Constant action and excitement.
Hockey is the one sport that can offer non-stop action for nearly 20 minutes straight.
The beautiful thing about hockey is there is (essentially) no “out of bounds.” This means that unless a player commits a penalty, or a goal is scored, there is continuous, non-stop playing.
It takes a ridiculous amount of conditioning to be able to play continuously for that long.
The point of sports is to be entertaining and exciting, and in hockey, anything can happen at any given moment. It’s a sport you don’t want to look away from because in a split second, something amazing can happen
