Jonathan Toews managed to win both the junior and senior world championships in 2007. Are there some other players which managed to win both these championships in the same year?

Is there more of them if we add those, who won golden medals in different years? (For example, Igor Larionov won WJC in 1979 and 1980 and senior championships in 1982, 1983, 1986 and 1989. Other examples of players winning both junior and senior championships include Patrice Bergeron, Scott Niedermayer and Alexander Ovechkin.)

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 Havlát in 2000, Jonathan Toews in 2007, Henri Jokiharju and Kaapo Kakko in 2019.

One player won the gold from senior championship one year sooner than junior gold: Patrice Bergeron (2005 and 2004).
