The Goon sequel has added some more Canadian content.

According to a story The Hollywood Reporter, Elisha Cuthbert, the wife of Toronto Maple Leafs defenseman Dion Phaneuf, has signed on to co-star in Goon: Last of the Enforcers.

The sequel to the 2011 indie gem is set to begin filming on June 21 in Toronto.

Cuthbert, best known for her roles in 24, The Girl Next Door, and Happy Endings, will play the sister of Alison Pill’s character, Eva.

Seann William Scott returns as gentle-hearted enforcer Doug “The Thug” Glatt, whose Halifax Highlanders add several new—and presumably conflict-creating—players during a pro lockout.

The story also confirmed that Liev Schrieber, whose dulcet tones have become a staple of NHL films, will be back for another turn as Ross “The Boss” Rhea.

Jay Baruchel, who co-wrote the original film and starred as Glatt's best friend, will also serve as director this time around.
