Corey Perry will serve as the captain for Team Canada in the 2016 World Championships.

This is a chance for Perry to enter the summer on a high note after his disappointing 2016 playoff run. He had no goals and four assists in seven playoff games as his Anaheim Ducks were eliminated in the first round. Matt Duchene and Ryan O'Reilly will both wear the 'A'.

It's not clear what the New York Islanders' plans are for Ryan Strome going into Game 4 on Friday.

Strome was a healthy scratch Tuesday for the third time in the 2016 postseason. "When you go up and down the lineup — and I’m looking at it now — you’ve got tough decisions to make on a daily basis," Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. "Overall, Ryan knows what he needs to do to play better, but it’s not like he’s played poorly. It’s a numbers game right now, too. I’ve had plenty of talks with Ryan. I talked to him down in Tampa. … He realizes what he needs to do. I feel like I have a really good relationship with Ryan and when he gets back in there …" Capuano didn't complete that sentence. In the six games Strome has participated in, he has a goal and four points.

After being fired by the Calgary Flames, Bob Hartley made it clear he'll be looking for another coaching job.

"Obviously coaching is my passion, coaching is in my blood," said Hartley. "There’s no doubt that I want to coach. I’m only 55 years old and I believe that I’m in great shape. I love this game. I love teaching. I love competing to win hockey games." Calgary only made the playoffs once over his four campaigns with the club, but Hartley still has an impressive resume. He's got 944 games as a head coach under his belt with a 463-361-61-59 record, won a championship with Colorado in 2001, and was the 2015 Jack Adams Award winner.

Mark Scheifele believes "the more hockey you play, the better you are" so he jumped at the chance to compete in the World Championship with Team Canada.

"Well, I'm a hockey player," he said. "I want to play as much as I can. Obviously, you want to be playing at this time of year, in the Stanley Cup playoffs and fighting your way with your club team through the playoffs. When you're not doing that, you want to be playing and to be able to represent your country, come overseas and play in this tournament, you can learn a lot of things from it." He suited up for Canada in 2014, where he notched two goals and four assists in eight games. Scheifele recorded career highs in 2015-16 with 29 goals and 61 points in 71 games.
