A book by hockey historian J.W. (Bill) Fitsell, who puts to rest the longstanding debate over hockey's origin. How Hockey Happened tells the real story of the game's roots in a number of 19th century stick-ball games -- Native American gugahawat and European hurling, shinty, bandy, and field hockey, as well as North American shinny, ricket, and ice polo.
