    Until the 1960s, ice hockey was primarily a Canadian pastime. When hockey started being shown on TV, many people had never seen the sport that relies on cold weather and ice to be played. Now, it's one of the most exciting winter sports with ice hockey teams in many countries.

    Watch a hockey game on TV or in an arena. Follow how the game is played. See how the players move and skate. Watch how deftly they use their sticks to move a puck over the ice.
