Carolina’s Bill Peters will be the head coach of Team Canada’s entry at the 2016 World Championship.

The Hurricanes’ head coach will be assisted by Senators head coach Dave Cameron and former Wild bench boss Mike Yeo, along with Hockey Canada’s Misha Donskov.

“This group brings experience and a continuity that will serve us well not only at worlds, but as we look toward the World Cup of Hockey in September,” said Tom Renney, president and CEO of Hockey Canada, in a release. “There’s been a lot of work done over the last month by the management team to put this coaching staff into place, and more to come as we start pulling together our roster, but I’m confident with the direction and the staff as we look to defend our championship title in May.”

Peters has already been named to Mike Babcock’s Team Canada staff for the World Cup.

Canada’s gold-medal winning team in 2015 was coached by Todd McLellan.

The 2016 tournament will be held in Russia.
