Sticks are made of wood or other material, such as aluminium or plastic. The stick must not have any projections and all edges must be bevelled. Adhesive non-fluorescent tape of any colour may be wrapped around the stick at any place. Sticks are prohibited from being curved more than 1.5cm.
The hockey stick may be no more than 63 inches long from the heel to the end of the shaft. A skater's stick may be no more than 12 ½ inches long from the heel to the end of the blade. The blade of a skater's stick must be between 2 and 3 inches wide at every point, with a curvature of no more than ½ inch, measured from a straight line drawn between the heel and the end of the blade. The goaltender's stick must be no more than 15½ inches long from the heel to the end of the blade, and the blade must be no more than 3 ½ inches wide except at the heel, where it must be no more than 4 ¼ inches wide.
Sticks may not exceed 56 inches in length. The blade is 1 foot 2 1/2 inches in length and 3 inches wide. The handle is one piece with a lamented blade attached to it. The blade of a goaltender's stick is 1 foot by 2 1/2 inches in length and 3 1/2 inches wide. The handle varies according to the netminder's height and reach.
The stick, held by the goaltender in their blocker hand, should remain flat on the ice. Keep notice of the lie on a new stick. A high lie will force a goaltender to play on their heels, offsetting balance, while a low lie places a goaltender lower to the ice, and may affect high saves.
To stick a landing is to land, and remain standing without requiring a step. A proper stick position is with legs bent, shoulders above hips, arms forward. Sticking consistantly takes regular practice.
