Types of Hockey Players (Part 2)

6. The Competitor

This player is greatly competitive and is not shy of giving their opinion especially in the moment when they might get a lot of cards. Sometimes they get high temper and frustration coming out on the field and even occasionally shout at their own teammates. However, all comes out from the passion of winning.

7. The Trickster

This player will be the first one that spend hours practicing a new skill. No matter it’s spinning around in a circle, some fancy legs skill, freestyle tricks or scoring from an impossible angle, they are the first to know.

8. The Speedster 

Those players that puts on their roller skates and as soon as they change gears, everyone else is following.  They are wingers (or attacking mids) who can be very dangerous being the number 1 at defending short corners.

9. The Hockey Nerd

10. The Injured One

This person always has some kind of injury, from nasty ones like broken fingers, ankle injuries from stepping on the ball, to sprains, strains, bad back, sore knees, muscle cramps, and the like.

11. The Headless player

This type of player runs all over the field without having a clue about what they should do and often end up with unnecessary running. It’s just tiring.

12. The Rock

This is the super tough player, who is physically or mentally strong and difficult to get past. They are often a defender, goalkeeper or post player who performs unbelievable tackles or saves on corners.

13. The Leader

This is usually the captain who inspires others by encouraging talk in the huddle as well as the way they puts their body on the line for their team on the field. The leader plays with 100% energy, leaving nothing left in the tank.
