplementary to the hockey glossary which is a more basic resource. These terms are used by ice hockey insiders such as players, coaches and TV analysts.

Checker: A checker is a hockey player whose primary purpose on the ice is to be a physical presence. He may be assigned a defensive role, to stop the other team's offense, or may be assigned more of an instigator role, generally causing havoc. Scoring is more of a bonus from a checker, and a checker typically needs to be high energy. A checker can be more susceptible to taking hockey penalties because of their temperament and role.

Checking line: A team's checking line consists of three checkers on a forward line who employed against the other teams top scoring line. Their objective is stop the other team from scoring

Defensive Defense-man: A defensive defense-man specializes in shutting down the other team's attack and doesn't spend much time generating offense for his own team.

Offensive Defense-man: An offensive defense-man is a defense-man who actually spends a good portion of his ice time when possible generating offense for his own team.

Goal Suck: A goal suck is a player who doesn't spend much time on defense, and instead primarily waits near the opposing team's zone for a quick scoring opportunity on the opposing hockey net.

Hip Check: A hip check is a specific type of body check in which the defending player bends his body and swings his hips into the offensive player to generate the impact. The hit must be kept above the knees to be considered legal.

Left Handed Shot: A left handed shot is a shot taken with the right hand at the top of the stick, and the left hand farther down. It's also a term to denote a player who shoots in this fashion, "he's a left handed shot."

Right Handed Shot: Is a hockey term that describes the other way a player a player can shot. A right handed shot is a shot taken with the left hand at the top of the stick and the right hand farther down the stick. It can also be used as a term for a player who shoots this way, "He's a right handed shot."

Natural Scorer: A natural scorer is a hockey player who displays a strong, near instinctual ability to get the puck past the goalie with a combination of shooting skills, stick handling skills, timing and play reading.

Skill Player: Is a player who has developed a special skill such as a power play specialist or penalty killer. An offensive defense-man can also be considered a skill player as he has developed the ability to rush the puck out of his own zone and contribute in the offensive zone.

Sieve: This may seem like an unusual hockey term but it is actually used as a term for a hockey goalie who has allowed many goals, typically in a short amount of time and typically goals that could have been prevented.

Change on the Fly: This refers to a switch of player/players on the ice during the play rather than a change during a stoppage of play. A player from the players’ bench replaces the player leaving the ice.

Shoulder Check: A shoulder check is a specific type of body check in which the player uses his shoulder and arm to deliver the impact.

Sucker Punch: A sucker punch is when one player suddenly hits a player from the opposing team without giving warning and dropping his gloves in warning and preparation in a traditional manner for ice hockey fights.

Trap: A trap, or a neutral zone trap, is a defensive style of hockey in which one team attempts to keep the other team from advancing past the neutral zone. This is accomplished by stuffing the neutral zone with your players instead of falling back into the defensive zone.

Break out: This refers to the defensive team coming out of their zone. Teams generally have a few different types of breakouts they will deploy depending on the team they are playing, the score and other strategic reasons.

2 on 1: Refers to two players advancing against one. Thus having an advantage to of an extra man to try and set up a scoring chance against the hockey goalie who is in the hockey net behind the one defender.

With these hockey terms our hockey glossary, hockey trivia and NHL Trivia you’re well equipped to join in any ice hockey conversation and sound like an old pro.
