The legend says that Ukrainian hockey was given a major kick-start in 1963, when former Soviet Communist party boss and ice hockey fan Leonid Brezhnev asked Volodymyr Scherbytsky about why things were slowly developing in Ukrainian ice hockey.

Following Brezhnevís order, a new ice skating rink Ldinka (Kryzhynka in Ukrainian or Icicle) was built in downtown Kyiv between the place where Olympic Stadium and Sports Palace are today, and ice hockey club Dynamo was established, later to be renamed in Sokil (Falcon).
