Bill Peters named Team Canada coach for men's world hockey championship
Mike Yeo, Dave Cameron also named to coaching staff
Carolina Hurricanes head coach Bill Peters will lead Canada's coaching staff at the 2016 men's world hockey championship.
Hockey Canada announced the coaching roster on Tuesday.
Peters will be joined by Ottawa Senators head coach Dave Cameron, former Minnesota Wild head coach Mike Yeo, and Hockey Canada's Misha Donskov, who will support as assistant coaches. Toronto Maple Leafs assistant coach Andrew Brewer rounds out the staff as the team's video coach.
"This [coaching staff] brings experience and a continuity that will serve us well not only at worlds, but as we look toward the World Cup of hockey in September," Tom Renney, president and CEO of Hockey Canada, said in a statement.
"There's been a lot of work done over the last month by the management team to put this coaching staff into place, and more to come as we start pulling together our roster, but I'm confident with the direction and the staff as we look to defend our championship title in May."
Peters is in his second season as head coach of Carolina. He spent three seasons as an assistant coach with the Detroit Red Wings.
