Hockey puck
A puck is a vulcanized, hard rubber disk used in ice hockey, one inch thick (25.4 mm) and 3 inches in diameter (76.2 mm), and weighing between 5.5 to 6 oz (156-170 g). It is frozen a few hours before the game to prevent bouncing. Pucks can reach speed of 100 mph (160 km/h) when hit by players' sticks, and spectators at hockey games are occasionally injured. On March 18, 2002, a thirteen year old girl, Brittany Cecil, was killed by a hockey puck at a Columbus Blue Jackets game.

Ice hockey evolved from field hockey played on ice surfaces in Canada. The early players found that the rubber ball used in field hockey was far too active on the hard ice surface, so they cut off the top and bottom of the ball to form the hockey puck.
