Interested in IIHF tournament history?
Hello you all!

Anyone interested in IIHF tournament history can visit the following website: http:://kotisivu.dnainternet.net/ruskeeah/

Unfortunately the text is mainly for the Finnish tournament history enthusiasts at the moment, but I think, that my presentation in other languages will help with the statistic things you, other guys! If you visit a lot, I will make international presentations by 2008. For the jubilee of the IIHF!

Unfortunately this website is not available in Google or Yahoo at the moment.

Hope to have your comments, good and bad!

All the best

Thank you for viewing this message!

Those, who visited the website of mine and were wondering the Finnish team names; I'm sorry, I forgot to add the list of team names in other languages.

But now they are there as a list called "table", if you wanna pay a revisit!

All the best

Thanks again for all of you for viewing this message!

If you have followed the 1930's statistics, I've made some additions to them.

About Riga WC
Hello again you all, who have viewed the Centennial Hockey Website!

I've made some corrections to the 1950's statistics.

Naturally I've got a fresh short article in Finnish about the 2006 Riga tournament, including the statistics of the medal winning teams!

So, now the 2006 international tournaments have been played!

All the best

Hello Svetovy Poharu!

Thank you very much for the rosters!

In the meantime I've also noticed, that the 1969 US roster isn't quite good enough. If you could mail that one as well, I'd be very grateful!

By the way, I am about to start making international presentations of the IIHF tournaments for my website!

All the best

svetovy poharu 06-28-2006 07:26 PM

The 1969 American squad was mainly made up of players from the United States Hockey League (USHL) in the Midwest (mostly from the Green Bay Bobcats and Rochester Mustangs teams). The U.S. team only played 2 games together before the start of the World Championships, losing overwhelmingly 11-0 (2:0, 3:0, 6:0) to the Czechoslovakian national team on March 11 in Prague.

The team had a player-coach, 35-year-old John Mayasich of Eveleth, Minnesota and the team manager was Wayne Dornack of Rochester (Minn.) Mustangs (USHL).

Mike Curran, 24-years-old Univ. of North Dakota graduate, played for Green Bay (Wisc.) Bobcats (USHL).
John Lothrop, played for Rochester (Minn.) Mustangs (USHL).

Bob Paradise, 24-years-old from St. Paul, Minnesota, played for Michigan Tech (WCHA).
Bruce Riutta, played for Green Bay (Wisc.) Bobcats (USHL).
Carl Lackey, played for Green Bay (Wisc.) Bobcats (USHL).
James Branch, played for Rochester (Minn.) Mustangs (USHL).
John Mayasich, playing-coach of Green Bay (Wisc.) Bobcats (USHL).

Billy Reichart, 33-years-old, played for Rochester (Minn.) Mustangs (USHL).
Paul Coppo, centre, 30-years-old, of Hancock, Michigan, played for Green Bay (Wisc.) Bobcats (USHL).
Keith Christiansen, centre, of Int'l Falls, Minn., played for Grand Rapids Bruins (USHL).
Larry Stordahl, played for Rochester (Minn.) Mustangs (USHL).
Jerry Lackey, played for Green Bay (Wisc.) Bobcats (USHL).
Tim Sheehy, right-wing, 20-years-old of Int'l Falls, Minn., played for Boston College (ECAC).
Larry Skime, played for Green Bay (Wisc.) Bobcats (USHL).
Gary Gambucci, centre, 22-years-old, of Hibbing, Minn., played for Rochester (Minn.) Mustangs (USHL).
Peter Markle, right-wing, 22-years-old of Minneapolis, Minn., played for Rochester (Minn.) Mustangs (USHL).
Ron Naslund, played for Rochester (Minn.) Mustangs.
Larry Pleau, left-wing, 21-years-old, of Lynn, Mass., played for Jersey Devils (Eastern Hockey League).

Jukka, sorry for my mistake. Please reverse the rosters of the 1948 U.S. Olympic squads. The first roster, listed as "banned", was actually the roster used in the 1948 games. The second listed roster was the one that was sent home.

jukka ruskeeahde 06-28-2006 11:46 PM

Hello Svetovy Poharu!

Never mind, you've probably guessed, that I've got that roster used in 1948 games! Thanks a lot for the 1969 US roster!

All right, I'll start making the international presentations very soon! But I'd like to have a bit more information about goalscoring of the following old-time medal winning teams:

1924: Great Britain.
1934: USA.
1935: Great Britain.
1938: Canada and Great Britain.
1949: Canada and USA.
1953: Germany and Switzerland.

I am waiting information about these tournaments from Switzerland and I know information this old takes it time. But it is easier, when you have a lot of statistics to compare!

All the best

svetovy poharu 07-02-2006 09:16 PM


By any chance, do you have the player statistics (games played, goals, assists and penalty minutes) for Finland at the 1951 World Championships in Paris?

