are you speaking of field hockey or ice hockey? If you are talking about field hockey . it really isn't popular at all here in the States. I played as a girl in school but there aren't any national leagues. It isn't shown on t.v. If you are talikng about ice hockey, it has been a minor sport here in the states . Back in the late 90's it looked like it could branch out but then came the strike in the NHL and ESPN, the best sports channel here, stopped airing gams , hockey took a back seat to all the other sports . It has it's die hard fans like me but I don't think it wil ever be real popular.
