New Westminster forward Brenden Bissett is looking to earn his 23rd international cap for Canada at the World League semifinals.
The international field hockey Olympic qualifying tournament starts today (June 3) in Buenos Aires, Argentina and runs until June 14.
The top three finishing teams from the World League qualifier will earn berths to the 2016 Olympic Summer Games in Rio de Janeiro.
Canada, ranked 14th in the world, will also have a second opportunity to earn a berth at the Summer Games by winning a gold medal at the Pan American Games in Toronto later this summer.
In Buenos Aires, Canada is grouped with Austria, Germany, Spain, and host Argentina in Pool B.
Pool A consists of Egypt, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands and New Zealand.
Canada will open the World League semifinals against Spain on Wednesday.
The Maple Leaf will then take on Austria on Thursday, Argentina on Saturday before finishing off with Germany on Sunday.
Burnaby forward Gabriel Ho-Garcia, who has earned 49 international caps for Canada, is also a member of the 18-player squad.
