Getzlaf Named Captain of Team Canada for 2012 IIHF World Championships
Getzlaf

Ducks center Ryan Getzlaf has been named the captain for Team Canada at the 2012 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championships.

The Regina, Saskatchewan native, who is also serves as the captain of Anaheim, is one of three players on the Canadian roster who won a gold medal for the country at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. The others are fellow Ducks forward Corey Perry and Chicago defenseman Duncan Keith.

"It was a nice honor to be named that," Getzlaf said. "It's always something that you kind of strive for. I look forward to the challenge of the tournament. We've got a whole group of leaders and you've just got to kind of lead by example and make sure we're doing the right things."

Getzlaf just completed his seventh NHL season in 2011-12. He played in all 82 games for the second time in his career and led the Ducks with 46 assists, to go along with 57 points. For his career, he has amassed 472 points (137 goals, 335 assists) in 512 contests.

If he and Team Canada can capture the gold medal in Helsinki, Getzlaf would become the first player to win a Stanley Cup and gold medals at every major international tournament - the World Championships, World Junior Championships and World Under-18 Championships.
