Corey Perry, Derick Brassard and defenseman Matt Dumba will all be joining Team Canada at the 2016 World Championship, Hockey Canada announced Thursday.
It was also revealed by the Star Tribune’s Michael Russo that invites were extended to Wild defensemen Marco Scandella and Jared Spurgeon, but both declined due to injury.
Perry, whose Ducks were eliminated by the Nashville Predators on Wednesday, has the opportunity to join the Triple Gold Club if Canada can defend their gold from last year. He is one of 11 Canadians who could join the exclusive club with a gold medal at the World Championship. He’s the only one of those 11 that is participating in this year’s tournament.

Perry put up 34 goals and 62 points this season, in what started as a very trying year and ended with another Game 7 loss.

Dumba, a 21-year-old defender for the Minnesota Wild, hit career-high marks with 10 goals and 26 points this season.
