Hockey Canada announced via Twitter (@HC_Men) on Friday that Erie Otters defenceman Jamie Drysdale will captain Canada’s National Summer Under-18 Team next week at the 2019 Hlinka Gretzky Cup in Breclav, Czech Republic and Piestany, Slovakia.

Drysdale, 17, comes off an impressive rookie campaign that saw him produce 40 points (7-33–40) over 63 games from the Otters blue line, setting a new franchise record for points by a rookie defenceman.

The fourth overall pick of the 2018 OHL Priority Selection, Drysdale hails from Toronto, Ont. and was named to the OHL’s First All-Rookie Team this past season.

Joining Drysdale on Team Canada’s leadership team are Edmonton Oil Kings forward Jake Neighbours and Prince Albert Raiders defenceman Kaiden Guhle.

Canada begins its quest for a third straight gold medal finish at the Hlinka Gretzky Cup on Monday morning, taking on Finland at 9:30am ET.
