Hockey Canada has added defenceman Jorian Donovan to its pre-tournament camp for the world junior men’s hockey championship.

The move comes after defenceman Tanner Molendyk sustained an upper-body injury Friday in a tune-up game against Switzerland.

Donovan has not yet been added to the team’s roster for the tournament, which runs from Dec. 26 to Jan. 5 in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The 19-year-old Donovan, son of former NHL player Shean Donovan, was drafted in the fifth round, 136th overall, by the Ottawa Senators in 2022.

The Calgarian has eight goals and 18 assists in 31 games with the Ontario Hockey League’s Hamilton Bulldogs this season.

Canada’s next game is an exhibition against the United States on Saturday. The Canadians begin tournament play on Boxing Day against Finland.
