Again relativizes the notion that the Soviets started from the scratch in 1946. Their experience in Chokkey s Myachom ("Hockey with the Ball") is not to be underestimated. I guess the same is true for Canada in the 1880s.

The first ever Soviet Championship in Chokkey s Shaiboi ("Hockey with the Puck") or Kanadskiy Chokkey ("Canadian Hockey"). It was the last and decisive game which earned Dinamo Moscow the domestic Championship Trophy.
