1984 - Nykoping, Sweden

The Soviets won their second straight gold medal with a convincing showing. With Sergei Nemchinov, Alexei Gusarov and goaltender Evgeny Belosheikin anchoring the back-end, the Russian forwards were able to freewheel on the attack and poured in 50 goals.

Alexander Tchernikh led the Russians in scoring with seven goals and 14 points. Nikolai Borschevsky and Igor Viazimikin scored six goals each.

After beating the Czechs 6-4 and tying Canada 3-3, the Soviets wrapped up the gold medal with an 8-2 thumping of the host Swedes.

The decisive win actually turned out to be a 3-1 nail-biter against surprising Finland. It turned out to be the only loss of the tournament for the Finns, who settled for the silver medal. Raimo Helminen led the tournament with 11 goals and a record 22 points, while future NHLer Esa Tikkanen chipped in eight goals.

The Czechs won the bronze medal through a high-scoring attack that featured eight players with at least three goals and totalled 51 for the tournament. Petr Rosol had 10, while future NHLer Petr Klima had six.

Canada opened the tournament with a 4-2 loss to the Finns and never really recovered. Russ Courtnall and John MacLean showed their stuff with seven goals each, but the Canadians just couldn't get it together against the stronger teams and finished fourth.

Mario Lemieux might have provided the star power Canada seemed to lack, but he opted not to participate in the tournament.
