North Stars hire Larson as new general manager

The Breezy Point North Stars junior hockey team has hired Craig Larson as its general manager and Director of Player Operations. The Breezy Point North Stars debuted last season as a new expansion franchise in the North American 3 hockey league and are currently competing in their second season with the league.

“The Breezy Point North Stars are excited to take what we believe is a crucial next step in the development of our franchise,” said Team Governor Joe Bergquist. “Craig Larson has the background, knowledge, experience, and skills that we feel are needed to design and oversee production of our product. He will provide our head coach Bryan Henrichs with the support and tools he needs to build a superior product on the ice.

Larson comes to the North Stars with more than 15 years of junior hockey coaching, high school coaching and scouting experience. Most recently, Craig was a head junior hockey coach in the NA3HL and MNJHL junior hockey leagues. The past five seasons were spent as head coach of the Minnesota Flying Aces and Granite City Lumberjacks. During that time his teams advanced over twenty players to the college level and higher level junior ranks.
