Which players won both junior and senior IIHF World Championships?

1

EDIT: I have made this post CW, so that other users can update it, if needed.

To answer my question (at least partially) I checked the lists of Gold medalists from junior and senior championships as shown at elitepropects here and here. Note that the lists from older championships are incomplete. (I was able to find that also Makarov, Kasatonov, Krutov, Pervukhin have achieved this. They are not in the list on eliteprospects. I have added them to the list below. Just for reference, I will add here also the version of the lists I was working with - in case they will be updated later. Here are they: juniors and seniors.)

I found the following players with junior and senior medals from the same year: Viacheslav Fetisov and Sergei Makarov in 1978, Sergej Fedorov in 1989, Jamie Storr in 1994, Martin...

Dominik Hasek (CZE)

Born: Pardubice, Czechoslovakia (Czech Republic), 29 January 1965

Unorthodox, unpredictable, and unbelievable, Dominik Hasek rightly earned the nickname Dominator because of his ability to almost single-handedly win a game for his team. As a goalie, his style was unique – no one before him played in his manner, and no one after could possibly imitate the form he demonstrated in the crease. His superiority was evident no matter where he played, whether for his country, his NHL team, or his Czech club team at the start and end of his career.

Hasek started to play in the Czechoslovak top league at the age of 16, and two years later he was selected by Chicago 199th overall at the 1983 NHL Entry Draft. His low selection didn’t represent his reputation; it was more a reflection of his not being allowed to leave his country to play in the West. Internationally, though, Hasek was developing a reputation as a fine young goaltender. He took the Czechs...

Prague is the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic. It is the 14th-largest city in the European Union. It is also the historical capital of Bohemia. Situated in the northwest of the country on the Vltava River, the city is home to about 1.3 million people, while its larger urban zone is estimated to have a population of nearly 2 million. The city has a temperate climate, with warm summers and chilly winters.

Prague has been a political, cultural, and economic centre of central Europe with waxing and waning fortunes during its 1,100-year existence. Founded during the Romanesque and flourishing by the Gothic and Renaissance eras, Prague was not only the capital of the Czech state, but also the seat of two Holy Roman Emperors and thus also the capital of the Holy Roman Empire. It was an important city to the Habsburg Monarchy and its Austro-Hungarian Empire and after World War I became the capital of Czechoslovakia. The city played major roles in the Protestant...

The IIHF Ice Hockey World Junior Championships (WJC), commonly known simply as the World Juniors, is an annual event organized by the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) for national under-20 ice hockey teams from around the world. It is traditionally held in late December, ending in the beginning of January.

The main tournament features the top ten ranked hockey nations in the world, comprising the 'Top Division', from which a world champion is crowned. There are also three lower pools—Divisions I, II and III—that each play separate tournaments playing for the right to be promoted to a higher pool, or face relegation to a lower pool.

The competition's profile is particularly high in Canada; its stature has been credited to Canada's strong performance in the tournament (it has won the gold medal sixteen times since its inception), the role of hockey in Canadian culture, along with strong media coverage and fan attendance. As such, in recent years, nearly half...

Italian hockey is starting to see the results of their “made in Italy” plan that foresees fewer national team players not coming through the own youth program.

After starting this initiative at the start of the 2014/15 season, Italy has won promotion back to the top division after a second-place finish at the 2016 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Division I Group A in Katowice, Poland.

“We are such a close group of guys. We have a lot of fun when we are in national team camps and when we go to tournaments. To fight for each other is the most important thing on the ice. We can get a lot of energy out of this,” says national team captain Anton Bernard, who has been through the changes and has played in two top-level World Championships in 2012 and 2014.

For the Bolzano native, whose brother Andreas is one of the national team goalies, the 2017 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship in Cologne and Paris could be the sixth consecutive World Championship tournament...

Team USA outlasted defending champion Sweden to claim gold at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia. Led by the heroic play of goaltender John Gibson, the United States claimed its third World Junior Championship.

Earlier in the morning, Team Canada dropped the bronze-medal game in overtime to Team Russia, who settled for a disappointing third place on home ice.

Let's take a look at the medal-round games:

Gold-Medal Game

USA 3, Sweden 1

Exactly one year after Sweden claimed gold with an overtime victory over Russia, the Swedes passed the title of World Junior Champion to the United States.

Potential 2013 first overall pick Seth Jones made headlines days before the tournament, saying that Team USA was the team to beat. It turns out that the star defenseman was right. After leading the U.S. to gold for the first time since 2010, Jones may have claimed pole position in the race to become the top pick.

The World Junior Chess Championship is an under-20 chess tournament (players must have been under 20 years old on 1 January in the year of competition) organized by the World Chess Federation (FIDE).

The idea was the brainchild of William Ritson-Morry, who organized the 1951 inaugural event to take place in Birmingham, England. Subsequently, it was held every two years until 1973, when an annual schedule was adopted. In 1983, a separate tournament for girls was established.

Each FIDE member nation may select one entrant except for the host nation, which may select two. Some players are seeded into the tournament based on Elo rating and top finishes in previous championships. The first championship was an 11-round Swiss system tournament. In subsequent championships the entrants were divided into sections, and preliminary sectional tournaments were used to establish graded finals sections (Final A, Final B, etc.). Since 1975 the tournaments have returned to the Swiss...
