But one thing is certain: McGillians had a hand in developing the sport as we know it today. On March 3, 1875, the Victoria Skating Rink in downtown Montreal hosted the first organized indoor hockey game.

Because the Victoria Skating Rink was small, Creighton limited each team to nine members. Hockey has its origins in ancient Greece, Egypt, and Persia, and is usually played on grass with a stick and a ball.
