Bill Peters' summer vacation will have to wait.

The Carolina Hurricanes bench boss will coach Team Canada at the upcoming World Championship in Denmark.

St. Louis Blues coach Mike Yeo and Florida Panthers bench boss Bob Boughner, who will serve as associate and assistant coach, respectively, will join Peters' coaching staff.

This year's tournament marks the third World Championship for Peters, and his second time as head coach. Peters guided Canada to a gold-medal finish in 2016.

Peters, 53, has spent the past four seasons with the Hurricanes after a three-year stint as an assistant with the Detroit Red Wings.

The 2018 World Championship begins May 4.
