LETHBRIDGE, AB – Lethbridge Hurricanes Captain Dylan Cozens is heading back to the IIHF World Junior Championship.

Hockey Canada announced its 25 man roster Friday for the 2021 competition that’s set to be played in Edmonton from Dec. 25 to Jan. 5.

Cozens helped Canada earn a gold medal at last year’s World Juniors in the Czech Republic. He’s one of six returning players.

Cozens is also the first Lethbridge Hurricane to represent Canada in back-to-back World Junior Championships since Zach Boychuk won gold medals in 2008 and 2009.

Team Canada begins its gold medal defense on Boxing Day against Germany.
