Boughner Named To Team Canada

Windsor native Bob Boughner will be part of the Team Canada coaching staff for next month's World Hockey Championship in Denmark.

The Florida Panthers head coach will be an associate to Bill Peters, head coach of the Carolina Hurricanes.

Hockey Canada also announced Monday that St. Louis Blues head coach Mike Yeo will serve as the other associate coach.

This is the second time Peters has taken on the role - he led Canada to gold at the 2016 worlds after helping the country also top the podium as an assistant in 2015.

Canada, which finished second last spring, opens this year's tournament May 4 against the United States.
