Hockey is any of a family of sports in which two teams compete by trying to maneuver a ball, or a hard, round disc called a puck, into the opponent's net or goal, using a hockey stick.

The dominant version of hockey in a particular region tends to be known simply as hockey, other forms being more fully qualified.

The NHL rules are slightly different from those used in olympic hockey.
