Evolution of Hockey
No major professional sport in North America produces more
confusion about its origins than ice hockey. The forerunner of hockey
could be any number of ball-and-stick games from countries all over the
world. The French, for instance, played a game with a curved shepherd's
hook than was known as a hoquet, possibly a predecessor to the word hockey.
Some historians consider ice hockey a descendent of an old
European pastime know as bandy. Bandy, like lacrosse, is a game traced
back to North American Indians. Each time a brave was hit he would say
"Hoghee!" which meant "Ouch!" Some claim the word
hockey came from that exclamation.
Others believe the game is an ice version of hurling, a
wild Irish game with loose rules and injuries galore. Hurling, dating
back centuries, was played with a brass ball, a stone, or a cow patty, and
members of the losing team were often executed.
Ice hockey may also be an offshoot of field hockey.
Some form of the sport was known in Athens at least 500 years B.C. In
1922, archeologists uncovered a relief than depicts six young men holding sticks
in what is unmistakably a hockey-like game. Two of the men are crouching
in what seems to be face-off positions.
In addition to its roots in ball-and-stick games, the
history of ice hockey is intertwined with the history of ice-skating.
Dating back 20 centuries, ice-skating probably started in the Scandinavian
countries as a by-product of skiing, which is even older. The first skates
were made from the shank or rib bone of elks, oxen, reindeer, and other animals
long before the discovery of iron.
Although the origins of ice hockey are uncertain, one verified fact is that
it was developed and popularized in Canada. An informal ice game called
shinny was played in Canada as recently as the 1830's. It was named shinny
because the players had a habit of hitting each other on the shins. Shinny
is the most direct ancestor of today's ice hockey.
As ice hockey gained popularity in Canada, universities
began to form teams. McGill University in Montreal developed the puck
along with many other facets of modern ice hockey. It is said that one day
in the late 1870's, a player, sick of chasing the rubber ball hundreds of yards
beyond the playing area, cut the ball into two flat surfaces; thus, the puck was
created. With teams and official rules, ice hockey was starting to shape
into the sport we know today. The rest, of course, is legendary.
