Dylan Cozens and Jack Quinn have been selected to Canada's roster for the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship, Hockey Canada announced Friday.
Cozens, Buffalo's first-round pick in 2019, was a key player on Canada's gold medal winning team at last year's tournament, where he embraced a net-front role on the power play and tallied nine points in (2+7) in seven games.
