A glimpse of a hockey player.
A good hockey player plays where the puck is. A great hockey player plays where the puck is going to be. Wayne Gretzky
A Fact about Hockey that most do not know:
The sport of modern hockey has its origins in Canada, but the game has roots even older than that.
Hockey, in the ice playing variation, began in Canada, but earlier versions of the game were played by the Arabs, Romans, Persians, and Greeks. The Irish used to play a game called Hurling, which is very much like field hockey. During the fifth to the fifteenth century, hockey like stick and ball games were played all throughout Europe. Just before the sixteenth century, Native Americans also played a game that was like hockey. It is believed that the term hockey is derived either from the Irish Hockie or the French Hoquet meaning a shepherds crook. The word was applied to the game during the eighteenth century but came into common use a century after that.
