      World Hockey Championships

The World Hockey Championships are held every year around May. The championships
are currently comprised of 4 pools. Pool A being the top tournament, which now
consists of the top 16 hockey playing nations. This may change, as in the last
few years the tournament has added teams.
The other Pools, B, C and D, hold the rest of the nations as their rankings

The IIHF uses a promotion based system, as a winner from one Pool will advance
to the higher Pool the following year. Same system applied for relegation,
as last place teams drop down a Pool.
Some occasions call for qualifying tournaments, where a team doesn't automaticcaly
get relegated or promoted.

Below are all the World Championship standings, with all-time rankings of each Pool.

If i missed something, tell me about it. I'm always looking for
stats and standings, and the database can never be totally

I am currently looking for NHL vs non-NHL teams. Whether it be
against IHL, AHL teams, or versus international and club teams.
Check out the Hockey Almanac   main page for what i have compiled to date.

I will of course give credit to where the info was gathered.
