All-Ukrainian veterans game


The team of stubborn Ukrainian ice hockey veterans celebrated a tough 7-6 victory on ice Feb. 12 in Kyiv over their counterparts from Russia, who played for the former Soviet Union ice hockey veteransí hockey club.
Yuldashev, Godynyuk, Golikovs, Shalimov, etc playing together

interesting info:
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).
