Victoria Skating Rink
Montreal, Québec, Canada. Built in 1862. Closed 1937. On 3rd March 1875 the rink hosted the first ever organized hockey match - the game was played on a confined area called a rink with a size (202 feet by 85 feet), which basically defined the game as we know it today. The game was pre-announced to the general public and played between two uniformed and identified teams, under a pre-written set of rules, with a recorded score. The game was played with a wooden puck, the first time such was used instead of a lacrosse ball. The IIHF have officially acknowledgement the Victoria Skating Rink in Montreal as the birthplace of organized ice hockey. The site of the rink was between the Stanley and Drummond streets in Montreal and the IIHF hope to see a historical site marker to be placed on the site.
