Playing for his country for the fourth time in his career -- won a gold medal for Canada at the 2005 World Junior Championship and a silver medal at the 2004 World Junior.
Played on one of the all-time great Canadian teams at the 2005 World Junior Championship -- along with fellow 2010 Olympians Sidney Crosby, Shea Weber, Patrice Bergeron, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and Mike Richards.
