Spokane Chiefs’ defenseman Ty Smith wore the “C” as team captain for Team Canada this morning as the Canadians opened the 2018 IIHF U18 World Championship tournament with a 6-4 win over Team USA.

Smith, ranked 14th among all North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting ahead of June’s 2018 NHL Entry Draft, is no stranger to wearing a letter. He served as an alternate captain for the Chiefs during the 2017-18 season and has worn a letter at many international tournaments, including captain of Canada’s Youth Winter Olympic Games in 2016 and alternate captain of Canada’s squad at the 2017 U18 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup. Smith also served as captain of Team Orr at the 2018 CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.
