This will be Tourigny’s first time serving as head coach of the under-20 Canada team after being an assistant at four previous tournaments. He replaces Dale Hunter, current head coach of the London Knights.

The Nicolet, Quebec native began his coaching career in 1998 as an assistant for the Shawinigan Cataractes. He joined the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in 2002, where he spent more than a decade as head coach and general manager. In 2005-2006, he was the recipient of the QMJHL Ron Lapointe Coach of the Year Award, and in 2007-2008 he coached the Huskies to a league-best 47-20-2-1 record.



Tourigny spent two seasons as the defensive coach for the Colorado Avalanche before going to the Ottawa Senators as an assistant coach. He then worked the 2016-2017 season as head coach of the Halifax Mooseheads before going to the 67's.
