Best Answer

Hockey was not "introduced to Canada", it was first invented, or played as a game, in Canada in the late 1800's. Several areas of Canada have laid claim to being the site of the first game but no one actually knows for certain. For the best information on the origins of the game,I would suggest you read a good hockey history like Mr. Stan Fischler's Hockey Chronicles or go to Wikipedia and read various articles on the history of the game.
