Oshawa Generals captain Scott Laughton has been named captain for Team Canada at the World Juniors. The Philadelphia Flyers prospect will be assisted by Jonathan Drouin and Matt Dumba when the tournament opens on December 26 in Malmo Sweden.
“It’s a huge honour for me,” Laughton told reporters this morning. “I’m an older and with my pro experience and things like that I knew I was going to be a leader on this team, whether I did get a letter or not.”
Laughton played five games with the Flyers this season before being sent back to the OHL. While he didn’t score in the NHL, the 19-year-old is currently eighth in the OHL with 50 points in 29 games, including 24 goals.
