I thought we needed a thread like this if we have anyone sitting on old material that is impossible to get from the net. Karsten in the international hockey forum had this wonderful thread about the 60 years anniversary of the Danish Hockey Union: http://www.internationalhockey.net/forums/showthread.php?7767-Danish-Hockey-60-years So I have looked into it and tried to find additional information around the net: I made this post in the Latvian forum to see if anyone there had some information about the “Father of Danish icehockey“ JÃ¸rgen Hviid that played for Unions Riga in the 1930's. http://hfboards.mandatory.com/showthread.php?t=1750187 I have also been trying to find something about the Bandy pioneers from primarily KSF that turned to Icehockey in the 20's and played in 1929. So to start with an appetizer, since what I have gathered is still quite disorganized. I have the following other webpages with a lot of good information: KSF history: http://www.ksf.dk/klub-information/historie/ They seriously needs some pictures on the net as this clubs just oozes history! Rungsted history: http://rungsted.is/rungsteds-ishockeyhistorie/ Silkeborg history: http://www.ssf1896.dk/index.php?page=historisk-blik Dansk Ishockey Unions historie: http://www.ishockey.dk/Documents.aspx?category=2&docid=19 Nordic Games (Svensk: Nordiska Spelen; Dansk: Nordiske Lege) where Bandy (9-man version) was played already from 1901. http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nordiska_spelen Danish Bandy Union (meaning players from mostly KSF) participated in the Nordic Games in 1909 and 1917: http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dansk_Bandy_Union Important Bandy players that also turned icehockey players: It had started when three Danes (Vilhelm Wolfhagen, Einar Middelboe and Ove Schlichtkrull) went to St Moritz for the first European Icehockey Championship in 1922. Here they actually participated in an exhibition Bandy match, but saw that Icehockey likely were more practical for Denmark than Bandy. So KSF dissolved their bandy and waited for cold winter to play hockey (which beside 1924 took until 1929 and then it wasn't possible again before 1940). Vilhelm Wolfhagen (Olympic football silver 1908-1912). Played for Frederiksberg SkÃ¸jtelÃ¸berforening 1902-1922. http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vilhelm_Wolfhagen Einar Middelboe (Olympic reserve in football 1908, brother of the multi-sport talented Nils Middelboe - one of the leading Danish football stars, that also played bandy, but was in England from 1913-1936 [first non-british football player in Chelsea]) http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Einar_Middelboe http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nils_Middelboe Poul Graae: Goalkeeper reserve for the Olympic football team in 1920: http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poul_Graae Harry Bendixen: National football team player 1924-28 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harry_Bendixen Henning Holst: Olympic silver medalist for Denmark in Field hockey 1920, also played in the olympic field hockey tournament in 1928 and 1936! http://da.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henning_Holst Anyone else knows about players on the first Danish Icehockey team of ex-Bandy players, footballers and field-hockey players? This early stuff is really fascinating.
