Longtime NHL coach Peter Laviolette will lead Team USA at the IIHF World Championships next month in Minsk, Belarus.
Peter Forsberg's return to the Philadelphia Flyers' lineup is on hold and the star center's status for the Olympics remains uncertain.
Peter Laviolette on Tuesday was named head coach for the U.S. Olympic men's hockey team that will participate in the 2006 Games. Laviolette coached Team USA at the last two world championships.
Calling Peter Laviolette the next Herb Brooks might be unfair, but there is no denying he might be the start of a new lineage of successful U.S.-born coaches.
