Hockey's history

Ice Hockey started in Canada in the 19th century. In Europe there were similar sports. Before there was a puck people used a ball to play and then later they changed the ball to a puck. Two McGill university students made the first rules. The McGill university hockey club was formed and then it became a Canadian sport and it spread. The Governor General of Canada donated the stanly cup and was won by Montreal team. When ice hockey spread to Europe it became an Olympic sport and was played on summer.
