Team Canada General Manager Steve Yzerman continued to express confidence in Phaneuf during a summer camp held in Calgary, but Phaneuf was not among the seven defencemen ultimately selected for the team.

He was traded to Los Angeles nearing the trade deadline in February 2018. He has represented Team Canada internationally five times in his career, winning a silver medal and a gold medal at the World Junior Hockey Championship in 20, respectively, as well as a gold medal at the 2007 Men's World Ice Hockey Championships.
