Hockey Canada announced the Canadian roster for the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championships in Edmonton, which will start on Christmas day and end on Tuesday, January 5, and Washington Capitals center prospect Connor McMichael was among the last picks to make the team.

The 19-year-old, who was selected 25th overall in the 2019 NHL Draft by the Capitals, recorded 47 goals, 102 points, and a +32 rating in 52 games with the OHL’s London Knights last season.

He recorded five goals and seven points in seven games at last year’s World Junior Championship for Hockey Canada.

Capitals center prospect Hendrix Lapierre, whom the team selected 25th overall in the 2020 NHL Draft, was among the final cuts from Hockey Canada on Thursday.
