Greetings Jukka!

I have been digging deep into my files and have found all 8 of the 1949 U.S.A. WC boxscores and line-ups. I noticed that you were in need of those particular stats and here they are for you.

1949 USA WC at Stockholm:

C Bruce Mather...................7 gp, 19 + 5 = 24 pts, 0 pim
LW Jack Riley......................7 gp, 7 + 6 = 13 pts, 4 pim
LW Russell "Prince" Johnson...8 gp, 8 + 2 = 10 pts, 0 pim
RW Gerry Kilmartin...............7 gp, 6 + 1 = 7 pts, 12 pim
D Albert Yourkewicz.............8 gp, 4 + 3 = 7 pts, 18 pim
RW Milt "Buzz" Johnson.........8 gp, 3 + 4 = 7 pts, 4 pim
RW Charles Holt...................5 gp, 3 + 3 = 6 pts, 0 pim
C Arthur "Buck" Crouse..........8 gp, 2 + 4 = 6 pts, 2 pim
F Dan Crowley.....................5 gp, 1 + 3 = 4 pts, 0 pim
D Norman Walker..................8 gp, 2 + 0 = 2 pts, 4 pim
D Allan Van.........................7 gp, 2 + 0 = 2 pts, 0 pim
LW Jack Kelley.....................7 gp, 2 + 0 = 2 pts, 0 pim
D William "Bill" Thayer............8 gp, 0 + 1 = 1 pt, 6 pim
C Pat Finnegan....................2 gp, 0 + 0 = 0 pts, 0 pim
G Dick Bittner......................8 gp, 0 + 0 = 0 pts, 0 pim

The U.S. Amateur Hockey Association squad representing the United States at the 1949 world amateur hockey championships at Stockholm also played a total of 35 exhibition matches before and after the WC tournament, in England, France, Germany, Switzerland, Czechoslovakia, the Netherlands and Sweden. Listed below are the total statistics for those 35 exhibition games and 8 world championship games combined:

Bruce Mather (Springfield, Mass.).....................42 gp (65 + 48 = 113 pts)
Jack Riley (Medford, Mass.).............................39 gp (27 + 51 = 78 pts)
Gerry Kilmartin (Providence, R.I.)......................39 gp (27 + 40 = 67 pts)
Milt "Buzz" Johnson (Webster, S.D.)..................43 gp (11 + 24 = 35 pts)
Art Crouse (West Haven, Conn.).......................42 gp (19 + 15 = 34 pts)
Al Yourkewicz (Brockton, Mass.).......................39 gp ( 9 + 24 = 33 pts)
Charlie Holt (Melrose, Mass.)............................37 gp ( 8 + 25 = 33 pts)
Russ "Prince" Johnson (Grand Forks, N.D.)...........43 gp (25 + 7 = 32 pts)
Jack Kelley (Belmont, Mass.)............................42 gp (11 + 16 = 27 pts)
Dan Crowley (Medford, Mass.)..........................34 gp ( 5 + 17 = 22 pts)
Bill Thayer (Providence, R.I.)............................40 gp ( 5 + 12 = 17 pts)
Pat Finnegan (Eveleth, Minn.)...........................22 gp ( 5 + 10 = 15 pts)
Norm Walker (Scituate, Mass.)..........................38 gp ( 3 + 5 = 8 pts)
Al Van (St. Paul, Minn.)....................................38 gp ( 6 + 1 = 7 pts)
Dick Bittner (New Haven, Conn.)........................43 gp ( 0 + 0 = 0 pts)

Jack Riley, former Dartmouth athlete, was the player-coach of the U.S. team.
Vernon Thomas (assistant to the president of the A.H.A.) of Baltimore, Md., was the team's manager.
John Semple of Lynn, Mass. was the team's trainer.
Albert Yourkewicz, a defenceman, was listed as the team's back-up goalie, even though he never saw action as a goalie during the entire 43 games.
Dan Crowley, was listed as the utility position player.

Jukka, I will look further into my files to see if perhaps I can find the other statistics that you are missing. I have access to the Times of London archives and will try and locate the missing information on Great Britain's hockey teams at the 1924, 1935 and 1938 tournaments. Plus I will check into some other sources for the 1934 USA team stats, and the 1938 and 1949 Canada stats as well.
