From small-town rinks to big-city neighbourhoods, that's where you'll find the heart and soul of the game. Kids' teams, junior teams, company teams, town teams, even prisoners' teams -- these group photos and action scenes from days gone by say something about being a hockey player.Check the rakish confidence of the 1895 Orillia Seven and the solemn dignity of the 1920 Asahi Athletic Club squad. Study the group pictures. Who do you imagine to be the best player on each team?

Matches such as this one, at Dawson, Yukon Territory, circa 1900, were likely the inspiration for mining entrepreneur Joe Boyle to assemble a hockey team that challenged for the Stanley Cup in 1905.


The Rebels were a loosely organized team that came about casually in 1890 when three sons of Lord Stanley of Preston got together with aides to the Governor General and parliamentary officials.



The Renfrew team defeated Vankleek Hill in 1907 to win the Ottawa Valley Hockey League championship and the Citizen Shield. Goalkeeper Bert Lindsay was the father of future Red Wings star Ted Lindsay.
