Hockey’s beginnings in Pardubice can be traced to the Matiční jezero where bandy, a hockey-like game, was played. Organised hockey was founded in Pardubice by Vilém Weiss in 1923, the same year that the club LTC Pardubice was established. Regular competitions first took place during the 1930-1931 season. After the end of the Second World War, a new ice rink was installed in Pardubice, and by Christmas of 1947 a new winter sports stadium was opened with an artificial ice rink.
In the 1949-1950 season Pardubice won its division and was promoted to the Extra League. The 1950-1951 season saw the team compete with a new name, Slavia Pardubice. Since that time the club has never been relegated from the top level of competition. At the end of the 1952-1953 the club changed its name once again to Dynamo Pardubice. Players such as Bronislav Danda and goaltender Vladimír Nadrchal began their careers with Pardubice during the 1950s. The club’s first major success came in 1960.
Dynamo Pardubice reached the medals for the first time, reaching 3rd place. In the same season a new winter sports stadium, including a roof, was completed. The following season the club changed its name again to Tesla Pardubice. This name remained until July 1991. In the 1960s, Jiří Dolana and Stanislav Prýl went on to represent Czechoslovakia in Olympic competition.
In 1965, Zdeněk Špaček led the league in scoring with 33 goals. Pardubice reached further success in 1973, winning their first title in the champions league. Vladimír Martinec led the league with 23 assists, winning his first Golden Hockey Stick. The 1975-1976 season started with the final match between Tesla Pardubice and CSKA Moscow. Pardubice stayed among the top three teams in the Extra League for the following 3 seasons. Goaltender Jiří Crha was a backup goaltender in several top competitions at the time, but didn’t win any gold medals.
Crha consequently decided to emigrate, becoming the first Czech player to play in the NHL. After 1982, Pardubice’s senior team experienced a resurgence. New team members included goaltender Dominik Hašek, defender František Musil, and forwards Otakar Janecký and Jiří Šejba. At the beginning of the 1991-1992 season the club changed its name to HC Pardubice.
HC Pardubice entered the 1993-1994 season with a strong mixture of experienced and young players, including goaltender Radovan Biegl, who quickly became one of the best in the league. The solid finish wasn’t to be repeated, as the team slipped to the bottom of the standings and had to defend its place in the Extra League in 1996. HC Pardubice gradually lost Král, Biegl and other experienced players who were replaced by junior players, among them forward Petr Sýkora. In the following season the team received a new young coach, Miloš Říha, and Pardubice started to improve their performance. In the 1996-1997 season Pardubice reached 4th place. Though team success was elusive, various individual players had significant achievements, such as Petr Sýkora who led the league with 26 goals in 2001.
