  1. Wrap around

    A wrap around in ice hockey is a manoeuver in which a player with the puck skates behind the opposing team's goal and attempts to score by sliding or shooting the puck into the opposite side of the net they skated around. The wrap around can be effective because it causes the goaltender to quickly slide from one side of the net to another, which allows the shooter the chance to sneak it by the goalie depending on how fast the goalie moves laterally.

    (also n. wraparound and v. shorthand wrap) 1. [techspeak] The action of a counter that starts over at zero or at minus infinity (see infinity) after its maximum value has been reached, and continues incrementing, either because it is programmed to do so or because of an overflow (as when a car's odometer starts over at 0). 2. To change phase gradually and continuously by maintaining a steady wake-sleep cycle somewhat longer than 24 hours, e.g., living six long (28-hour) days in a week (or, equivalently, sleeping at the rate of 10 microhertz).
