Team Canada has added Anaheim Ducks winger Corey Perry to its World Cup roster.

Perry replaces Los Angeles Kings winger Jeff Carter, who will miss the tournament with a reported "week-to-week" lower-body injury, according to Kings Insider's Jon Rosen.

Most recently, Perry was part of the Canadian squad at the 2016 World Championship. He recorded nine points in 10 games en route to the gold.

Perry has enjoyed success on the international stage, with four gold medals to his name, including two Olympic titles. He had one assist in six games in Sochi in 2014.

The 31-year-old has scored 30 or more goals in each of his last three NHL seasons. He had 34 in 2015-16, and added 28 assists, finishing second on the Ducks in scoring.
