It was in the spring of 1911 when Frank Patrick and his brother Lester outlined rules and visionary innovations for a new league, a time that many credit as the true birth of modern-day hockey.
From that discussion — which included their father and lumber tycoon Joseph — Frank and Lester Patrick announced the formation of the Pacific Coast Hockey Association on Dec. 7.
