Early Minnesota Hockey

This is a collection of articles regarding the early growth of hockey in Minnesota.From it's outgrowth of Roller Polo to Ice polo to Ice Hockey in 1894. 

"Ice polo teams were formed in St. Paul as early as 1883. Frank Barron, an accomplished ice polo player, formulated the first set of rules. Six players formed a team with the following positions: goal, coverpoint, cover goal, first rush, second rush, and center. Later seven players formed a team, although by mutual agreement a game might be played with six players on a team. A ball and a short stick similar to a present day field hockey stick were used. On-side play was not enforced. Unlike earlier hockey which used sticks set in ice for goals, ice polo employed cages similar to, but smaller than soccer goals."

Here's what I've dug up regarding information on hockey from Wisconsin.

 

Apparently the History of the sport dates back to 1887 on the Schlitz Park Skating Rink(Outdoors) as a demonstration of Ice Polo.

Then in the 1890's the game was supposed to have been played when the Superior Club was to play  Duluth and Two Harbours clubs.

This is the earliest hockey reference I could find in Wisconsin from early 1893.

I've posted here some other dates from late 1896 and a few others up to 1899.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to get the results any of these games.I don't think much was recorded in the state until the 1910's.
