Best Answer

The origins of professional hockey predate the invention of the automobile, as the first recorded game of Ice Hockey was played in March of 1876 in Montreal, Quebec; while the generally accepted invention of the modern automobile by Karl Benz occurred on or about 1885.

A race sponsored by the Chicago Times Herald, now considered the first American automobile race, was conducted on November 28, 1895.

The first professional hockey league in North America was established in northern Michigan (Sault Saint Marie) in 1904 by J.L. Gibson. Gibson wanted to have an all-professional league, but the existing hockey officials in Eastern Canada balked at the idea. The league lasted only three years.
