1976 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships

The 1976 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships were between December 26, 1975 and January 1, 1976 in Tampere, Finland. The Soviet team won the tournament with a perfect 4–0 record.[1] This was the third edition of the IIHF World U20 Championship, but the results are not included in official IIHF records.[2] Canada was represented by a club team, the Sherbrooke Castors, while the other four nations were represented by teams of their top under-20 players.[3] The United States did not participate in this tournament, after having competed in the 1974 and 1975 tournaments.
