Jaden Schwartz named Captain of Canada's National Junior Team

BANFF, Alta. – Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Hockey League (CHL), announced Thursday that Jaden Schwartz (Wilcox, Sask./Colorado College, WCHA) has been named captain of Canada’s National Junior Team at the 2012 IIHF World Junior Championship.

LINK to the rest of the story.

The Toronto Globe and Mail had this to say about the announcement:

As expected, Jaden Schwartz - one of only four returning players from last year’s squad - has been named captain of Canada’s world junior hockey team.
Schwartz saw his tournament end prematurely last year because of a broken ankle, suffered in the second game against the Czech Republic. He will be supported by four assistant captains, Brett Connolly and Quinton Howden, both of whom also played on last year’s silver-medal winning team and two newcomers, Devante Smith-Pelly and Brandon Gormley.
Schwartz joins Alex Pietrangelo as the second member of the St. Louis Blues’ organization to be named captain in the past three years. The 19-year-old Schwartz plays for the NCAA’s Colorado College, and is the only U.S. collegian to make the cut for Team Canada this year. He has 18 points in 13 games thus far this year.
