Try the Sports Library & Digital Collection.  Email the library staff at 
library at la84.org.

I can't tell if the National Hockey League has a library.

Subject: [PW] Hockey term - "go" to mean fight

Hello all

I am helping a friend trying to trace the origin of the verb "go" to mean
"to fight" in ice hockey

I have been searching historical newspapers but it seems impossible to
isolate the word"go" in the context of hockey and fighting

any tips on how to approach this?
