The New Westminster, B.C., native joins a Canadian side that currently sits in fourth place in Group B with a 3-1-1 record, with losses to the United States in a shootout and a 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Finland Saturday.
Turris finished with 16 goals and 51 points split between the Ottawa Senators and Predators this season, but only managed three points for Nashville during its post-season run that was cut short by Winnipeg in the second round.
The 28-year-old was traded to Nashville as part of a three-team swap that also included the Colorado Avalanche and saw Matt Duchene land in Ottawa.
Despite being just fourth in the group, Team Canada has still managed to qualify for the quarterfinals of the world championship. Canada will close out the group stage Tuesday against Germany.
