By The Canadian Press on May 15, 2019.

KOSICE, Slovakia – Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Philippe Myers has been added to Canada’s roster for the world hockey championship.

Canada (2-1) lost a blue-liner on Wednesday when Brandon Montour was declared out for the tournament with a lower-body injury.

Myers, a native of Moncton, N.B., had one goal and one assist in 21 games in his first NHL season with the Philadelphia Flyers in 2018-19. He had previous experience playing for Canada at the 2017 world junior championship.

Canada returns to action on Thursday against France.
