QUICK MY LITTLE BROTHER IS GOING TO HIS FIRST HOCKEY GAME IN UNDER TWO HOURS I KNOW YOU REALLY LIKE HOCKEY NOBODY IN MY FAMILY WATCHES IT CAN YOU HOOK ME UP WITH YOUTUBE VIDEO OF HOW TO WATCH IT

AHHH SO FUN!! I have no idea if I caught this in time because I just woke up, but!

Okay, rules are different for different leagues, but here’s a basic video that might at least get you jumpstarted.  Honestly, though, play moves really quickly and continuously, so for your first game, just have fun! The rules come later, haha. This video will give you a good idea of the most common rules, although the rules vary by league for how the calls are made.


If you want to know more about the NHL, I don’t have any other videos, but here’s a really long and detailed post that I find really helpful for reference.

….aaaand if you’re looking for a stream, you could look here. *shifty eyes*

HAVE FUN!!
