The 1992 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships (1992 WJHC) was the 16th edition of the World Junior Ice Hockey Championships and was held from December 26, 1991, until January 4, 1992. It was held in Füssen and Kaufbeuren, Germany; the Commonwealth of Independent States won gold, while Sweden won silver, and the United States took home the bronze medal.

Final standings[edit]

The 1992 tournament was a round-robin format, with the top three teams winning gold, silver and bronze medals respectively.

The day the tournament began, the Soviet Union formally dissolved. In the week that followed the team continued to play as the Soviet Union, but on January 1, 1992, the team was renamed the Commonwealth of Independent States.[1] However, two players on the team (Sergejs Žoltoks and Sandis Ozoliņš) were from Latvia, a nation not part of the Commonwealth.

Pool C[edit]

Pool C was contested by nine teams from December 28, to January 4, in Marino and Rome Italy. In the first round the nine teams were divided into three groups of three; the second round pitted the three first place teams against each other, likewise for the second place teams. Greece was disqualified for using an ineligible player, so they did not participate in the final round.[2]
