Ice-Hockey in Wooster, Ohio 1872

Recommended Posts

Well it seems as though indoor Ice-Hockey was played in the States earlier than I thought...
 
In the first article it mentions that Shinny was played on skates at the Wooster skating rink in 1872 and in the second they talk about how Wooster will be having a Skating rink for the following season of 1871-1872.

Very nice, I live an hour West of there, there is still a rink in town, I always thought it was kind of a fluky thing that they have an ice skating rink in Wooster where I used to go and even played in a pick up league. Cool to know that Hockey has a rich history there, thank you.

I found a couple more reference's to indoor Ice-Hockey in the New York area.

The first dated Thursday, March 10, 1870 out of the New York World newspaper.

I've managed to dig up this early clipping and results of Indoor Lacrosse played on Skates in New York from 1871 pre-dating the Montreal game by 4 years.
