The 1989 Ice Hockey World Championships took place in Sweden from 15 April - 1 May. The games were played in Södertälje and Stockholm, in the newly built arena Globen. Eight teams took part, and each team played each other once. The four best teams then played each other again. This was the 53rd World Championships, and also the 64th ice hockey European Championships. The Soviet Union became world champions for the 21st time, and also European champions for the 26th time. In the European Championship, only games between European teams are counted.


The tournament was marred by positive drug tests. Fortunately, only the goal totals of the Americans were affected in the end. Their losses against the Czechs and the Canadians were ruled as shutouts because of Corey Millen's high testosterone levels. Canadian Randy Carlyle also came under suspicion, but his A and B samples did not match, and he was cleared of wrongdoing.

World Championship Group B (Norway)Edit

Played in Oslo and Lillehammer March 30th to April 9th. The April 5th game between Norway and Austria was officially adjusted to 8-0 for Norway because of Siegfried Haberl's positive drug test. Standard procedure, since 1969, had been for Group B and Group C to exchange two teams. That stopped this year, fortunately for Japan, unfortunately for Yugoslavia.
