RALEIGH, N.C. (March 29. 2005) – 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 2005 International Ice Hockey Federation Men’s World Championship, to be held April 30-May 15 in Innsbruck and Vienna, Austria. Tampa Bay Lightning coach John Tortorella will serve as associate coach.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to lead Team USA in this year’s World Championships,� said Laviolette. “I look forward to working with John Tortorella and the USA Hockey staff to build upon the experiences from last year’s World Championships.�

In 2004 Laviolette helped assure the United States’ spot in the 2006 Olympic Games in Torino, Italy, when he guided Team USA to the bronze medal at the IIHF World Championships in the Czech Republic. Laviolette’s Team USA advanced to the tournament’s Medal Round with wins against Russia and Denmark in the Qualifying Round, and assured at least a fourth place finish when it downed host Czech Republic in its first Medal Round game. After a 3-2 loss to Sweden in the semifinals, the United States downed Slovakia 1-0 in a shootout to take the bronze.

Laviolette was named the 11th head coach in Hurricanes franchise history on Dec. 15, 2003, and led the Hurricanes to a 20-22-6-4 record in the final 52 games of 2003-04. The Franklin, Mass., native served as head coach for the New York Islanders and posted a 77-68-19 (6 OTL) record in 164 games during the 2001-02 and 2002-03 seasons. In two seasons with Laviolette at the helm, the Islanders qualified for the postseason both years after missing the playoffs each of the seven previous seasons.

A former defenseman, Laviolette was born on July 12, 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.
