Ice Hockey Positions Diagram
Ice hockey game is quite specific. The ice hockey players use the ice hockey rink to play this game on. Ice hockey is a competing sport and it is very popular nowadays. The ice hockey rink is a rectangular with corners (rounded), being surrounded by a wall of one-meter high. This wall is “the boards” and they protect the ice hockey fans from getting injured by the ice hockey puck during the game.
There are different laws about the ice hockey rink dimensions. Most of the North American players follow these specifications for the rinks: 61 metres by 26 metres with a corner radius of 8,5 metres. The distance from the nearest goal line to the end boards is always 3,4 metres. The NHL attacking zones are marked with the blue lines of 15 metres apart and 20 metres from the goal line.
The “center line” is the line, which meant to divide the ice hockey rink in two halves. It is used for judging the team players. There are also 2 “blue lines”, dividing the ice hockey rink into 3 parts (or so-called “zones”). These 2 lines are used for judging in case any of the players is offside.
There is a thin red line called “goal line” near each end of the rink. This “goal line” is used for judging the goals as well as the “icing calls”. There are also 9 “faceoff spots” on each of the ice hockey rinks as well as the “faceoff circles” around the centre of each ice hockey rink. Watching the game of ice hockey, you can also notice the hash marks painted on the ice near the “end zone faceoff spots”. The “circles” as well as “hash marks” are there to show where the ice hockey players can position themselves during a so-called “faceoff”. Usually all of the other faceoff spots and circles are coloured in red colour. Each spot consists of a circle of 60 centimetres in diameter with an outline of 5 centimetres thick.p>There are also other rules about the ice hockey rink, including the rules about its dimensions. In case you want to draw some ice hockey rink diagram, then you have to take all of the information, mentioned above, into consideration. Knowing all of the correct dimensions, you always have a chance to create your own ice hockey rink diagram, drawing it using the right software for making such diagrams.
One of the best applications for generating such sport games fields, including the ice hockey rink diagrams, is ConceptDraw DIAGRAM software. This ConceptDraw DIAGRAM application allows any of its users to make their own good looking drawings, so they looks professional and smart. Having all of the necessary tools for creating what you need, you will find using ConceptDraw DIAGRAM a very pleasant thing as this software allows you to concentrate on the fun and entertaining process of drawing instead of on the dimensions of the ice hockey rink. You can always find the needed lines and other design elements in the solutions, provided by CS Odessa team for all of the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users, and all of these necessary design elements are in the appropriate stencil libraries in the mentioned solutions. The solutions themselves can be found both on this site, or in ConceptDraw STORE application. ConceptDraw STORE application is another product of CS Odessa company, developed for the purpose of supporting ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users in their drawings, providing templates and samples of pre-made drawings.
To be able to meet all of the ice hockey laws and rules, we recommend all of our customers to, first of all, read through all of the ice hockey rink terms, lines, zones, etc., so they can apply this knowledge to their drawings. Secondly, all of the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM as well as ConceptDraw STORE users need to get the solutions called “Ice Hockey”, so they can find the needed libraries and so the design symbols. To “get” this and other solutions means to “download” them either from this site, or from ConceptDraw STORE.
In “Ice Hockey” solution there are 2 stencil libraries available for all of the ConceptDraw DIAGRAM users, and they are "Ice Hockey Rinks" and "Ice Hockey Positions" ones. These libraries will allow you to make an ice-hockey-related drawing in only couple of hours or even minutes having a great looking result. In order to make your diagram mature enough, we recommend you follow the next simple steps for making your ice hockey rink plan: drop a rink object to your document from the "Ice Hockey Rinks" library and so all positions object you need from the "Ice Hockey Positions" library (or from “Ice Hockey Rinks" one) to your document and place these positions on the rink according to your drawing idea. Add arrows or text labels if needed and correct it the way you want it to be.