If you do have them, would you please post them here? Also, do you have the player stats for Veli-Pekka Ketola and Matti Keinonen at the 1973 World Championships in Moscow? I have found different stats for Ketola (one has him with 3 goals and 2 assists, the other with 2 goals and 2 assists in 10 gp, 12 pim), and Keinonen (one has him with 1 goal and 0 assists, the other with 2 goals and 0 assists in 10 gp, ??pim).

Thanks for your help!

I only have the roster for 1951 Team Finland and the SM-Liiga team they played for during the 1950-51 season:

GK: Unto Wiitala (Karhu-Kissat Helsinki)
GK: Matti Naapuri (Tarmo Hameenlinna)

D: Pentti Isotalo (Ilves Tampere)
D: Jukka Wuolio (Ilves Tampere)
D: Ossi Kauppi (Ilves Tampere)
D: Matti Rintakoski (TBK Tampere)
D: Esko Tie (Tarmo Hameenlinna)
D: Eero Saari (Ilves Tampere)

F: Kauko Makinen (Ilves Tampere)
F: Matti Karumaa (Tarmo Hameenlinna)
F: Keijo Kuusela (Tarmo Hameenlinna)
F: Kalle Havulinna (Ilves Tampere)
F: Aarne Honkavaara (Ilves Tampere)
F: Yrjo Hakala (Ilves Tampere)
F: Lofti Nasib (Ilves Tampere)
F: Teuvo Takala (TBK Tampere)
F: Christian Rapp (HIFK Helsinki)

jukka ruskeeahde 07-02-2006 11:41 PM

And the stats with penalty minutes for Ketola and Keinonen in 1973 in my files is:

Hope this helps!

This is exactly what I was looking for.

Thank you very much for your help, Jukka. It is greatly appreciated.

svetovy poharu 07-03-2006 08:51 AM


May I ask you one more question regarding the 1951 Team Finland?

I noticed that defenceman Pentti Isotalo does not appear on your stats but his name is listed on the 1951 roster. Do you know if Isotalo played in any of the 1951 WC games?

Thanks again for your help.

jukka ruskeeahde 07-03-2006 12:10 PM

Hello Svetovy Poharu!

For some reason I missed him. His stats is:
Pentti Isotalo 6 0+1.
All right, good thing that you noticed it.
If you want more Finnish stats, I'll do the best I can.

All the best

jukka ruskeeahde 07-04-2006 10:23 AM

Hello Svetovy Poharu!

I hope you could still help me with one US national team:

According to my information the best US scorer in Innsbruck 1964 was Paul Coppo. But I haven't found his games played, goals, assists, penalties.

So if you have them, I'll be grateful to get them!

All the best

svetovy poharu 07-06-2006 12:20 PM

Hello Jukka,

May I ask of your help again in locating some missing stats (games played, goals, assists, penalty minutes) for Team Finland players?

I cannot find the player stats for Seppo Lindstrom at the 1970 WC in Sweden.

Also I am missing player stats from the 1971 WC at Switzerland for Seppo Repo and
Jorma Vehmanen.

I cannot find the player stats for Matti Keinonen at the 1972 WC in Czechoslovakia.

Any help you can provide is appreciated. If I can be of assistance to you for information that you need, please let me know. Jukka, do you have player stats for other countries (such as Poland, Switzerland, East Germany) that have played at past World Championships during the 1960's and 1970's?

Thanks again for your help.

jukka ruskeeahde 07-06-2006 12:42 PM

Hello Svetovy Poharu!

Here are the Finnish stats you are looking for:

Seppo Lindstrom 10 0+1 (6)

Seppo Repo 6 1+1 (0)
Jorma Vehmanen 9 2+1 (4)

Matti Keinonen 7 0+0 (0)

Well, any help with those "old-time medal teams" I mentioned earlier is very appreciated! And maybe the best scorer of the 1966 US team!

Unfortunately I have very limited stats outside the 11 medal countries. Most of them are the best scorers of pool B and pool C.

All the best

svetovy poharu 07-06-2006 03:01 PM

Thanks for your help, Jukka.

Unfortunately, same is true for me, I have very limited statistics from before 1960.
I only have access to six historical newspaper archives in North America, and the coverage of World Championships is almost entirely Canadian-related, except for the NY Times and Washington Post.

As for the 1966 WC in Llubljana, that is one of the tournaments I do not have much stats on Team USA. I am missing 5 of the 7 USA boxscores. I can only account for 15 of the 18 American goals. Here is what I know:

In first game, CAN 7:2 USA (USA goals by Emery Ruelle (unassisted) and Larry Stordahl (unassisted).

In second game, USSR 11:0 USA (no goals).

In third game, SWE 6:1 USA (USA goal by ????).

In fourth game, CZE 7:4 USA (USA goals by Emery Ruelle, Len Lilyholm, Dick Roberge, and ?????).

