  1. Tiny Thompson of the Boston Bruins has the Record for most saves in an NHL Playoff game with 121 in a Semi-final against the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1933 when Ken Doraty of Stittsville, Ontario put one by Thompson in the 6th Overtime. In fact I was raised in Stittsville as a kid and remember a street sign name after me right behind our House named Doraty Lane. This is the original wtrie up on it including the box score.
  2. The West Park Ice Palace AKA the Quaker City Rink opened in December of 1897 on 52nd and Jefferson streets. A Philadelphia game from December 12, 1900, between home team Quaker City Hockey Club and the Princeton University team. Game finished 6-0 in favor of the Quaker City hockey clubbers. The arena burned down later the same season, in one of the earlier months of 1901.
  3. A few excerpts regarding Ice-Hockey at Round Hill I found from 1823. "Round Hill School, founded in 1823, in Northampton, Massachusetts, was the first prep school to introduce physical education into the curriculum. Under its gymnastics instructor—the first in a secondary school in the United States—Charles Beck, the school introduced such pastimes as horseback riding, gymnastics, bathing, dancing as prescribed recreations. A passel of other sports soon flourished at the school, including team sports like early forms of baseball and football, plus cross-country running, swimming, wrestling, and boxing. Winter sports included hockey, sledding, and ice skating." [Hidden Content] "In October, 1823, I was sent to the famous school at Round Hill, Northampton, then lately opened by Messrs. Cogswell and Bancroft. The grounds covered perhaps a hundred acres, with fine woodland and beautiful views of the Connecticut valley and of Mt. Holyoke and Mt. Tom. Mr. Cogswell was a learned man and a man of the world, and to him was largely due the breadth and liberality of the school, and its great success. The teaching was of no meagre kind, for Germany, Italy, France, and Spain each gave us of its best. But it was the pleasant and friendly relations of Mr. Cogswell and his masters with the boys, and the gymnastic and out-of-door education, which made Round Hill peculiar. The boys were taught to ride, had skating and swimming in their seasons, and wrestling, baseball, and football" [Hidden Content],+1823,+i+was+sent+to+the+famous+school&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjF29Xm6pbqAhVphXIEHRNiCrUQ6AEICDAA#v=onepage&q&f=false GYMNASTICS AT ROUND HILL, SCHOOL IN 1825. "I am greatly indebted to the venerable Dr. George C. Shattuck, of Boston, who was a pupil at Round Hill, for the following account of the physical training pursued there." "Dr. Beck, the teacher of Latin, afterward the professor of Latin in Harvard University, was the teacher of gymnastics. A large piece of ground was devoted to the purpose and furnished with all the apparatus used in the German gymnasia. The whole school was divided into classes, and each class had an hour three times a week for instruction by Dr. Beck. At the same time there were a dozen riding horses and classes for riding three times a week. Gardens were assigned the boys, in which they raised plants and vegetables. A piece of land was set apart for building huts. Baseball, hockey, and foot-ball were the games. I remember playing in a match game at the time of the Presidential election in which Adams and Jackson were candidates. The Jackson boys beat. You notice how much was done for physical training. I remember Mr. Edward Everett speaking at an annual exhibition and telling us how much better a school, how much greater advantages we enjoyed than Mr. Cogswell and himself had at Exeter. Though the school had only an existence of twenty years or less, and failed from want of pecuniary support, I believe that its influence has survived, and a great stimulus was given by it to the cause of education. Developing the bodily powers and strengthening the constitution were there first recognized as of great importance in the education of boys. The boys were very healthy. I only recall one death, from typhoid fever." Circulars of Information of the Bureau of Education
  4. This was written in the 1859. "In 1658 Schout or Sheriff Nicasius D'Sille complains to the court of Burgomasters of the dogs making dangerous attacks upon him in his night rounds, and moreover that there was much "hallooing of the Indians in the streets and cuttings of ' hockies' by the boys, all which, being against good order, should be remedied." Mr. Valentine considers the Dutch term "hockies" untranslatable "although tradition has handed down a similar term among truant boys in some of the villages on the Hudson River." We presume it is our old school boy phrase "playing hookey," which survives to this day in Manhattan." The Literary World
  5. Perhaps the oldest image of Ice-Hockey from the 1700's in Williamsburg Virginia. [Hidden Content]
  6. I think this was recorded in 1777-1778.At the time the British possessed Philadelphia, in the winter of '77 and '78, the woods were so freely taken for the use of the army, that it was deemed most politic in the agent to cut them down and sell them. This was the business of one Adam Poth, a German of much self-consequence, well known to the city lads as a vigilant frustrater of many of their schemes to cut saplings, shinny-clubs, &c., in his woody domains.
