Since making his first international appearance in 2005 versus Scotland, Scott Tupper has played more than 200 games for Canada. He is one of two men on the 2015 national team who competed at Beijing 2008 Olympic Games. Just 21 at the time, Tupper was the second-youngest member of the squad.

He went on to become captain of the Men’s National Team, a title he still holds, and lead them to an incredible year in 2015. Canada finished fourth at the World League Round 4, qualifying for the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil, and took silver at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto, Canada. Tupper also led the team to a Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualification and subsequent 11th place finish.

A four-time Pan American Games team member, Tupper also helped Canada win gold at Rio 2007 and silver at Guadalajara 2011. Tupper ended the 2011 tournament tied for the scoring lead with nine goals. Tupper’s multi-sport competition experience also includes the 2010, 2014 and 2018 Commonwealth Games.

He has played club hockey abroad in Germany and Belgium, winning the German Club Championship in 2011. He coaches hockey in the NCAA.
