Trivia[]

The tournament was a direct knock-out playoff.

Warm winter weather melted the ice in Chamonix, France and forced Ligue Internationale de Hockey sur Glace officials to move the tournament to Berlin, Germany, and the Sportpalast (which had artificial ice.) Additionally, the 4th place match was played in Vienna, Austria, making this the only world hockey championship tournament to take place in three different countries.

The Canadian team was recognized as being so dominant, such that they did not participate in the play off tournament. Canada was put into the gold medal final game, and the tournament was played to determine an opponent.

The Canadian team: Howard Armstrong (captain), Timpson, Griffin, Radke, Park, Clayton, Adams, Grant, Hutchinson.

Canada played an exhibition tour both before and after the championship. See 1929-30 Toronto Canadas.
