Best Answer

Ice Hockey is derived from British Field Hockey, with perhaps a touch of the first nations game of Lacrosse included in the mix.

The first recorded games of ice hockey occurred in the 1850s and the very first game is said to have been played in Kingston, Ontario, by British soldiers. There are, however, references to a game being played on ice with a ball in Canada as early as 1810.
