An Okotokian has been named to Canada's 2023 IIHF World Championship roster.

Peyton Krebs will wear the maple leaf in Finland and Latvia later this month.

He's one of 20 players recently named to Team Canada.

Two of Krebs' Buffalo Sabres teammates, goalie Devon Levi and fellow forward Jack Quinn, are also on the roster.

Krebs just came off his first full NHL season with 26 points over 74 games.

The last time he played on a national team was in the 2021 World Juniors.

Other Albertans on the roster are Tyler Myers of Calgary and Jake Neighbours from Airdrie.
