Hockey has grown from an outdoor pastime played on the frozen pond with little or no rules and limited equipment, to its present day form as a highly organized and extremely competitive sport contested at all levels of play and until now few changes have truly revolutionized the sport.
As a spectator sport the game has evolved to a point where there is little left to change from a purist standpoint, and while the debate continues over goalie pads and net sizes, rink dimensions, or defensive strategies, the fact is that many changes have already been made in an attempt to both speed up the game and to increase the scoring, as both have a direct correlation to increased overall fan appreciation and excitement.
What can be done to Make Hockey Fun Again? 3 on 3 is the answer. Having recently been implemented as the overtime format professionally, 3 on 3 has quickly became the most exciting part of hockey and the wave of the future. With 100,000’s of youth across North America playing 3 on 3, we are seeing the sport played with increased playmaking potential allowing for more scoring opportunities and a faster pace of play.
