By durbshockey | In Hockey Terms Explained | on April 2, 2017

We’re starting with a series of weekly posts to explain interesting, confusing or just plain familiar hockey terms.

First up we’re looking at the ’16 yard hit’ or the ’16’ for short.

The 16 yard hit is a free hit for the defense 16 yards (for those of us who live in the metric universe, that’s 14.63 meters) from the base line after an opposing player hits the ball over the base line or commits a foul within the shooting circle.
