I think the game has a certain knockabout charm. There was demand for them back in the day, with several manufacturers turning them out. Ruffler & Walker made them in the UK:
A 1950s version called Toto-Fix, by Lumet, is currently on German ebay
with a BIN of Euro 1099. These seem to be relatively common, at least in Germany.
Th. Bergmann made a version called Hurricane:
There is also a miniature, possibly Swedish-built, 6 manikin version:
and a late, Formica-clad, game called Mini-Match (possibly British). Unusually, in this game, the two teams play from within their own halves of the pitch.
Nowadays they seem to have been largely superseded by Air Hockey.
I've borrowed some images from our German friends at Antik-Automaten
There's a two page list of coin-op hockey games at arcade-history.com
In America, jukebox manufacturer J P Seeburg's version had hockey sticks scored into the sides:
I believe the Elephant House example (top of page), although it lacks the hockey stick sides, was a Seeburg, erroneously listed as Rock-Ola. These tend to fetch higher prices than the English version, and are sometimes referred to as the 'Rolls Royce of Ice Hockeys'.
The Germans also made several high quality versions, including Hanno's Hanno-Hockey:
and Jentzsch & Meerz's IMOHOCKEY Model B
But to my mind, the most desirable is the auto-scoring 6 manikin IMOHOCKEY model A, made in 1936 by Jentzsch & Meerz.
The example above was recently on ebay US for an ambitious BIN of $3,600!
