Blue Jackets prospects Jordan Dumais and Denton Mateychuk will represent Team Canada at the 2024 World Juniors in Sweden, Hockey Canada announced Wednesday.

This year's tournament is in Gothenburg, Sweden, and will begin on Dec. 26 and conclude on Jan. 5 with the gold-medal game.

Both Dumais and Mateychuk will be playing in the World Juniors for the first time, and they've certainly earned their spots.

Dumais has posted 16-31--47 in 21 games and leads the QMJHL with 2.44 points per game, while Mateychuk leads WHL defensemen with 1.46 points per game.

Canada will begin their quest for a third-straight title on Dec. 26 when they face Finland.
