Tkachuk served as captain of the gold medal-winning U.S. Under-18 Men’s National Team at the 2017 IIHF Under-18 Men’s World Championship and is the current captain of the NHL’s Ottawa Senators.

Team USA faces Sweden at Ostravar Arena here tomorrow (May 10) at 8:20 p.m. local/2:20 p.m. ET in its first of seven preliminary round games at the 2024 IIHF Men’s World Championship. All U.S. games will be carried live exclusively by NHL Network.

Additionally, Brock Nelson (Warroad, Minn./New York Islanders), Seth Jones (Frisco, Texas/Chicago Blackhawks), and Zach Werenski (Grosse Pointe, Mich./Columbus Blue Jackets) have been named the team’s alternate captains.
