Breaking news announcement from the Canadiens regarding Joel Armia

We have just learned that the Canadiens' forward, Joel Armia, has been confirmed to represent Finland in the upcoming Ice Hockey World Championship.

He will therefore participate for the second consecutive time in this event, as he performed very well last year with a harvest of five goals and eight points in 10 games.
