RALEIGH, N.C. (April 1, 2004) – USA Hockey today announced that Carolina Hurricanes head coach Peter Laviolette will serve as head coach of the United States Men’s National Team at the 2004 International Ice Hockey Federation Men’s World Championship, to be held April 24-May 9 in Prague and Ostrava, Czech Republic. Jay Leach and Greg Poss will serve as assistants.

“I am very excited and honored to have the opportunity to represent my country in this capacity,” said Laviolette. “I have had great experiences with USA Hockey in the past as a player and a coach and I am looking forward to this new challenge.”

Laviolette had success in his international competition coaching debut last year, guiding the 2003 Men’s National Select Team to the championship in the 2003 Deutschland Cup in Hannover, Germany. Team USA went unbeaten with a record of 3-0-0, giving the United States its first title in the tournament in its second year of participation.

Laviolette was named the 11th head coach in Hurricanes franchise history on Dec. 15, 2003, and has led the Hurricanes to a 20-25-5 (4 overtime losses) record in 50 games, including an 11-10-2 (4 OTL) record in the last 23 games. The Franklin, Mass., native had served as head coach for the New York Islanders and posted a 77-68-19 (6 OTL) regular-season record in 164 games during the 2001-02 and 2002-03 seasons, good for a .527 winning percentage. The Islanders qualified for the postseason both years after missing the playoffs each of the seven prior seasons.

Prior to joining the Islanders, Laviolette served as an assistant coach with the Boston Bruins after coaching the Providence Bruins, Boston’s American Hockey League affiliate, in 1998-99 and 1999-00. Providence posted a 56-15-4 regular-season record in 1998-99 and went 15-4 in the playoffs to capture the Calder Cup as the AHL’s top team, and Laviolette was named AHL Coach of the Year.

A former defenseman, Laviolette was born on Dec. 7, 1964. He spent most of his 11-year professional playing career in the AHL and IHL, but did play 12 NHL games with the New York Rangers during the 1988-89 season. He represented the United States in the 1988 and 1994 Olympics, serving as captain of the 1994 Olympic squad.
