After serving as an assistant coach this year for Canada’s gold medal-winning team, André Tourigny has earned a promotion for the 2021 world junior hockey championship.

The native of Nicolet, Que., will be Canada’s head coach at the tournament, Dec. 26, 2020-Jan. 5, 2021, in Edmonton and Red Deer, Alta.

Tourigny, the head coach/vice-president of hockey operations for the Canadian Hockey League’s top-ranked Ottawa 67’s, was an assistant under Dale Hunter this year as Canada captured gold earlier this month in the Czech Republic.

Tourigny spent four seasons as an assistant coach in the NHL with the Colorado Avalanche and Ottawa Senators.
