What happens when the ball hits a player's foot in hockey?

There are several different scenarios that may occur, depending on whose foot it hits, where the ball goes and where the foot-ball occurred; if there is no advantage to the foul then play continues: * If the ball touches a foot in open play (between the 23-metre-lines) the opposing team receives a free hit at the spot of the foul; if the opposing team regains the ball and develops play then the game continues. * If the ball touches the foot of an attacker within 14.63 metres of the baseline, a free hit is awarded to the defense. This hit can be taken anywhere up to 14.63 metres from th baseline in line with where the foul occurred; if it occurred in the circle, it may be taken anywhere within the circle. * If the ball touches the defender's foot within the 23-metre-area but outside the circle, the attack receives a free indirect hit at the spot of the foul; if the foul occurred within 5 metres of the circle, it must be taken back to that distance. * If the ball touches the foot of a defender inside the circle accidentally, a penalty corner is awarded; if the foot stopped the probable scoring of a goal, a penalty stroke should be awarded; if the foot was deliberate, the player should receive a yellow card. * If the ball touches the foot of a player with GKPs inside the circle, play on; if outside the circle, a penalty corner is awarded; if deliberately, a yellow card is given to the player.

How would you classify a composite hockey stick from a wood hockey stick?

A composite hockey stick is made from a synthetic material such as carbon fiber and is seen as lighter and to have more flex than a wood hockey stick. The flex of the stick is often rated on the stick and the amount of flex is a preference of the player. Flex can be seen as important because it causes a snapping of the stick during a snap or slap shot which causes the puck to release at a higher velocity. however often the more flex a stick may have the easier it may break.
