Best Answer

British solders stationed in Canada are attributed to creating the game of Ice Hockey by playing a version of Field Hockey. The story is that they were getting cold and needed something to do to alleviate boredom and keep them warm as well, so they started hitting rocks using sticks on the icy ground. They didn't play on skates at first, this was introduced much later and became what we now know as Ice Hockey.
