Hockey sport History

We do not know the history of hockey. However, most people accept the saying that ice hockey stems from the United Kingdom. In 1920, hockey appeared in Olympic Games. So hockey became a popular sport in people's lives


We are not sure that we can offer a definite answer about ice hockey's history. However, most people accept the saying that ice hockey stems from the United Kingdom. Later it came into North America. At a very early age, hockey was very popular in the England's army service station in Canada. In McGill University, some students started the ice hockey game in 1870s. They made some related regulations and these regulations were called "McGill Regulation". In order to adjust to the regulation, now people replace gum-elastic ball with the hockey we use today. Moreover, it is formulated that there are 9 players per team. The Amateur Hockey Association of Canada was created in Montreal in 1885. It is the first nationwide hockey institution in the world. Then the institution formulated that a team was formed with 7 members. At the same year, National Hockey League was established in Lake Ontario. It is composed of four teams.
Hockey came into America in 1890s. In 1895, Johns Hopkins University and Yale University had a famous hockey match. Although hockey is a recreational project in Canada, America set up a first national and professional hockey league. This league is set in 1903 and its head office is in Houghton, Michigan. All the teams of Canada and America belong to the league. Three years later, its scale was enlarged twice. Finally, North American founded NHL formally in 1910.
Men's ice hockey was first put into Olympic Games in 1920. However, in Chuck Nicks Olympic Winter Games we first saw hockey game in 1924. In 1998, Women's hockey appeared in Nagano Olympic Winter Games.
Since hockey appeared in the Olympic Games, Canada and the Soviet Union played best in the hockey game. These two countries had 14 champions. Actually there are only 19 hockey matches in the history of Olympic Games. Canada got the first four championships in the Olympic Games. In fact, among the first seven Olympic Games, Canada got sax championships. Unfortunately, it was defeated in 1956. In 1952, they got their sixth champion, and it was their last hockey championship in Olympic Games. In 1956, the Soviet Union's hockey team first got the championship in the Cortina Winter Olympics. In next 10 Olympic Winter Games, they got 8 hockey gold medals. America got the gold medals twice in 1960 and 1980. These two Olympic Winter Games were held in their country. After the Albertville Winter Olympics in 1992, the Soviet Union broke up. That is to say, their dominant position on hockey game in the Winter Olympics disappeared. In 1998, Nagano Olympic Winter Games permitted the professional players to participate in the hockey game. It increased the level of the Winter Olympics' hockey. Women could participate in the hockey game in the Winter Olympics in 1998. That is Nagano Winter Olympics. This time, America got the champion and Canada was failed. That is to say, in the history of Women's hockey, the United States won the first gold medal in Nagano Olympic Winter Games. Now hockey is a very popular sport in the world, and many people love it.
