Not in the NHL record, but a mistake nevertheless: According to Hockey Reference and Legends of Hockey, Canadian forward John McCreedy scored 4 goals and 3 assists in 7 games at the 1939-1940 World Championship. (See http://www.hockey-reference.com/play...mccrejo01.html and http://www.legendsofhockey.net/Legen...p?player=13610.) Which is impossible because there was no World Championship in 1939-1940 due to WW2. In reality McCreedy's achievements belong to the 1938-1939 tournament.

Oddly enough, his Wikipedia site avoids that mistake only to erroneously claim McCreedy won the World Championship in 1937-1938. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_McCreedy.
