Great Britain Under-18s have named their captaincy team for the IIHF World Championship in Tallinn.

Jack Hopkins has been named captain with Oliver Endicott and Mack Stewart appointed alternate captains.

GB get their Division II Group A campaign under way tomorrow against hosts Estonia.

Head Coach, Sean Easton, said: “It was a tough selection process as there are a lot of candidates to wear a letter on this team.

“Hoppo (Jack Hopkins) and Oli (Oliver Endicott) have the experience from the under-20s and have been and will continue to pass that on through the team.

“Mack (Stewart) is a great character for the room and has the experience of training and playing with the Giants.”

After tomorrow’s opener against Estonia, GB face Romania (Tuesday), Korea (Wednesday), Serbia (Friday) and Lithuania (Saturday).
