Some sources date the invention as early as 1872. James Creighton made a puck in 1875. Vulcanized rubber was invented by Goodyear in 1839, but was not used for puck construction until the 1880s.

the hockey puck is made round like a ball because it wouldn't be able to move if it was like a ice hockey puck because in ice hockey it can glide in filed hockey you need to be able to roll it around easyily

Face offs were first called "faces" of the puck or a " puck-off."
