CALGARY – Dave Cameron will be back behind the Canadian bench at the 2025 world junior hockey championship.

Hockey Canada announced Thursday that Cameron will serve as head coach as it revealed its team staff for the upcoming tournament in Ottawa.

Cameron, the head coach of the Ontario Hockey League’s Ottawa 67’s, was head coach of the Canadian team that won the junior title in 2022.

Canada lost in the quarterfinals of the 2024 championship in Gothenburg, Sweden, following back-to-back gold medals.

Sylvain Favreau, Mike Johnston and Chris Lazary will serve as assistant coaches on a staff that includes goaltending consultant Justin Pogge and video coach James Emery.

Hockey Canada also announced that Peter Anholt will return to lead the team’s management group, while three-time Stanley Cup champion and Olympic gold medallist Brent Seabrook also returns in a management role.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published July 4, 2024.
