1993 World Championship
Tournament details
Host nation Flag of Germany Germany

The 1993 Ice Hockey World Championships took place in Germany 18 April - 2 May. The games were played in Munich and Dortmund. Twelve teams took part, with the first round split into two groups of six, and the four best teams from each group advancing to the quarter-finals. This was the 57th World Championships, and Russia beat the reigning world champions Sweden to win the World Championships for the first time. The bronze medal was won by the Czech Republic, defeating Canada in their first major tournament as an independent country after their split with Slovakia at the beginning of the calendar year.

While Latvia had last competed in 1939, this year marked the World Championship debut of three national teams. Kazakhstan, Slovenia, and the Ukraine, played for the first time, in Group C. Belarus, Croatia, Estonia, and Lithuania all did not make it out of the autumn qualifiers and had to wait at least another year. Also waiting until the following year was Slovakia, who did however debut a youth team.

Eleven of the twelve openings for the Lillehammer Olympics were established in Group A. Switzerland, by being relegated, was excluded, and the final nation had to qualify in a tournament the next fall. The top two teams from Group B, the Group C champion, the top Asian nation, and Slovakia all were given the opportunity to fill the final vacancy.[1]

World Championship Group B (Netherlands)Edit

Played in Eindhoven March 25th to April 4th. The British team, just promoted from Group C, won all their games. Their first game was won by either keen strategy, or controversy, depending on how you view it. With the score against tournament favorite Poland tied three all, the British coach, Alex Dampier, asked the referee to measure the opposing goalie's stick. It was found to be illegal, and Great Britain scored the winning goal on the ensuing powerplay.[2]
