1947World

The 14th Ice Hockey World Championship and 25th European Championship was the first after the Second World War. It was held from 15 to 23 February 1947 in Prague, Czechoslovakia. Eight teams participated, but it was missing the reigning world champion, Canada. The world champion was decided for the first time by round robin league play. Czechoslovakia won the world championship for the first time and the European championship for the seventh time.

It was the first World Championship to use the recently-adopted centre red line.

Flag of Canada Canadian participationEdit

The Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) had asked the Calgary Stampeders and the Hamilton Tigers, Allan Cup finalists in the previous year, and the Winnipeg Monarchs and St. Michaels College Majors, Memorial Cup finalists in the previous year, to represent Canada. All four teams turned down the invitation because their leagues' play would suffer during their long absence.

In December the CAHA asked the junior Edmonton Canadians, who had won the Alberta junior hockey title in 1945-46 to make the trip to the World Championship. This would have marked the first time that a junior team would represent Canada. The Canadians and their league, the Edmonton City Junior League agreed.

However, the British Ice Hockey Association, under Bunny Ahearne, refused to guarantee the team's expenses although they did agree to book a tour of Europe for the Canadians.

THe CAHA did not consider this acceptable and pulled out of the championsip.
