NEW PODCAST: Brad Larsen - Columbus Blue Jackets Assistant Coach

THIS IS EPISODE 589 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

Brad Larsen is currently an assistant coach with the Columbus Blue Jackets in the NHL. He began his pro hockey career as a player when he was selected 87th overall by Colorado in 1997 and made his NHL debut that same season.

His NHL career spanned eight seasons, in which he appeared in 294 games with the Avalanche and Atlanta Thrashers (now Winnipeg Jets). After retiring, Larsen went into coaching and was the head coach of the Springfield Falcons in the AHL from 2012-2014. In June 2014, he was named as an assistant coach with the Blue Jackets, where he remains today.

On this episode of the podcast, Larsen shares stories from the day he made his NHL debut, coaching a five-overtime game in the 2020 NHL playoffs bubble, overcoming cancer twice, coming to faith in Christ and being baptized at the age of 34, and why he now coaches for a greater purpose.
