You can never really say. Canada has their claim, the brits have their, if you count bandy the nordic countries and Russia have their claim, and the dutch have their claim with paintings to show something similiar to ice hockey (probably earlie kolven, but who knows...), and so on...
As with most sports, it evolved a little bit here and a little bit there. The first known entry about something simular to ice hockey is probably knattleikr:
One of few sports that claim to trace to an exact origin is basketball.
