CALGARY – Canada added defenceman Ethan Del Mastro to the roster for the upcoming IIHF world junior hockey championships.
Del Mastro recently played his third season with the Ontario Hockey League’s Mississauga Steelheads, where he served as captain and registered 48 points (seven goals, 41 assists) in 68 regular-season games.
He helped Canada’s under-18 team to gold at the 2021 IIHF U18 world championships.
Hockey Canada also announced Sunday that Daemon Hunt of Brandon, Man., won’t play in the tournament, which opens Tuesday in Edmonton, due to injury.
Canada plays Sweden in a pre-tournament game on Monday. The Canadians open the tournament on Wednesday against Latvia.
