I been watching the H2 channel preview in Rogers right for the last 51 minutes while reading up in CDC and heard a funny interesting fact about face offs


Historical alignment

In the first organized ice hockey (see Amateur Hockey Association of Canada (AHAC)) rules, both centres faced the centre line of the ice rink, like the wingers do today. At that time, another forward position existed, the rover, who faced forward like centres did today, but a few feet away.

Historical naming

Faceoffs were first called "faces" of the puck or a "puck-off".

I want to bring back the Puck-Off term.

Also America Unearthed is pretty awesome

Not really Canuck related..

Puck-off already!

**RETIRED...**

"Have not those who disbelieve known that the heavens & the earth were joined together as one united piece, then We (Allah) parted them? And We have made from water every living thing. Will they not then believe?" (Qur'an 21:30)

        Sig too big, images removed. - SN

"Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” (David Rockefeller)

So interesting you had to post it twice?

Besides, everyone knows about the old rover position and puck-offs.

Yeah, I remember them times. Those were the good old days. Couldn't pass it forward neither, not like today with these high-falutin', helmet-wearin', ice dancin', NHLPA-havin' millionaire fairies too scared to skate with the puck and get tomahawked on the noggin'.

Milk was cheap too.

Lol this board is not for me. Too many people who think they know more than the next. I keep hoping to find positive commentary in different threads..

I detest threads that call out "look at me" without giving any inclination as to what they are about.
I love rock and roll, just put another dime in the juice box baby.

The game of hockey was more like rugby on ice at that point then it was hockey. It's an interesting read if you research the original rules of hockey. Players could not pass forward, I picture a V formation skating up the ice with lots of hitting.

Don't worry 'bout it. It happens to most everyone. You'll adjust. I found it interesting. I knew about the rover position, but didn't know about how they used to face the other way.
