About This Quiz

Hockey is a popular winter sport with leagues all around the world, but no league is more popular than the National Hockey League, which features teams across the United States and Canada. As with any sports league, the NHL is guided by rules. How well do you know those rules, though? Could you pass a quiz that only true NHL fans can ace? Here's your chance to find out! 

For a league that started in 1917 with only four teams from Canada, the NHL sure has expanded over the years. Today, there are 31 teams that compete in the NHL each year, as every team tries to make it into the playoffs and win the Stanley Cup, the award given out to the champions of the league. 

Thanks to the rise of star players like Wayne Gretsky, the popularity of the sport has increased as well. After all, the NHL is one of the four major sports in North America, fighting for fans against leagues like the NFL and NBA. Luckily, the sport has carved out its place with die-hard supporters committed to seeing the games. 

If you're one of those fans, then here's an opportunity to see how much you really know about hockey and the rules that govern the game. Get started and see if you can ace it!