In fifth game, FIN 4:1 USA (USA goal by ????).

In sixth game, USA 4:0 East Germany (USA goals by Ron Naslund (2 goals), Len Lilyholm (1 goal, 1 assist), Lyle Porter (1 goal), Emery Ruelle (1 assist) and Marshall Tschida (1 assist).

In seventh game, USA 6:4 POL (USA goals by Jim Stordahl (1 goal, 1 assist), Ken Johannson (1 goal), Lyle Porter (1 goal, 1 assist), Ron Naslund (1 goal), Emery Ruelle (1 goal), Len Lilyholm (1 goal, 1 assist).

Sorry for the lack of numbers. Perhaps someone else may be able to help fill in the missing blanks.

jukka ruskeeahde 07-06-2006 10:00 PM

Hello Svetovy Poharu!

Thanks for the numbers. Like you said, maybe there will be someone who can fill the gaps in our statistics someday!

All the best

jukka ruskeeahde 07-07-2006 09:02 AM

Hello Svetovy Poharu!

Sorry, but I still I have to ask you about goalscorers of one US team:

The only information I have of the 1955 US team in Germany is, that no-one scored against the soviets.

So, I hope you can give some more information, if you have one!

All the best

svetovy poharu 07-07-2006 01:30 PM

Hello Jukka,

Unfortunately as I mentioned earlier, I mostly have incomplete stats from before 1960. As for the 1955 WC at Germany, I only have 6 of the 8 USA boxscores. I am missing the USA-West Germany and USA-Switzerland boxscores (plus I can only find 6 of the 7 American goal scorers in that US-Swiss game). Thus, I can only account for 32 of the 33 American goals, I am missing that one goal.

As a result, this is what I have stats-wise on the 1955 USA team, but please keep in mind it is incomplete:

GK: Don Rigazio (Cambridge, Mass.), 8 gp (0 + 0), 0 pim, 480 mins., 29 ga, 150-plus total saves, 4 wins, 2 losses, 2 ties.
GK: Henry Bothfeld, 0 gp as goalie but played 1 game as a forward registering one assist.

DEF: Dan McKinnon (Williams, Minn.), 8 gp (4 + 0), 2 pim
DEF: Wendell Anderson (St. Paul, Minn.), 8 gp (2 + 0), 5 pim
DEF: John Grocutt (Melrose, Mass.), 8 gp (1 + 0), 4 pim
DEF: John (Jack) Gilbert (Worcester, Mass.), 8 gp (0 + 0), 4 pim

FWD: Gordon Christian (Warroad, Minn.), 8 gp (5 + 0), 2 pim
FWD: Dick Dougherty (International Falls, Minn.), 8 gp (5 + 0), 2 pim
FWD: Arnie Bauer (St. Paul, Minn.), 8 gp (4 + 1), 2 pim
FWD: John Titus (Melrose, Mass.), 8 gp (4 + 1), 2 pim
FWD: Gene Campbell (St. Paul, Minn.), 8 gp (2 + 2), 0 pim
FWD: Rube Bjorkman (Roseau, Minn.), 8 gp (2 + 1), 0 pim
FWD: John Matchefts (Eveleth, Minn.), 6 gp (1 + 1), 10 pim
FWD: Walter Greeley (Framingham, Mass.), 8 gp (1 + 0), 0 pim
FWD: Edward Robson (Arlington, Mass.), 8 gp (1 + 0), 0 pim
FWD: Dick Rodenheiser (Malden, Mass.), 1 gp (0 + 0), 0 pim
FWD: Don Sennott (no games played)

jukka ruskeeahde 07-07-2006 03:00 PM

Hello Svetovy Poharu!

Anyway, it's better than nothing!

So, let's see, if anyone has anything more to say!

svetovy poharu 07-08-2006 08:15 AM

Hello Jukka,

I noticed that you also have been looking for stats from the 1953 WC at Zurich/Basle, Switzerland. For some reason, this is the most difficult tournament for me to find information about. I am missing Switzerland and West Germany's stats as well. I do have Czechoslovakia's goal scorers in the 4 games they participated in. But do you perhaps have Sweden's stats for the 1953 WC? I am missing Sweden's stats. Jukka, may I also ask if you have the player stats from the 1965 WC for Finland's Ilkka Mesikammen, Matti Keinonen and Seppo Nikkila? Thank you very much for your great help!

Here is 1953 WC Czechoslovakia team goals:

F Bronislav Danda (7 goals)
F Miroslav Rejman (6 goals)
F Slavomir Barton (6 goals)
F Vlastimil Bubnik (4 goals)
D Karel Gut (2 goals)
F Jiri Sekyra (2 goals)
F Miroslav Kluc (2 goals)
D Jan Lidral (1 goal)
F Oldrich Seiml (1 goal)
