Fun Fact
Submitted By Cheryl McNally on Mon 05 16, 22
The first organized indoor hockey game was played in Montreal in 1875

Versions of the game of hockey have been around for centuries, possibly originating in Europe as early as the Middle Ages. In the 19th century, British immigrants and soldiers brought these games to Canada. At the same time, First Nations people of the Maritimes had their own versions of ball games.

Many sources credit Windsor, Nova Scotia as inventing the modern game - according to early writings, King’s College students enjoyed spending their winters playing the game. King’s College, located in Halifax, is Canada’s oldest chartered university. Apparently, students took the Irish game of “Hurley” (a fast moving field game with a stick and ball) and moved it onto ice surfaces.
