The Czech Republic Ice Hockey Federation announced on Monday that Tomas Plekanec will serve as team captain during the World Cup of Hockey Tournament this September.

This will be the fourth time the Habs centerman will don the "C" for the Czechs on the international scene, having previously done so at the 2014 Olympics in Sochi and at the 2012 and 2016 World Championships.

Plekanec will be suiting up for his 15th international competition with the Czech team when the World Cup of Hockey kicks off.
