Best Answer

The game as we know it today has always been called hockey or Ice Hockey. The game probably derived from the Irish game of hurling, the English game of Field Hockey, the North American Indian game of Lacrosse and even the Spanish game of shinty. In fact an informal game of hockey, either on ice or on land, is often referred to in Canada as "shinny". Our modern game has incorporated aspects of all the games above.
