Thanks for all the answers. I believe this might be a question too difficult to answer. But we might conclude it's origin is either from a cold place in Europe-Russia or North America.
Or perhaps I should put in a Chinese theory in the context.
Ice hockey dates back to the Qing Dynasty in China. Emperor Chongzhen introduced ice hockey to the people to calm people down and give them some relaxing activity. This on the other hand led to massive uproaring due the imperial team beating the peasant team 13-2 in the first game. And with this failure on his hands, emperor Chongzhen took his own life and banned ice hockey in China for many years to come. And this is why ice hockey is not very popular in China, we are ashamed of our past.
