St. Louis Blues general manager Doug Armstrong has been named the GM for the 2026 Canadian men's Olympic hockey team, Hockey Canada announced Friday.

He was also named the management group lead for the Canadian national men's team for the next two years.

Armstrong, 59, has been the Blues' general manager since 2010, winning the Stanley Cup in 2019. He won two Olympic gold medals as part of the management group for Team Canada in 2010 and 2014 and won the 2016 World Cup of Hockey championship as general manager.

Along with putting together the staff and players for the 2026 Olympics in Italy -- the first for NHL players since the 2014 Sochi Games -- Armstrong will oversee the construction of Canada's Four Nations Face-Off team, an NHL and NHLPA tournament scheduled for next February.

Armstrong will also oversee Team Canada at the 2024 and 2025 IIHF world championships.

Joining Armstrong on Team Canada's executive committee is Ryan Getzlaf, the former Anaheim Ducks star who will serve as player relations adviser. He retired from the NHL in 2022.

Getzlaf will work directly with Armstrong and Scott Salmond, senior vice president of high performance and hockey operations. He will act as a liaison between athletes, the executive committee and management groups.
