The first governing body of the sport was the Amateur Hockey Association of Canada, formed on December 8, 1886 in Montreal. The five charter members were: Montreal Amateur Atheletic Assn., McGill University, Montreal Victorias, Ottawa Hockey Club, and Montreal Crystals. The first game was played on January 7, 1887 when the Crystals defeated McGill 3-1. Operating in northern Michigan from 1904 to 1906, the International Hockey League was the first professional league formed.

The formation of the National Hockey Association in 1910 in eastern Canada marked the end of 'mixed teams' of professionals and amateurs. The Pacific Coast Hockey Association commenced its league in 1911 for western Canada (the PCL included Seattle then other teams from the USA, and lasted 13 seasons). The NHA was replaced by the National Hockey League in 1917. The Stanley Cup was competed for by 'mixed teams' from 1894 to 1910, and then by professionals. From 1926 to 1967 it was awarded to the winner of the NHL playoffs, and then to the league champions. The World Hockey Association commenced in October 1972, but dissolved after the 1978-79 season when the NHL absorbed four of the teams.
