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.

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.
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: Yrjo Hakala (Ilves Tampere)
F: Lofti Nasib (Ilves Tampere)
F: Teuvo Takala (TBK Tampere)
F: Christian Rapp (HIFK Helsinki)
Unfortunately I don't have penalty minutes, but otherwise my stats of 1951 Team Finland is as follows:
Matti Karumaa 6 3+2
Aarne Honkavaara 6 2+3
Keijo Kuusela 6 2+2
Esko Tie 3 2+1
Christian Rapp 4 2+0
Eero Saari 5 2+0
Matti Rintakoski 6 1+1

Kauko Mäkinen 3 0+0
Yrjö Hakala 5 0+0
Matti Naapuri 6 0+0(Goalie)
Unto Wiitala 6 0+0 (Goalie)
And the stats with penalty minutes for Ketola and Keinonen in 1973 in my files is:
Veli-Pekka Ketola 10 2+2 (12)
Matti Keinonen 9 2+0 (22)
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
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?
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.
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)
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)
