Christmas Day Ice Hockey? On Dec 25, 1855, Soldiers of the Royal Canadian Rifles in Kingston clear ice from Lake Ontario and use field hockey sticks and lacrosse balls to play the first game of ice hockey!

There is proof that the Irish game of Hurling, a form of field hockey, was played on ice at King’s College in Windsor, Nova Scotia, in the early 1880s.
