Brady Tkachuk named captain of Team USA

Brady Tkachuk Senators

Brady Tkachuk on Thursday was named the captain of the 2024 U.S. team for the IIHF Men’s World Hockey Championship.

Tkachuk, who is the captain of the Ottawa Senators, will wear the “C” for Team USA when it plays Sweden on Friday in Ostrava, Czechia.

New York Islanders forward Brock Nelson, Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Seth Jones and Columbus Blue Jackets blueliner Zach Werenski will serve as alternate captains for Team USA.

“We’ve got a great leadership group, and, in the end, everyone will have to lead in their own way for us to be successful,” Team USA head coach John Hynes said. “We’re excited about our team and look forward to starting play in the world championship (on Friday).”

Tkachuk, 24, scored a career-high 37 goals to go along with 37 assists in 81 games this season with the Senators.

He will be playing in his first IIHF Men’s World Championship. He served as captain of the gold medal-winning U.S. team at the 2017 IIHF Under-18 Men’s World Championship.
