Sully named as assistant

Boston Bruins head coach Mike Sullivan has been named as Assistant Coach for the 2006 US Olympic hockey team.

Sullivan, 36, is the youngest head coach in the NHL. 2003-04 was his first year at the helm, and he directed the Bs to a Northeast Division title. He spent 11 seasons as a centerman in the NHL, with stops in San Jose, Calgary, Boston and Phoenix, scoring just 136 points (54/82) in 709 NHL contests.

He and Carolina Hurricanes head coach Peter Laviolette, who will be head coach of Team USA, both hail from Massachusetts. Lavi is from Franklin, while Sullivan is from Duxbury. A third Bay State native will also be on board; Keith Allain (Centerville), goaltending coach of the St. Louis Blues will round out the coaching staff.
