Former draft pick to coach USA team

DETROIT – A former draft pick of the Red Wings, Brett Larson, has been named head coach of the U.S. Men's Select Team that will participate in the 2012 World Junior A Challenge, Nov. 5-11, in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.

Larson most recently led the USHL’s Sioux City to the 2012 Clark Cup Western Conference quarterfinals in his first season as a USHL head coach. He also serves as the organization’s general manager.

Prior to joining the Musketeers, he served as assistant coach for three years at his alma mater, the University of Minnesota Duluth, where he helped the Bulldogs to their first ever NCAA men's ice hockey championship in 2011. In his tenure (2008-11), UMD compiled a 70-40-15 record and also captured the 2008 Western Collegiate Hockey Association Final Five championship.

Before embarking on his coaching career, Larson, who was selected in the 11th round of the 1990 NHL entry draft by Detroit, played professionally for 12 years in various domestic and international leagues. As a four-year (1991-95) blue-liner for Minnesota Duluth, he recorded 67 points in 133 games and captained the team his senior season.
