CALGARY, Alta. – Jim Nill, general manager of Canada’s National Men’s Team, announced Sunday, in collaboration with Hockey Canada, that Sidney Crosby (Cole Harbour, N.S./Pittsburgh, NHL) has been added to the Team Canada roster for the 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship.

With the addition of Crosby, Canada’s roster now stands at 21 players: two goaltenders, five defenceman and 14 forwards.

Crosby will represent Canada for the seventh time in international competition. He most recently captained Canada to a gold medal at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, and scored the overtime winner to win Olympic gold at the 2010 Games in Vancouver, B.C.

Crosby played in his first world championship in 2006, leading the tournament in scoring and earning Top Forward honours, and played at two IIHF World Junior Championships, winning gold at the 2005 World Juniors in Grand Forks, N.D., and silver in 2004.

He made his international debut with Canada’s National Men’s Summer Under-18 Team at the 2003 Junior World Cup, winning a gold medal and leading the team in scoring as an under-age player.

Canada opens the 2015 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship against Latvia on May 1. It will also face Austria, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Sweden and Switzerland in preliminary round play.
