    Does anyone know who holds the record for most points as an 18 year old at the world championships and how many points it is?

    It seems to me he holds the record for scoring at WJC's but maybe he holds this one too.

    Yeah. He scored 4 goals and 2 assists in that tournament. Not super-productive but he the goals he scored were pretty clutch.

    Olli Jokinen scored 4 goals and 2 assists in 7 games back in 1997.

    I'm very, very certain however that 6 points ain't the record.

    Though what should be noted is that the format of the tournament have changed allot over the years. Before there where often only 8 teams in the A pool, and one of them wheren't slovakia. So there where 8 good teams and only two "bad". Often Germany and Switzerland. So each good team would only play a bad team once. I think that where the case for example when Forsberg scored his 6 points. Forsberg also have the record in the WJC, that time it where the other way around, he scored like 10 points against Japan.

    Crosby is older than that, so how did he become the youngest to ever play for Team Canada at the WC?

    You are absolutely correct, my apologies for the faulty math calculations. Sidney was born Aug. 7, 1987, so that would make him the 4th youngest (18y, 9m, 28d) ever to play for Team Canada.

    Sorry for the mistake.

    Spezza played at the WJC at 16 did he not/ or was that 18? anyway 16 is pretty young to be in the WJC's so obviously he must be pretty good. ;)

    Actually, Jeff Friesen was born in 1976 so he would be 19 years old if he played first in 1996. And Crosby is a month younger than you have listed, so he would be the second youngest behind Kariya. Thanks for posting the information though. :)

    Those are amazing numbers for an 18 year old entering his draft year. I'm talking about Kariya of course.
