Correct answer:

### 45 Goals

Since a hat trick is three goals and the player has recorded fifteen of them, that is a total of 45 (15 x 3) goals.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) are critical parts of the game of hockey. Learning more about STEM can also open up amazing future career opportunities.

Correct answer:

0° Celsius

The freezing point of water is the temperature at which water changes phase from a liquid to a solid. To maintain the ice on a rink, the ice temperature must be at or below the freeezing point of 32° Fahrenheit / 0° Celsius. The ice on most NHL hockey rinks is typically between 22° and 25° Fahrenheit or -4° to -6° Celsius.

Correct answer:

660 KM

By multiplying the distance skated per game (5 miles / 8 KM) by the number of games (82), we can determine that a player will skate approximately 410 miles in a season.

Correct answer:

Since the hollow of the skate blade curves inward, it is a concave surface. NHL hockey players can select a variety of hollow depths depending on their skating style and personal preference. A shallow hollow allows for more speed and glide, while a deeper hollow creates greater grip or ‘bite’ on the ice.

Correct answer:

4.5 metres

The diameter of a circle is straight line going through the center of a circle connecting two points on the circumference . The radius of a circle is the distance from the center of the circle to the outside edge. If a circle has a diameter of 30 feet or 9 metres, then the radius is 15 feet or 4.5 metres.

Correct answer:

Since the goaltender saved 27 of 30 shots, that means that the goalie’s save percentage was 27 divided by 30 or 90%

Correct answer:

The angle that the blade makes contact with the shaft is called the lie. As evidenced in the image, the lie of a hockey stick is greater than 90 degrees and thus it forms an obtuse angle. Most hockey sticks have a lie of approximately 135 degrees.

Correct answer:

A goalie’s reaction time is measured by dividing the distance from which the shot is taken, by the speed of the shot. Since the second shot is taken from a closer distance than the first, the goalie’s reaction time would decrease.
