Bandypiter has been making a name for themselves in Ice hockey tournaments in the recent times. Our team is proud to boast of World Cup veterans as well as former players from the Russia national team. With players like this, we have managed to become one of the most formidable teams in ice hockey.
Ice hockey is a team sport played by the players on the ice in an ice rink. The players are provided with hockey sticks to shoot the puck into the opposing team’s net to score points. Most teams are made of six players including a goalkeeper. Ice hockey is very popular in Canada, some parts of Europe as well as the northern United States of America. In fact, it is even the national winter sport of Canada.
Playing ice hockey is not an easy task as it involves very strenuous movements. There have been instances where players have even gotten seriously injured as a result of playing ice hockey. The International Ice Hockey Federation has very strict rules that are enforced to reduce the number of injuries caused by unruly players on the ice. The Kontinental Hockey League is the most prestigious league in Russia and most of Eastern Europe as well. With more than seventy-four ice hockey federations over the world, it is safe to say that ice hockey is a very popular game.
The six players in each Ice hockey team have to pass through strict regulations before they can play on the ice. The players are not allowed to kick the puck towards the opponent’s goal or use their hands for the same purpose either. The Bandypiter players have years of training and have proved themselves again and again with their different wins at the tournaments. Watch us play, and you will soon be cheering for us at the next tournament!
