Title
Manhood, Rivalry, and the Creation of a Canadian 'Hockey World': Media Coverage of Early Stanley Cup Hockey Challenges, 1894-1907
Abstract
An examination of English-language newspaper narratives and telegraph reconstructions of high-level amateur and professional hockey in Canada during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The author examines the coverage of Stanley Cup "challenge" games and championship series by fifteen English Canadian newspaper between 1894 and 1907, including the Montreal Star and Montreal Gazette. He argues that media reports and experiences of hockey brought Canadians into local and national communities of interest, while constructing narratives of regional identity, civic boosterism, and community rivalry. The author analyzes newspaper coverage of the two Stanley Cup hockey challenges played by the Winnipeg Victorias and the Montreal Victorias in February and December 1896, and the five Winnipeg-Montreal Stanley Cup challenges between 1899-1903.
