    Abstract

    Studies on the behaviors of ice hockey players during a game have been done mostly by analyzing the game-sheet reports. This approach has provided information on the type and number of penalties and the number of goals and assists. In this study, the authors used this approach and also included data on the number of shots taken and body checks given. Eighty four games played at the Bantam level (14 to 15 years old) were analyzed from the videotapes and the game-sheet reports. The results indicated significant differences between the behaviors of forwards and defensemen on the number of shots on goal and the number of goals and assists obtained, but no significant differences on the total number of body checks given and the total number of penalties assessed. The results also showed that, in each team, nearly 46% of the aggressive penalties were accumulated by only 20% of the players on the team.
