Benoit Groulx was announced Thursday as coach of Canada for the 2015 IIHF World Junior Championship.
Groulx, who coaches the Gatineau Olympiques of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, was an assistant to coach Brent Sutter on Canada's 2014 WJC team that finished fourth after losing to Russia in the bronze-medal game.
That loss marked the second straight WJC Canada finished without a medal, following a loss to Russia in the bronze-medal game in 2013. With Montreal and Toronto hosting the 2015 WJC, there will be considerable pressure on Groulx. In the history of the tournament, which dates to 1977, Canada never has gone three straight tournaments without a medal.
Groulx had been named coach of the 2009 WJC team for Canada but resigned to instead coach the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League.
Hockey Canada announced a summer evaluation camp will be held Aug. 3-9 in the Montreal area. The camp will feature practices and exhibition games against the Czech Republic and Russia in Brossard, Sherbrooke and at Concordia University.
The 2015 WJC will be held Dec. 26 to Jan. 5, 2014. Canada will play in Group A, along with defending champion Finland, Germany, Slovakia and the United States, and play its preliminary-round games at Bell Centre in Montreal.
Group B will consist of Czech Republic, Denmark, Russia, Sweden and Switzerland, and play its preliminary-round games at Air Canada Centre in Toronto.
The semifinals and the bronze- and gold-medal games will be played in Toronto.
