Dale Hunter has been selected as Canada's head coach for the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship, Hockey Canada announced on Tuesday.

Hunter has spent 18 seasons as owner, president, and head coach of the OHL's London Knights, leading the team to five Memorial Cup appearances, including titles in 2005 and 2016. He captured OHL coach of the year honors in 2004, 2005, and 2010, and was named CHL coach of the year in 2004.

The 58-year-old has only coached on the international stage once, winning a gold medal as head coach of Canada’s under-18 team at the 2013 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup.

Rugby Canada fires sevens coach Damian McGrath, names Henry Paul interim coach Rugby Canada has fired men's sevens coach Damian McGrath with the English veteran the odd man out in a revamped leadership structure. Henry Paul, an assistant coach with the men's 15s team, has been named interim sevens coach. The Canadian men currently stand 12th in the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series with two tournaments remaining in the season. The Canadian men will look to secure a berth at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics at a North American qualifying tournament in July in the Cayman Islands.

Ottawa 67's head coach Andre Tourigny and Saskatoon Blades head coach Mitch Love will join Hunter as assistant coaches.

Canada finished sixth at the world juniors in 2019, the team's second sixth-place finish in four years. With just two gold medals at the event this decade, Canada is looking to get back on top of the national junior stage.

The Raptors head coach, who has his team in the NBA final after one year at the helm, is poised to become the next head coach of Canada’s senior men’s team. NBA sources confirmed reports from RDS and The Canadian Press on Sunday that the 51-year-old Nurse will eventually be named as the successor to Jay Triano as Canada’s head coach. There was no on-the-record confirmation on Sunday nor will any come before Toronto’s season ends after the championship series that begins at the Scotiabank Centre on Thursday. “All I can say is no comment,” Canada Basketball chief executive officer Glen Grunwald said via text.
