Glossary: The Slot
The slot is located directly in front of the goaltender between the two faceoff circles on each side. If you think of the definition of slot as a narrow passage, you can see why the small area between the two faceoff circles is called the slot. The deep slot refers to the area at the top of the circles—furthest from the goaltender—where players might hover waiting for the chance to move towards the net and score.
See it in action: Check out Detroit Red Wings player, Pavel Datsyuk, fake out opponents and move into the slot to make a spectacular goal.
