STOCKHOLM, Sweden – Hockey Canada, along with executive director Steve Yzerman and Canada’s National Men’s Team management group, announced a roster addition for the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship on Monday.  

Canada will add defencemen P.K. Subban (Toronto, Ont./Montreal, NHL), who will arrive in Sweden on Tuesday.

Canada now has 24 players on its roster, including three goaltenders, nine defencemen and 12 forwards. All teams are allowed up to 25 players on their world championship roster, and players can be added up until one hour prior to the final game. 

Canada can dress 20 skaters and two goaltenders for games.

Subban, who turns 24 today, tied with Pittsburgh’s Kristopher Letang for the lead in scoring among all NHL defencemen in 2012-13, with 38 points, and is a finalist for the Norris Trophy, awarded to the NHL’s top defenceman. Subban played for Canada at the 2008 and 2009 IIHF World Junior Championships, winning gold twice. He was originally named to Canada’s roster for the 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship, but was unable to play due to injury.    

Canada has a record of four wins and one overtime loss record to date in preliminary round play, and will face Slovenia in its final round robin game today, May 13, at 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT. Canada’s games at the 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship are all broadcast live by TSN and RDS, the official broadcasters of Hockey Canada. Check local listings for the broadcast time in your area.

Hockey Canada’s National Men’s Team management group is comprised of Yzerman (Nepean, Ont./Tampa Bay, NHL), along with Doug Armstrong (Sarnia, Ont./St. Louis, NHL), Ken Holland (Vernon, B.C./Detroit, NHL), Kevin Lowe (Lachute, Que./Edmonton, NHL), Bob Nicholson (Penticton, B.C./Hockey Canada) and Brad Pascall (Coquitlam, B.C./Hockey Canada). Peter Chiarelli (Ottawa, Ont./Boston, NHL) is serving in an advisory capacity.

The management group is overseeing all operations for Canada’s National Men’s Team at the world championship, including staff selection, player identification and selection as well as team operations. Hockey Canada’s senior director of national teams and hockey operations, Scott Salmond, oversees team logistics, working closely with the management group.

Head coach Lindy Ruff (Warburg, Alta.) leads the coaching staff, along with assistant coaches Doug Shedden (Wallaceburg, Ont./EV Zug, SUI), Dave Tippett (Moosomin, Sask./Phoenix, NHL) and Barry Trotz (Dauphin, Man./Nashville, NHL). 

The 2013 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship runs from May 3-19 in Helsinki, Finland, and Stockholm, Sweden. Canada will be based out of Stockholm for the duration of the event.
