Martin Brodeur and Sean Burke will select the Canadian hockey squad that will go for gold at the 2018 IIHF World Championship in Denmark.
Burke put together the Canadian team that won bronze at the Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea last month. Brodeur was Burke's assistant.
The tournament takes place in Copenhagen and Herning from May 4-20. Canada kicks off action against the United States May 4 in Herning.
Tom Renney, CEO of Hockey Canada, said the two former NHL goaltenders and Canadian Olympians were invaluable to the national team's success in Pyeongchang.
"As an organization, to see former players who have represented us on the world stage come back and contribute to our international success at the management level reinforces just how special it is to be part of Team Canada," he said in a release.
"It also speaks to the character of the players we select to be part of the program that they want to give back to the national team beyond their playing careers. Their experiences also lend themselves to creating the best environment for our coaches and players to thrive and succeed, because they have been there and know what it takes to be successful."
Canada last won gold at the 2016 world championship after successfully defending its 2015 title.
Burke, 51, serves as a professional scout with the Montreal Canadiens. He was the assistant general manager on the Canadian team that won silver at last year's world championship. He also had stints as the director of prospect development, goaltending coach and assistant to the general manager with the Arizona Coyotes.
The Windsor, Ont., native played on Canada's 1988 and 1992 Olympic teams and won 324 games during his NHL career.
Brodeur, 45, is the assistant general manager of the St. Louis Blues.
He is a three-time Stanley Cup winner two-time Olympic gold medallist with Canada (2002, 2010). He won the Vezina Trophy four times in his 22-year NHL career.
