Hockey’s Origin

People can not give an exact answer when they are asked about hockey's origin. However, most people accept the saying that ice hockey stems from the United Kingdom. We could watch hockey game in Olympic Games in 1920. From then on, hockey developed very quickly


People can not give an exact answer when they are asked about hockey's origin. However, most people accept the saying that ice hockey stems from the United Kingdom. Later it came into North America. In the early days, people who lived in the England's military depot in Canada liked this sport very much. In McGill University, some students started the ice hockey game in 1870s. They made some related regulations and these regulations were called "McGill Regulation". According to this regulation, we use the present hockey rather than former gum-elastic hockey. In addition, every team has 9 members. In 1885, in Montreal, Canada, the first national hockey organization was established. It is The Amateur Hockey Association of Canada. 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.
In 1890s, this sport spread into America. Johns Hopkins University and Yale University played a famed hockey game in 1895. 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. Members of Canada and America all pertain to the league. It was expanded twice three years later. In 1910, NHL was set up officially.
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.
If we see hockey's history in Olympic Games, we will find that Canada and the Soviet Union are the strongest countries in the world. Among the 19 hockey games, Canada and the Soviet Union have won 14 times, which is very surprising. In the first four games, Canada won all these four champions. In fact, among the first seven Olympic Games, Canada got sax championships. But, in 1956, Canada did not get champion. 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. Then they won the hockey game in Winter Olympics in the next 10 games. 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. This means that they do not dominate the hockey game in the Olympic Games any longer. In 1998, Nagano Olympic Winter Games permitted the professional players to participate in the hockey game. Many giant stars participated in the Olympic Winter Games to play ice hockey. So hockey experienced a huge progress and development. Women's hockey was allowed in 1998. In Nagano Winter Olympics women attended the hockey game in the Olympic Games. 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. This is only a short presentation on hockey, and you can find more interesting things about hockey.
