October 24, 2016

CALGARY, Alta. – Hockey Canada and Team Canada general manager, Sean Burke (Windsor, Ont./Montreal, NHL), have added forwards Trevor Parkes (Fort Erie, Ont./Augsburger Panther, DEL) and Nick Petersen (Wakefield, Que./Eisbären Berlin, DEL) to the roster for the 2016 Deutschland Cup, Nov. 4-6.

Parkes and Petersen bring the Canadian roster to 24 players. Ben Maxwell (North Vancouver, B.C./HC Sochi, KHL), named as part of the original 23-player roster on Oct. 19, is unable to participate due to injury.

Team Canada gathers in Budapest, Hungary, Oct. 31-Nov. 2 for a pre-competition camp before making its way to Augsburg, Germany, to compete in the Deutschland Cup.

Earlier this month, Hockey Canada announced the return of Dave King (Saskatoon, Sask.) to Team Canada as head coach of the Deutschland Cup squad; King will lead the coaching staff which also comprises assistant coaches Mike Pelino (Welland, Ont.), Luke Richardson (Ottawa), and Mike Stewart (Calgary).

This will be the red-and-white’s first appearance at the Deutschland Cup since 2014.

Canada has taken part in the tournament on 17 occasions (1992-2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014), winning four gold medals (2000, 2002, 2005, 2008).

Canada’s National Men’s Team opens the Deutschland Cup on Nov. 4 against Switzerland; the team plays Slovakia on Nov. 5, and Germany on Nov. 6.
