The tournament runs from May 12th to May 28th and takes place between Tampere, Finland, and Riga, Latvia.
Laughton is coming off a career-season with the Flyers, scoring 18 goals and 25 assists for 43 points in 78 contests. He also tied with Travis Konecny for the team-lead in shorthanded goals (3) and led the club in faceoff winning percentage (47.26%).
The Oakville, Ontario has played internationally in the past at the junior level, suiting up for the 2011 World U-17 Hockey Challenge, the 2012 World U18 Junior Championship, and the 2014 World Junior Championship, where he served as captain for the Canadians in a fourth-place effort.
Laughton is now the third Flyer to be announced as a participant in the tournament, as Ronnie Attard and Cutter Gauthier were named to the United States’ roster yesterday.
