Sukhi Panesar made his senior national team debut in 2010. The highlight of his junior career was competing at the 2013 Junior Hockey World Cup in New Delhi. That same year, he was part of the Canadian team that won silver at the Pan American Cup. In 2014 he competed at the Commonwealth Games and at the Champions Challenge 1 in Malaysia, where Canada finished second in the tournament that was a qualifier for the Champions Trophy.

In 2015, Panesar was a key part of the midfield when Canada qualified for the 2016 Olympic Games via the World League competition, and also captured silver at the Pan American Games. In 2019, Panesar again played a critical role in the team’s qualification for the Tokyo 2020 Games.

Sukhi’s brother, Balraj also plays on the Men’s National Team.
