Head Athletic Trainer / Strength and Conditioning CoachPete Friesen

Pete Friesen is in his 20th season with the Carolina Hurricanes as the team’s head athletic trainer/strength and conditioning coach and his 36th year as a professional hockey trainer. Friesen is a dual board-certified Sport & Orthopedic Physical Therapist, certified in both the United States and Canada as an Athletic Trainer/Therapist. He is also certified as a massage therapist and dry needler. He is responsible for the institution of training and dietary standards, preparation of rehabilitation programs and treatment of acute injuries for all Carolina Hurricanes players.
    
In addition to his work with professional teams, Friesen has been associated with the Canadian Olympic and International programs for the last 30 seasons, including serving as the Head Trainer for Team Canada’s gold medal-winning team during the 2004 World Championship in the Czech Republic. He again served as Head Trainer for Canada at the 2011 World Championship in Slovakia, and has been to 10 IIHF World Championships with five gold medals. Friesen has advised six different Canadian programs including men’s and women’s ice hockey, field hockey, soccer, figure skating, softball, wrestling, gymnastics and volleyball in preparation for their respective tournaments. Combining the different elements of each sport, Friesen strives to show athletes various ways of developing elements of their bodies in a true cross-training fashion.
