1958 World Ice Hockey Championships

The 1958 Ice Hockey World Championships were held between February 28 and March 9, 1958, in Oslo, Norway at the Jordal Amfi arena. The Whitby Dunlops represented Canada, winning the World Championship for the 17th time. The Soviets lost the final game to the Canadians 4 - 2, settling for both silver and their fourth European Championship. Scoring leading Connie Broden holds the distinction of being the only player ever to win the Stanley Cup and the World Championship in the same year.
