Scorer point

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In various sports, the scorer point is points that a player receives from goals scored and assists given. The word comes from the sport of ice hockey , but is now also used in ball sports such as football and basketball .


Usually the goal scorer and the last two players who were on the ball or puck before the goal was scored receive a scorer point.

In football, however, a scorer point is only awarded for the direct submitting party. There are also scorer points for taking a penalty kick or direct free kick , provided that these lead to a goal.

There is a specialty in ice hockey. Since there are no formal own goals in this sport , the last player on the opposing team who touched the puck before the "own goal" receives a scorer point, even if he actually had no direct effect on the goal.
