Ice Hockey - History

While the exact origins of ice hockey are unclear, it's widely accepted that the British are responsible for bringing hockey to North America. Soldiers stationed in Nova Scotia, Canada, played the earliest games.

In the 1870s, a group of college students at McGill University in Montreal were organizing games and had developed the first known set of hockey rules. In accordance with this new set of regulations, known as "McGill rules," a puck was substituted for a rubber ball, and the number of players on a team was set at nine.

In 1887, Montreal became the site for the first national hockey organization, when the Amateur Hockey Association of Canada was founded.

Although hockey was a national pastime in Canada, the United States was the first country to organize a professional league. Formed in 1904 the International Professional Hockey League, included teams and players from both Canada and the U.S. The league folded three years later, and in 1910, the National Hockey Association was formed. It led to the NHL being formed in 1917.
