HELSINKI — Ottawa Senators defenceman Thomas Chabot has been named Team Canada's captain for the 2022 men's hockey world championship.

Montreal Canadiens right-winger Josh Anderson, New Jersey Devils defenceman Damon Severson as well as Winnipeg Jets centres Pierre-Luc Dubois and Adam Lowry will be Canada's alternate captains.

"It is always special to be able to wear the Maple Leaf, and it is a true honour to be named captain for the world championship," said Chabot. "Josh, Pierre-Luc, Adam and Damon are great leaders and players, and I look forward to serving on the leadership group with them.

"Our entire team is excited to play for Canada, and we will represent the country with pride as we look to defend last year’s gold medal.”

Canada will face Germany on Friday in Helsinki in its first game of the tournament.

The Canadians will also face Italy, Slovakia, Kazakhstan, Switzerland, Denmark and France in the preliminary round before the tournament concludes with the medal games on May 29.

Canada is the defending champion after defeating Finland 3-2 in overtime last year.
