{allcanada} Claude Giroux named captain for Canada at world hockey championship


Just a day before preliminary action begins, Canada has named forward Claude Giroux the captain for the IIHF World Championship.

The 29-year-old has captained the Philadelphia Flyers for the past five seasons and will look to lead Canada to its third consecutive gold medal.

Joining Giroux as part of the leadership group are alternate captains Matt Duchene, Ryan O'Reilly and Marc-Édouard Vlasic. All four players won gold for Canada at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey.

Canada's opening contest is against the Czech Republic on Friday, May 5.
