Hello Jukka,

I received a reply from the leading expert on British ice hockey history regarding the 1924 Great Britain player statistics. He said that he also would like to find those stats. He only has incomplete information and even that differs depending on various sources (much like the same problem we are encountering). He also mentioned that the Olympic authorities did not begin to compile or publish such statistics until the late 1950's. Plus assists were not officially recorded during the 1920 through 1936 Olympic hockey tournaments. The assists were usually given by newspaper reporters in their game story accounts for their respective papers.

Here are the goal scorers (73 goals) for the 1924 United States team:

C - Herbert J. Drury (Pittsburgh) 23 goals
LD - Clarence J. Abel (St. Paul) 15 goals
LW - Willard W. Rice (Boston) 13 goals
RD - captain Irving W. Small (Boston) 8 goals
RW - Justin J. McCarthy (Boston) 8 goals
W/C - Frank Synnott (Boston) 6 goals
sub - John J. Lyons (Boston) 0 goals

GK: Alphonse A. Lacroix (Boston) 5 gp (4-1-0), 225 mins., 6 ga (1.20 gaa) 4 shutouts
GK: John A. Langley (Boston) 1 gp, (0-0-0), 35 mins., 0 ga (0.00 gaa)

USA-BEL 19:0 (8:0, 5:0, 6:0)
USA: Drury (6), Rice (5), Synnott (3), McCarthy (3), Abel (2)

USA-FRA 22:0 (12:0, 1:0, 9:0)
USA: Drury (6), Abel (6), Small (5), Rice (3), McCarthy (1), Synnott (1)

USA-GBR 11:0 (6:0, 2:0, 3:0)
USA: Drury (4), Rice (2), Small (2), Abel (1), McCarthy (1), Synnott (1)

USA-SWE 20:0 (5:0, 7:0, 8:0)
USA: Drury (6), Abel (6), McCarthy (3), Rice (3), Small (1), Synnott (1)

CAN-USA 6:1 (2:1, 3:0, 1:0)
CAN: Watson (3), Smith (1), McCaffery (1), Munro (1)
USA: Drury (1)

This is what I have found up to this point. Hope this helps, Jukka.
