The "Original Six" refers to the teams that made up the NHL before the first major expansion in the 1960's. Actually, the term "Original Six" is somewhat misleading as it implies that the NHL was always made up of six teams prior to expansion in 1967. When the New York Americans folded at the end of… the 1941/42 season, it left the league with six teams and it remained that way until expansion. Prior to 1942, the NHL had varying numbers of teams as members, not just the so-called "Original Six". ( Full Answer )

First of all, it is not a squid. It is an octopus. And secondly, the octopus is NOT in ALL of hockey. It is used EXCLUSIVELY in connection with the Detroit Red Wings of the NHL.. It started during the 1952 Stanley Cup Playoffs. At that time there were only 6 teams, and to win the Stanley Cup requir…ed 8 playoff victories (two best of seven series). The owner of a local fish shop in Detroit threw an octopus onto the ice claiming that the 8 tentacles represented the 8 games that the Red Wings would win to get the Stanley Cup. The Wings won the Cup, and the tradition of using an Octopus to rally the Red Wings was born.. Now there are 30 teams in the NHL, and it takes 16 victories to win the Stanley Cup, but the original playoff symbolism remains. Which is why the octopus toss is rarely seen during the regular season (except for the last few games when the Playoffs are very near).. No team in the NHL has more fans attend AWAY games than the Detroit Red Wings, so an octopus may be seen in any city in which the Red Wings are competing. However, the throwing of ANY object onto the ice in ANY arena (including Joe Louis Arena - home of the Detroit Red Wings) is ALWAYS prohibited, and therefore runs the risk of getting kicked out of the game. This risk is obviously much lower at Joe Louis Arena where the behavior is not only tolerated, but (unofficially) encouraged, as long as certain rules are followed.. First of all, the octopus should be boiled prior to the game to prevent it from sticking to the ice, and to eliminate any residue from the outside of the octopus flying off of it as Al Sabotka swings it around over his head to fire up the crowd when he removes it from the ice. Secondly, NEVER thow it onto the ice while the game is being played. This will assuredly give the Red Wings a penalty for delay of game. The acceptable times for throwing an octopus onto the ice is right after the Red Wings score a goal, OR right after the singing of the National Anthem, OR at the conclusion of the game (although most fans can't wait that long).

I bet you didn't know this! You probably think that the original six were Montreal, Toronto, Boston, New York, Chicago and Detroit right? Wrong! Those teams hadn't been invented yet except for Montreal because they won the first Stanley cup. There were actually 5 teams in 1917. They were Montreal Ca…nadiens, Montreal Wanderers, Toronto Arenas, Ottawa Senators and Quebec Bulldogs. I am not joking. Quebec ran bankrupt and the Wanderers arena got burned down! So in a way, there were the original three, Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa. But to answer your question, in the late 20's, they had added on 7 teams which were; Montreal Maroons, Boston Bruins, Detroit Cougars which were the latest non-NHL team to win the Stanley cup, Chicago Black Hawks, New York Rangers, New York Americans and Pittsburgh Pirates. Then the great depression took place and alot of teams that you probably havn't heard of went bankrupt. ( Full Answer )

Ice Hockey It seems no one really knows the origin of the game of hockey. Most people agree though that the modern game of ice hockey developed in Canada and Northern Europe. Stan Fischler (1993) talks about a game similar to hockey (kolven) being popular in Holland in the 17th century. And in… the 1820's the same sport was known to be played in an England community of Bury Fen in the 1820's. Field hockey was a popular sport played over 500 years ago. In Hockey for Dummies (1997), John Davidson links the roots of ice hockey with field hockey which was played in Northern Europe - most likely France and Great Britain. In winter months, die hard enthusiasts were known to play field hockey on frozen ice ponds. Some history books say modern ice hockey originated in the mid-1850Â´s by British soldiers stationed in Canada. The first recorded game of ice hockey was organized by a McGill University student in Montreal on March 3, 1875, and was played by members of the McGill Football Club. Not long after, the first set of rules for this new sport were established by two McGill students, W.F. Robertson and R. F. Smith about 1879. The first hockey league was organized in Kingston, Ontario, in 1885, and it included four teams. The first game in the United States is believed to have been played in 1893. By the beginning of the 20th century the sport had spread to Great Britain and other parts of Europe. On November 22, 1917, in Montreal, the National Hockey League was formed. Originally composed only of a few Canadian teams, the NHL soon expanded to include teams from Boston, Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh, and New York. Today, the National Hockey League (NHL) is considered the highest professional form of ice hockey attainable. Ice Hockey was added to the Olympic Games in 1920, being one of the most popular events at the Winter Olympics. Youth and adults of both sexes now participate in this game. .

Last time i checked there was only the original 6, but i could bewrong 1. Boston Bruins 2. Montreal Canadians 3. Toronto Maple Leafs4. Detroit Red Wings 5 New York Rangers 6. Chicago Black hawks. Added by another user: "The Original six" is a term coined in 1967, when the NHL expandedfrom 6 teams …to 12, and refers to the six teams that comprised theleague from 1942 - 1967. The NHL was originally formed on November26, 1917 by the 1) Montreal Canadiens, 2) Montreal Wanderers, 3)Ottawa Senators and 4) Quebec Bulldogs. After theBulldogs announced they were unable to play during the inauguralseason due to financial issues the charter members granted atemporary franchise to the 5) Toronto Arena Company . Thisteam became the St. Patricks in 1919 and the MapleLeafs in 1926. The Wanderers folded later that year when theJubilee Arena in Montreal burned down. The Bulldogs became the Hamilton Tigers in 1920. In 1924 the NHL added the 6)Montreal Maroons and 7) Boston Bruins. In 1925 theTigers franchise was revoked due to a wildcat players strike in theleague finals. Their contracts were bought by the expansion 8)New York Americans. Since this involves a revocation, the NHLconsiders the Americans as a separate team from theBulldogs/Tigers. 1925 also saw the addition of the 9) PittsburghPirates (not the baseball team). If you go against the NHL'sofficial stance and view the Americans as a de facto relocationthat would give you the first 8 teams in the NHL. The New York Rangers were added in 1926, and the Detroit Cougars(later Red Wings) and Chicago Black Hawks (later Blackhawks) in1927. The Pirates (known for one year as the Quakers) folded in1931. The Senators (St. Louis Eagles for one year) folded in 1935and the Maroons in 1938. The Americans folded during WW II in 1942due to a lack of players caused by enlistment, which leaves us withthe so called "Original Six". ( Full Answer )

If you're talking about Ice Hockey.. Most believe that the game of ice hockey evolved from stick-and-ball games, played outdoors, and adapted to the icy conditions of Canada in the 19th century. The games of British soldiers and immigrants to Canada, influenced by stick-and-ballgames of First N…ations, evolved to become a game played on ice skates, often played with a puck, and played with sticks made by the Mi'kmaq of Nova Scotia. The name of hockey itself has no clear origin, though the first known mention of the word 'hockey' in English dates to 1799 in England. ( Full Answer )
