Enforcer is a hockey player who should be able to fight on the ice. If "police" is uncertain stand on the ice during a fight he has no chance. Therefore, every enforcer was originally taught specialized hockey combat. Each fighter must be able this:
To stand Confidently on the ice.
Fighting in hockey form.
Quickly throw off the opponent's helmet.
To Apply precise and powerful shots from awkward positions.
With the advent of the financial limit and large suspensions for fighting, the team began to abandon Tagaev. They have been replaced by power players that will be useful in the game. The player needs to be able to spend quality power reception. It is desirable that he has not violated the rules.
Every enforcer during the game must observe the following mandatory rules:
Not to beat the opponent's stick. Before the fight each of the fighters have to throw it on the field.
Forbidden to attack an opponent that initially traumatized.
The Attack on the goalie is forbidden and will cause great anger in the opposing team.

In this case they are usually cast aside, so you do not stumble. Skating is very difficult to keep the balance in a Boxing stance. Tough guys usually grasping with one hand for the shirt of the opponent. Due to this, they're poised and in control. A fighter on the ice must be removed from the opponent's helmet. Best of all, if he can do it in one attempt. Otherwise the unit may damage the fist strong blow to the helmet or the glass of the opponent.
Tagaev, there is one very popular technique. It consists in the fact that one of the men grabbed Mike from behind, pulls her to the head of the other.

The opponent this time, as a rule, continues to fight a number of powerful strikes. The judges, seeing the beating, starting to step in and end the fight.

Tough guys, usually out on the field just before the fight and removed the rest of the game, eliminating the target. Power players for the game doing a large amount of force, but some of them do not participate in fights. In modern hockey valued hard players who make the allowed power moves in ice hockey, as the removal from the field often leads to a goal conceded. If necessary, power the player can join the battle and there he will feel comfortable. But this is not their main purpose. Among the power players often strikers that have a powerful physique.
