Just because the Winnipeg Jets are not participating in the 2022 Stanley Cup Playoffs, doesn’t mean some of their players will miss out on spring hockey as forwards Adam Lowry and Pierre-Luc Dubois will represent Canada at the 2022 IIHF World Championship.
On Monday, Lowry and Dubois were officially named to Team Canada’s roster, marking the first time that both skaters will be attending this tournament, which is being held in Finland this month.

Dubois, 23, has played for Team Canada in the past, suiting up for his country during the 2017 World Juniors. In that event, Canada secured a silver medal with Dubois scoring five assists in seven games.
In 81 games this past season, Dubois posted 28 goals and 60 points in 81 games. Lowry, 29, recorded 13 goals and 21 points across 79 games in 2021-22.
Canada, who won gold last year and is seeking to win a second straight this year, will open the tournament against Germany on May 13.
Along with Dubios and Lowry, defenceman Nate Schmidt will also represent his respective country, the United States of America. In addition, forward Nikolaj Ehlers has been named to Denmark’s roster.
The 2022 IIHF World Championship is slated to begin on May 13 and will conclude on May 29.
