'Captain Canada' is going to the IIHF Hockey Hall of Fame.

Former NHL forward Ryan Smyth, who wore the 'C' for Canada at the World Championship more than any other player in tournament history, is among five players and one builder who will be inducted this spring.

Smyth, who played 19 NHL seasons with the Edmonton Oilers, New York Islanders, Los Angeles Kings and Colorado Avalanche, won gold for Canada at the World Junior Championship (1995), World Championship (2003, 2004), Olympics (2002), World Cup (2004), and Spengler Cup (2012).
